A Mother Daughter Day


Hannah and I went to the Stake Activity Day Girls Fashion Show this last Saturday through church and it was a wonderful event. The girls from our church ages 8 to 11 and their moms met together for pictures, hair clip making fun, a wonderful talk about being modest and then a modest wear fashion show and a luncheon. They took our picture as we arrived and then the girls got to frame them at the end. Each ward had a theme--winter wear, lounge wear, church dress wear, sports wear, etc--and our ward was School wear. Hannah got her outfit all planned out the night before.
Every girl got to walk the catwalk...

While their outfits were shown off and fun facts were revealed about them...


They walked to the middle, twirled, and then walked to the end for another twirl. I was glad Hannah had her fun fashion show this summer to remind her how it's done!
Hannah was eating up the spotlight as were many of the girls...


Some fabulous friends...

Thanks to Britt for taking pictures!!
We continued the Mother/Daughter theme for the day by going to the mall and getting her EARS PIERCED! Wow! What a rite of passage! She's been asking since right after her 9th birthday but she and I never have a day to ourselves so it was the perfect opportunity. She brought a good friend who held one hand while I held the other! She was extremely brave, especially as there was a crying 8 month old baby getting hers done right before Hannah! She just shrugged her shoulders and said that didn't really hurt. I knew Hannah wouldn't have a problem as she never cried during her shots...NEVER!! She just looked at the nurse with inquisitive eyes, like "What the heck was that? Bring it!" Her twin brother was a whole different story with shots...cried for a full hour and then some! He still is a sensitive guy.
It was such a wonderful day with my girl and I think we need to do these Mother/Daughter days more often!
(I've gone to take head shots with her new earrings twice now and my camera's been dead or just died both times. I will get some shots soon!!!)
