Ok, so sometimes I just surrender! This past weekend was one of those days! I TRIED to get my girls all cute and matchy matchy for the Tigers' Season opener, but alas...My oldest child, who absolutely feel as though she is 13, had another idea in mind all together. And I KNOW what some of you may be saying....Well, if it was MY kid... She'd be wearing what I TOLD her to wear! Ha! Come on over and get you some of THIS!
Cuz, MY 3 year old doesn't back down. She doesn't mind time out, spankings, threats,.... she has a VERY hard head!
This is the outfit both of my girls started out in!
And somewhere between my yard and Staci's yard, we went FARRRR down another path! Complete with mismatched socks, Converse, and shades on her head!
My cousin, Drew, and his new bride, Jennifer, came over to hang out with us.
ANd Don assumed his usual pose of pestering Todd from behind, forever dreaming of the perfect brother-in-law pose of arms around each others' shoulders, and smiling ear to ear.
It'll NEVER happen!
Have I mentioned that I went VERY dark with the hair color? Actually kinda reddish!
ANd have I mentioned that those with a weight problem should NOT wear bullseye-looking tiedye shirts!?
Ok, Don, you have met someone who will pose with you!
And our Tigers barely did squeak that one out!
Of course, Paula and Johnnye, our "staple" friends, came down for a very chill evening on the back porch.
I did have to bring my signature logo cups. Todd and I have quite the collection of FUN styrofoam cups. Sorry, eco peeps. Really, I respect your opinions. I just LOVE these cups!
AHA! And then a few of Ellie's "best friends" showed up!
Most of them carry their heads cockeyed because the bows in their heads are so big!
