Getting ready for the pageant.

The evening of the Miss America Pageant Party, the girls helped me get the house ready. Gabbi climbed under the kitchen table and made sure Lizzie was prepared for what was about to ensue. I find her here often.

Poor Ol' Lizzie. There's no escaping the love of her big sister.

Ellie "helped" by sampling all the candy on the table.

This was BEFORE our trip to town where we bought enough candy to FILL that jar!

The girls helped me sort all of the paraphenalia for the crown decorating and snacks.

Then, Daddy's back was apparently hurting, so he just hit the flo right where he was standing. Being the husband of a physical therapist, he has learned a thing or two about how to manage his own back issues.

Apparently, Gabbi has too. She jumped right up on his back and "helped" him too!

More on a few visitors we had that day tomorrow. I've had computer issues, thus no blog earlier today. Sorry. And big things to report next week!! It'll be a SURRRRPRIIIISE!!


Oh, and I am about to start up my kids' art classes again. I have about 5 or so openings. They will be on Mondays and Wednesdays. (More openings on Mondays) From Feb 6-March 28... 8 weeks. Let me know if you are interested and have questions.
