Fashion Week

I got called into the lounge today to watch a runway show. The kids, Kyla, Denver and Sienna had found some clothing bags in the garage, set aside for coming years, and decided to try some on. Kyla then helped them set up a catwalk (some blankets) and directed them, choosing their outfits and playing music. Denver and Sienna had so much fun, as did I photographing it! I love that they can get so excited about hand-me-downs. Here's the (MANY) pics.

Totally gorgeous! Gives me hope that Alice will one day be excited about all the boxes of clothes I'm storing for her as Charlotte & Sophie outgrow them :)

They are so bright and clear!!! When my almost 19 yr old youngest was about 4 or 5, she had a loved pair of white cowgirl boots, complete with a silver-like medallion and fringe, that were decidedly large. Every time she would sit down, they would fall off. The pink boots remind me of those days. These make me smile!

This is SO great. The looks on their faces and the poses just kill me!

I'm sure Alice will Sarah. We have one or two friends and family who save up clothes for us. The girls like nothing more than to get big sack fulls, poor them out and start trying on stuff.

Thanks Debra :) Yes, Sienna is a fan of shoes. I heard her coming into my room this morning in those boots, tromp, tromp, tromp, lol.

Me too Jodi, the way they strutted about it was like they were born for the catwalk.

Sure are mama! Thanks :)

Look at those glamour girls, strutting their stuff! Keep the 'tude girls and rock on!!

The Word Party

Loving words clutch crimson roses,
Rude words sniff and pick their noses,
Sly words come dressed as foxes,
Short words stand on cardboard boxes,
Common words tell jokes and gabble,
Complicated words play Scrabble,
Swear words stamp around and shout,
Hard words stare eachother out,
Foreign words look lost and shrug,
Careless words trip on the rug,
Long words slouch with stooping shoulders,
Code words carry secret folders,
Silly words flick rubber bands,
Hyphenated words hold hands,
Strong words show off, bending metal,
Sweet words call each other 'petal',
Small words yawn and suck their thumbs,
Till at last the morning comes,
Kind words give out farewell posies....
Snap! The dictionary closes.
