Snips And Giggles And Birthday Smiles

The Birthday Girl's Day
might have ended like this...
But it started here..
In a cute little place
in DePere, WI
a place of
dress-up
and
dreams-come-true
for little girl's
birthdays. And the little girls
looked like this
when they were
through..
but it was a lot of work
to get to this point...

For one thing..we must entertain

Cousin BabyE

His hair doesn't need curling...

so he needs to find something to do...He loved this little yellow engine..
where little boys sit to get their hair cut..And while BabyE is playing engineer..

the little girls are getting mini-manicures..Lulu got her hair done first.

She wanted tight, coiled braids..

With a little glitter, please...Then she had her mini-mani..Next- it was

SWEETCHEEKS turn...

She looked pretty happy sitting thereUntil we tell her not to wiggle

because she could get burned

with the curling iron..

at which point she looked a tad nervous..But the saddest part of the whole

day's experience was when

SweetCheeks got poked with

a bobby pin and it stuck in her hair..

and made her cry when they

pulled it out...

(It almost made Nana cry too..

as a matter of fact I can feel myself

tearing up right now)..sniff..sniff...She was feeling quite a bit happier

when she escaped to sit in the

little pink car they use for

cutting little girl's hair.And she had fully recovered her poise

by the time she hit the stage to

do her rendition of the
Happy Dance.

and tried to out perform herself

when she realized she had an audience..

We saved the best for last

Our sweet little Ria..

The Birthday Girl.

Beautiful from birth..

our little Ria turned 7 years old

yesterday...2/27/11She straightened her naturally curly hair

for the day..

only to have it re-curled...

A bit of spray and we

are good to go... Off to the party..

Happy Birthday Sweet Little Ria!

Looks like a good time was had by all. Most of the time. If you don't count the crying. Glad Ria had a Happy Birthday! (I even turned my sound on so I could hear the New Kids On The Block singing Happy Birthday)!

This little shop looks like so much fun! Love the train and pink car for the kids to sit in to get their hair cut! The girls clothes are so cute and except for SweetCheeks being traumatized briefly, it looks like so much fun for everyone.I remember my mom taking me to the parlor with her and having to sit with rollers in my hair under one of those big old dryer hoods. On a stack of magazines!
those were the days!
Tell SweetCheeks the curling iron is better!
Hugs- Tete

Oh what a special day for a special girl! I can't wait until my own precious girl is ready for some "grown-up" fun like that but I have to tell you (don't tell Ria) that SweetCheeks kinda stole the show in this post with those faces captured in the mirror. Talk about expressive! I loved it! :-)
