I once thought I was smart, maybe even ahead of the game--that is before I had two amazing children who outsmart me every single day. Each day is filled with endless adventures, mishaps, and learning experiences that I wouldn't trade for anything in the world.

Chyenne's First Pageant
Last blog I mentioned how Chyenne was in her first pageant on the 21st of August this year. She had SO much fun.
My sweet girl is a natural on stage. The words we used to describe her for her "about me" portion were: imaginative, articulate, and peppy. TOTALLY her. :)
The pageant host was Georgia's Heavenly Faces and boy did she look heavenly. The title of the pageant was Miss Boots and Bows. She participated in all of the categories that the pageant offered. She was contestant number 17.
For beauty wear, she wore a navy blue dress, white dress shoes, white dress socks, a navy blue and white bow and a pearl necklace. Her hair was curled and she (of course) wore NO makeup. She was absolutely stunning!
She was such a doll on stage. When they announced her name and number, she pranced onto the stage with a smile on her face and her hands on her hips. SUCH a DIVA. She charmed the judges and all of the viewers.
She kept spinning around in circles like a ballerina. SO cute. I was highly impressed with how she didn't FALL. She is an extremely clumsy princess.
After beauty, we had to rush to change her into her WESTERN WEAR. Of course my princess LOVES pigs so we had her a piggy princess shirt made. We paired her pig shirt with a tiered denim skirt, her pink cowgirl boots, and mommy-made bows (with pig centers). She also carried her cowgirl hat on stage.
She was fanstastic. She did her little "spin-arounds", blew kisses, and waved. Absolutely adorable.
She did not want to get off the stage when her turn was up. She is such a star!
We had a good little wait (well at least 30 minutes) until they did crowning... in the mean time, the judges were scoring the "most photogenic", "best dress", "best attire", "best western wear", "prettiest smile", "best hair", "best eyes", "best personality", "miss bows and boots princess", "little miss boots and bows queen", etc.
She was so silly during the waiting time. Cohen was ready for a nap, but he looked adorable sporting his "world's best brother" shirt. He certainly is!
Next came time for crowning. When Chyenne first decided she wanted to do the pageant, she said "I really want to win a big crown"...
Her age division (3 years old, and 2-5 years) was up.
They had all of the girls in her division line up. Then they called out the winners. They called her name SO many times! She won "best hair", "best eyes", "best smile", "best western wear", "best personality", and "QUEEN!" for her division! SO PROUD OF HER!
(slightly OCD, lining her trophies up)
SO incredibly proud of my sweet girl! She's already planning her next pageants...but daddy is going to have to build her a new shelf if she wins any more! SIX TROPHIES, A HUGE CROWN, AND A SASH! SHE ROCKED!
