Cinderella Pageant

So there's a story here. :) Several months ago, I found out about a pageant for girls with special needs coming to Colorado. Every girl would get a crown and a chance to be on stage and look beautiful. Kennedy's been asking for a LONG time to be in pageants (thanks to Toddlers & Tiaras! haha) so I thought this would be the perfect opportunity... no competition, just a fun day. Well, the day before the pageant, they canceled it. Bummer! Kennedy was so sad.

One of the girls at Kennedy's dance studio does pageants (which is how we found out about the special needs pageant) and they were getting ready for a prelim pageant right at the dance studio. This one was not for kids with special needs, but Emma's mom checked into it and said Kennedy was welcome to come. I told Kennedy and she was THRILLED! :) Emma helped Kennedy with her walk and what she was supposed to do... this pageant is NOT Toddlers & Tiaras! No cupcake dresses, no makeup, just natural little girls (and big girls!). Kennedy was excited to change into different outfits and see all the other girls' clothes (some of which she wanted to take home! haha) and she had a great time!! Here are some pictures...

Doing her talent... her dance solo... 





Casual Wear :) 

Beauty :)

Collective Judging... 

The only outfit I didn't get a picture of was her interview outfit. She had to go talk to the judges behind closed doors... I have NO idea what she said in there, but I'm sure she kept them entertained! haha

She won the photogenic award for her division :) 

And then she won the overall for the Mini Miss division!! I was so surprised, and Kennedy was SO excited!!! Here she is posing with the 2012 Queens of each age division. They won the state pageant last year. 

So now, in May, Kennedy (the new Mini Miss Cinderella for Colorado Springs) will go to the state Cinderella pageant. :) It was such a fun day!! She smiled until she fell asleep. :) Don't worry though, I won't become a crazy pageant mom! Promise! ;o)

She is such a little diva, lol. Such a cutie. I was going to say I think Ms. Photogenic totally suits her too. Good luck in May. No matter what happens she'll always be Mini Miss Cinderella ;).

That is SO awesome! Congrats Kennedy! She looked so lovely in that blue dress--it's a great color on her. How fun for her!! Can't wait to hear about her next set of adventures in the pageant world. As long as you don't act like Honey Boo Boo's mom, I think you'll be OK!! :)
