First Day of 3rd and 4th Grades

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!

 Full length!

Finished with Braces, Round One

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!

Cheer Camp 2014

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...
From last year to this year! What a difference, look how tall Reese is! And how straight Abby's teeth are, braces come off on Monday!

 My girls have really gotten into the habit of smiling for the camera. Sometimes they focus so much that they aren't paying attention to what they are doing!
 Reese really got into this cheer game, its a silly cheer about a turkey.  The ones in the middle say it first and the outside circle repeats.  I can see she was in her element here.

 Never thought of my tiny Abby as a base!  She is a trooper although she says this hurts her leg.
