"S" is for...Super Stars

When I was little my Grandma Parrish use to humor me and my cousins and let us get all dressed up in her high heels, make-up and use the wedding gown she had gotten just as a dress-up dress. On real special occasions Grandma would also give us a treat of fake fingernails and eyelashes! My cousins and I could spend hours upon hours making ourselves glamorous. I even remember putting fake nails on our toes!!! It was an all day event and always ended in a fashion show. Well thanks to a wonderful little friend of Anali's named Brooklynn Blair, we had a similar Fashion show at our house on a snowy Saturday and I have to tell you it was almost like I was 6 again.

It all started as I was sitting in the office.....the girls were whispering and tip toeing around. From the bedroom to the bathroom to the bedroom to outside. As I began to question them they kept saying nothing was up. Pretty soon I see this outside the office door!
"sin (sign) ups for the fasin (fashion) show: include name , date, address and phone. At this point I'm not really getting it but head downstairs to attend to Avalon. Monte rushes in the house and heads right up stairs. I mention that Anali and Brooklynn have been really quite and to check on them. Before I know it, down the stairs comes Monte with an invitation printed from Anali's Disney camera. I was given several dollars and a handful of coins as my money to get my ticket to the show. Monte then begins announcing for everyone to take their seats at the bottom of the stairs. Out comes the first model and then the second. All followed by rounds of applause of course! It was short and sweet and I thought over. Oh no it was only beginning.....this was followed by the red carpet walk where the models stopped and posed for all the cameras.
After which we were also allowed to line up for Autograph signing

The girls then answered a few questions and informed me that I would be allowed to take a picture with them. This was all to much fun and I had such a great time!!!
I love how hard they worked at their fashion show and of course who could forget how Stylin they looked. I love the mismatched colors and clothes they found from the bottom of the drawer....but none the less I felt like I was six again and they were most defiantly SUPER STARS!!!
