And here is day number two with pics from the Miss Louisiana Pageant. The girls and I would pile in and head out every day after I got off work.
(If you havent' loaded the "abeautifulmess" app, you really gotta do that! See above to see how fun it can make your photos.
As you can see, I gave up the fight on Gabbi wearing make up. Sure. Why not?!
again... Thank you to "abeautifulmess" for all the fun I get to have with their app!
While at the pageant, I ran into Ashton. She is a patient of mine for the past two years. See her neck where she had a trach? She was on a ventilator after having a serious golf cart wreck. She had to relearn everything... walking, talking, sitting, standing... and even how to get herself back up on that stage doing what she loves! I am so proud of her.
Gabs and I were waaaaay up here in the balcony!
And Miss Priss insisted on wearing her wedges. Actually, these are Ellie's, so they are not only inappropriate, but also about a size too big.
This was our view from the crow's nest.
and after the shindig... look at my ragamuffin!
Her little sister was determined to help her out.
But, nope... She'd just flop it back over to the side. I think she preferred it that way.
We borrowed this pretty dress from someone who brings her kids to my office. It saved me some money, and more importantly time and effort hunting for that sucker!
Miss Gabbi Girl humored me and put on something sorta cute. She has suddenly developed an opinion on clothes. And well, let's just say, TASTE isn't her strong suit. It drives me NUTS that she refuses to wear any of her really cute outfits. She won't wear a bow. She won't usually even let me put her hair up in any way. I am not liking this phase at all!
Would you look at this pretty girl?!
Sweet Sarah surely did make Ellie's week by letting her be a part of this cool event.
This is Sarah's family.. brother, dad, and Mom.
Tom is Todd's good buddy. He is also a Monroe cop. Katie is Gabbi's BFF!
They just sorta feel like they are part of the family!
