Here are a few pictures from that day - I'm supposed to get a video of it later! If I do, I'll be sure to share it!!
The big picture is Dave Logan (he used to be a football player and now is a sportscaster and radio personality) who we met out in the lobby... he stopped for a picture with Ben, Kennedy and Chase. Kennedy loved her new outfit from The Nest. She got to go a few days beforehand to pick out her outfit, which she had a great time doing, and she gets to keep it now, which is awesome! :) Ben and Kennedy had lots of time to hang out in the green room and became fast friends - Kennedy says he's more awesome than Justin Bieber! ;) Kennedy, Ben and Chase did a GREAT job on the show and it was good practice for what was to come! :)
Yesterday afternoon when we got to the hotel, Kennedy went in to get her hair and makeup done....
Which I promptly fixed afterwards (just the hair, not the makeup) ;).
Kennedy, Katie and Beth hanging out waiting for hair and makeup :)
There was no shortage of fame last night! Kennedy got to hang out with Tim Harris from Tim's Place,
John Roberts and Kyra Phillips (Fox News, CNN, CBS, War correspondents, Journalists, etc etc etc. :) Kyra also received an award last night and John got to walk Kennedy down the runway!
John C. McGinley from Scrubs and also dad to the famous Max who happens to have Down syndrome
And... two more Broncos cheerleaders... that makes 4 in the last week. Think she's part of their squad yet?! :) Miss Colorado was also there and I know a reporter got a picture of Kennedy with her, but I didn't get one. Hopefully I'll get a copy!
Before the show, the models got a chance to practice with their buddies that were assigned to them for the evening... this gave us parents a great photo op as well!! :) Somehow I missed the beautiful Alexandra, but you can read all about these models right here!

Bottom: Tait and Kennedy with Kennedy's buddy Chloe, they had lots of fun together!
They practiced one more time and then it was off to take pictures with stars and hang out until dinner time...
All the models and their buddies lined up to practice the finale
Kennedy and me hanging out before dinner
After an AMAZING dinner, it was time for the fashion show... I didn't get pictures of all the models here because I was trying to stay out of people's way. ;)
My girl - rocking the stage!
Tait, Kennedy, Ben and Sofia :)
Waving goodbye at the finale...
The whole group singing "We are the World"
And as for these two...
Whew! I think it's safe to say that Kennedy has her first crush (you know, besides Justin Bieber). AND she's growing up way too fast! At least we know she has good taste! Something tells me that the Ben and Kenn story is not quite over. ;)
Thanks for sharing our night with us! I have heard rumors of video so of course I will share if I see it! :)
