POTD #31 - Make-A-Wish Spa Day

Last night, Kennedy and two of her friends from her ballet class, Angelina and Symphony, got to be sorority girls for the evening! :) The Chi Omega house at Vanderbilt held a spa night for all the Make-A-Wish girls and their friends in the Nashville area. They got their finger and toenails painted, ate a bunch of yummy snacks, hung out and watched some TV, and danced!!!

Kennedy, of course, loved to show off her dance moves for all the Chi Omega girls. She may have even taught them a move or two! haha :) The girls in the house were amazing with all the Wish kids and their friends! They treated them like royalty and you could tell they were all having so much fun! I didn't even see Kennedy for a lot of the night, she was off being a sorority sister! :) Who knows, maybe in another 12 years she will be pledging Chi Omega for real! Thanks girls and Make-A-Wish for a wonderful evening. Kennedy is still looking at her pretty nails today! :)

POTD #30 - Randomness!

I am running out of ideas for pictures! LOL I'm glad tomorrow is the end of the month! Here are some leftover random pictures from throughout the month. Enjoy the randomness! ;)

Some of Kameron's drawings... I wish I had a better shot of these!

Kennedy's chicken... she adds more and more detail every time she draws it... 
Look at it now compared to December...

POTD #29 - The Littlest Sincess (Repost)

This story and these pictures were originally posted on November 11, 2008 when Kennedy was asked to be a flower girl in our friend Kristin's wedding. I thought it would be fun to post them again for those who haven't seen them yet... or for those who just wanted to see them again. :)

Once upon a time in a land not so far away, there lived a little Sincess.
One day she was invited to a royal luncheon...

where she was sure to mind her manners and etiquette...

and she was told she would be going to a royal ball!
The little Sincess was SO excited!
It would be her first ball and her best party EVER!

The next day, the royal hairdresser came to fix the Sincess's hair...

while the little Sincess kept an eye on everyone around her,
you know, to make sure they were doing their jobs!

When the royal hairdresser finished the Sincess's hair,
she placed on her head, the royal tiara.

"What do you think?" The little Sincess asked.
Everyone in the land agreed she was indeed, very beautiful.

When the Sincess arrived at the palace, she changed into her royal gown...

"Oh my gosh!" She exclaimed, "I'm so PRETTY!"

She curtsied for her loyal subjects...

And of course, made sure they all stayed on task...

You could tell that the little Sincess just felt SO beautiful...

She even signed that she is a "beautiful girl"...


Soon, another Princess came out with some royal flowers
and the little Sincess asked to see them.

"Oh... they're so wonderful," the Sincess thought.


Back in the waiting room, the Sincess got hungry, so she had some Royal crackers...

And a drink made for a Sincess...

Then she signed "Thank You" to the Royal chef...


The Sincess then went to talk to the Royal Prince...

Then she took a portrait with the other Princesses...

The Prince tried to get in on the action, too!

Then the beautiful Sincess sat and waited patiently...


It was finally time for the Sincess to go outside for the Ball.
She waved to all her fans...

She checked on the rose petals in her basket...

And she smiled for the royal photographers...


She posed with the other Princesses for some royal portraits...




Then she found a handsome Prince to talk to...

And another Princess joined them as well...


The little Sincess prepared her royal rose petals for her grand debut...

And then she waited while the other guests arrived...


Before the Ball started, the Sincess wanted to practice dropping the royal rose petals one last time, so another Princess helped her...

And then they had to pick them all up again...

Practice went well and it was time for the ball!!!


The Sincess and the Princess walked down the aisle and dropped their royal rose petals...

And before she knew it, the ceremony was over and it was time to walk back!


The little Sincess went to talk to the Royal Grandmother for awhile...

And then she went to play with the Princes and other Princesses...




The Sincess posed with the whole Royal party...



And then it was time for the Royal feast!


The little Sincess didn't want to get her gown dirty, so she got a little help with the royal soup...


Then it was time to DANCE!



By this time, the little Sincess was very tired...


so she found another Princess to hold her...



The little Sincess had a fabulous time at the Ball!
And she was the talk of the land...


On the way to the Royal carriage,
she proclaimed that her next Ball would be even better that the first.

And she lived happily ever after.

THE END
