Big Day

Today is formal day at Annie's school.
Oh how I wish I could peek in her classroom!
4$ thrift store dress
+
some ribbony straps sewn on (thanks mom:)
=
feeling so pretty!

Some little high heels were the perfect touch.



Oh, and last night 15 minutes PAST bedtime she says,
"Oh Mom...I need a
Annie for President
poster tomorrow."

So off to the store I went.
Stayed up late doing her my homework.

I just did the scallop border & her name in black glitter.
This morning she worked on the little flap hearts that open to tell you why to vote for her, and she glued all the hearts.


Then, I imagined everyone else bringing in a little
piece of printer paper decorated with markers
& wonder if we might have over done it.


I have a feeling we did.

Actually, there are so many kids in her class that would be
AMAZING class presidents.  Good luck everyone!

Every morning before she heads out the door
I give her motherly advice...today's:

Don't go looking for compliments today.
Look for ways to compliment others.

Make sure you let whoever wins class president know you are proud of them, shake their hand with a big smile!

Be confident & know that you are loved.

She looked stunning in gym class today. Even with the "high heels" on, lol. And I have now been ice skating, played basketball and done sit-up's in the bridesmaid's dress from Rachael's wedding. Pretty good for a floor length dress.

And best wishes on the presidential race Annie!

Jo said...

She looks so pretty! You both did a great job on that poster. It doesn't look too overdone, to me at least. Hah. That is also very good advice you have given her. She probably doesn't appreciate it now, but she will when she's older.

Grandma Yellow Hair said...

Ah Annie what a beautiful President you will make.
I am keeping my fingers crossed for you my sweet little friend.
What a great poster that Mom made for you! She is just the best Mom in the whole world.
How is your Aunt Kate I need to check on her.
