Last week Reese turned 8. She had a Monster High slumber party, for which I missed all of the great moments. There was no card in my camera. That was a serious bummer to discover, I even missed her blowing the candles out and playing pin the bow on the skull. I know, children's parties keep getting stranger.
Well, I did do lot's of crafty things and home made decorations. (this shirt glows in the dark)I was able to capture a few of those things once I realized the error of my ways. She had a great time and loved all of the ghoulish fun.
On Sunday we had a family cookout and my sister was nice enough to get Reese a cake, so I did get this picture of her blowing pretend candles out. :)

These are some grown up girls! I was up sewing these dresses the night before, and they really liked how they turned out. Kane was worried that Abby would get made fun of in her dress but it went well and she really loved it. I love how you can see their different personalities in the outfits. Abby looks taller in this picture but actually Reese is 1/2 inch taller, maybe Abby stood on her toes. :)
I smocked this back in February during the ice storms. The monogram and flower designs are both designed by my friend Frances Jones. I love how it turned out. I actually bought this purple gingham when Abby was four, that was her favorite color back then. I was going to make a bishop out of it, so that was lucky and now five years later its only enough fabric for a sundress!

This girl got her braces off after a year and a half. She was too excited and decided to throw herself a party. Abby always loves a celebration and any excuse to hang streamers all over my house. She and Reese even dressed up in costumes. It was a fun evening. She is thrilled to be brace free and I am thrilled with her beautiful smile.
This is her cute orthodontist. If you are in the Charleston are I couldn't recommend Reagin Orthodontics any more. They are great to work with. I can't say enough good things about them, go see it for yourself!

Abby is on "B team" this year so she has a new different uniform and a serious routine. She gets to cheer on the field this year for the B team football team on Thursday nights through half-time while the Senior Cubs like Reese cheer in the bleachers during the first quarter of the Varsity game on Friday nights. I am going to be using a ton of gas back and forth to school this year I think...
