Pick Your Favorite PLAYHOUSE WINNER...and ANOTHER WINNER of Another Kind

I love that you all play along
with the 
PICK YOUR FAVORITES 
that I put together.

I am a couple of days late getting to this
because our friend Dr. Ball passed away
and we have had so much going on.
SO
WHICH ONE  Of THESE WAS THE WINNER?

First place with the most votes is:
GAZE AT THAT GAZEBO
Coming in at a close second is
THE LITTLE HOUSE THAT GREW
Coming in THIRD PLACE is:
SWEETLY STONED
I LOVE all THREE of THOSE!
~Thanks so much for playing along~

Here is another kind of 
WINNER!
We sat at Dance Competitions all day yesterday.
You have watched me brag as Ria won in 
every competition she has entered.
She got a Lightening Gold Trophy
(the highest she could get)
and came in FOURTH OVERALL!
That is huge- she is dancing 
with girls that have been
doing competitions for years and this is only her
FIFTH competition.
BUT THE SURPRISE IS!!!!
SWEET CHEEKS
in her 
FIRST EVER PERFORMANCE
got a 
HIGH GOLD
and SIXTH OVERALL!
I might or might not have teared up a little bit.
Little Miss Personality
came "alive" on stage!
It was so fun to watch!
Have a great Sunday.
We have another competition today!

  5. Congratulations to Ria and Sweet Cheeks ~ there's nothing like it to make you feel so super proud! I missed your post on the playhouses but the Sweetly Stoned house (love that name!) reminds me a little of our house - maybe I should look for a front door like that one, it's pretty cute!

  17. Little Miss SweetCheeks seems to have grown up overnight! I still think of her as a five year old, but the last few photos you've shown of her look much more older (bad grammar).
