Ward/From Wedding ....A Little Late :-}

Wow...It's been one day short of a month since I blogged. I actually wrote this post a while ago, but didn't have the pictures uploaded yet. I've been sewing like crazy instead of blogging. Anyway here are the pics from the wedding.

This weekend we went to Beaumont for Danielle and Keith's Wedding. Maddie and Maycee were flower girls in the wedding. We had a great time.

Friday we took Maddie out of school early and headed down for the rehearsal/rehearsal dinner. It rained the whole way and we made it just in time to stop at Laurie and Nat's house and change clothes and head over to the church.

After the rehearsal, we were going to dinner at Suga's. Maddie and Maycee went bowling with Laurie and Nat. Guy and I had a great time at the rehearsal dinner and then headed over the the Star Bar at Crockett Street afterwards. Everyone danced the night away. =}

The next morning we supposed to meet up for hair appts at 10 am. Well lets just say that didn't happen. I got a text from Danielle at 11 wondering where everyone was and I was just getting in the shower and still had a 30 minute drive. We finally made it though.

Here are some of the flower girls playing around that morning.

Waiting for the wedding to start.

The Reception ...everything was beautiful. There was lots of dancing as you can see from the pictures. All of the flower girls were very excited when they were called to the dance floor to dance to Party in the USA with Danielle. It was the cutest. They also played Little Ole Wine Drinker me. LOL You couldn't get that many Ward's together and not play it at least once.

The girls had a great time being flower girls for Danielle and Keith. I am so thankful that they had the opportunity. It was a great weekend. It was good to get the chance to visit so many family and friends that we don't get to see as often as we would like to.

Congratulations Danielle and Keith!!

Who knew Baseball could be so Entertaining?

OMG...we went to Addison's T-ball game on Saturday. It was so cute. She plays on a team with only two girls, her and Presley. They are also the youngest and cutest on the team. :) Maddie and Maycee were very impressed with their little cousin. It is funny because they've always thought of her as a baby, but she is becoming more of a friend as they all get older.

This is Addison running from third base to home plate.

She can really hit the ball far when she bats!

Kennedi watching Big Sis play ball.

Presley running in to home.

And it's time to go home. Somebody is doing their I want a nap routine.

It's Football Time Again!

Football season is going strong again. We missed the girl's first game because we were out of town. Then between Labor day and the rain all the games were cancelled until now. Last Saturday the morning of the pageant was their first game of the season to attend. They had a great time. It was pretty hot, but they didn't complain. Won't be long and they'll be bundled up, freezing and wishing for a day like this one :)
The run through sign. It is so cute when the little players run through. Just a second or two after this pic was taken, half the team was on the ground because one kid fell and the rest tripped over him.

I didn't get many good pics of the girls. We were playing at the neighboring towns field and it isn't set up really good and it was hard to get great pics, but this is their halftime routine.

This is THE CHEER that Maycee gets to stunt. She always wants to do this cheer, and this cheer Always makes Mommy nervous. I know she isn't very high up, but it isn't going to be good if she tries to get down and they don't let go of her feet. Besides we all know she doesn't have the best track record for not getting hurt. Maddie is doing cartwheels in front of the stunt. I will have to work on getting a pic of her actually doing the cartwheel. :)

A Pageant

Last week I got an email through the girls cheerleading that they were looking for girls to participate in our town festivals pageant. Little Miss Autumn Festival and Junior Miss Autumn Festival.

I asked the girls and they both said they wanted to do it. Since it was only $10 and Sunday Best dress we decided it would be fun. The pageant was based on charm, personality, smile and congeniality. Each contestant had to answer 1 question.

Nana and Maycee are watching the High School show choir perform before the pageant. It was very hot outside, really dissappointing since it had been so nice all week.


Maycee...I really like this picture of her, I wish her number was sticking up weird in the picture.

Everyone waiting for the pageant to start.

5-6 year old contestants for Little Miss. Maycee was just old enough to participate. She did very good with her question considering some of those girls are in 1st grade.

Maycee answering her question

Lady with the mic: What is your favorite holiday and why?

Maycee: My favorite holiday is Christmas.

Lady with the mic: Why?

Maycee: Because I get to see my family....(acting like she might want to say something else)

Lady with the mic: Anything else?

Maycee: Yeah...I get lots of presents.
7-9 year olds competing for Junior Miss. Maddie just barely had to move up to this category since she just turned 7. They explained to them that the pageant was based on the way they answered the question and they needed to give a thorough answer. I immediately knew that was gonna be a question because she wasn't going to go on and on with her answer. I was pretty sure she would just give her answer and why. That's all we had practiced was I kept reminding her she had to answer the why if the question had a why. The first girl on the left was asked her question and answered :"Well Mrs. Smith , my favorite blah, blah, blah" It was funny.

This is Maddie answering her question.

Lady with the mic: If you could go anywhere, where would you go on vacation and why?

Maddie: I would go to Disney world because I like the characters and the rides. (long pause) and it fun.

Lady with the mic: Anything else?

Maddie: nope

LOL...the both did wonderful. I DO NOT speak in front of people. I am trying very hard to make them not have that same fear as me. I am so proud that they both stood up there and did such a great job. They both spoke loudly and clearly.

Maycee was sad because she didn't win a trophy. Maddie won a trophy and crown and sash in a pageant before Maycee was born and Maycee wanted one too. I don't know if we would do another pageant just because she was so disappointed, but I also know that she learned from the experience.

We did tell a little lie to her though. She got the pretty sparkly little barrettes in a gift sack for participating. She didn't see what the other girls got, but the was so excited about those clips. Ashley told her she won them for having the prettiest smile. It was really sweet and she was very excited. Later that night her and Maddie were getting ready for bed and Maycee told Maddie about the clips and that she won them for prettiest smile. Maddie said "hey I have those clips too" Maycee said " Oh, you won prettiest smile too!" Maddie looked at her kinda funny and said "what?" Maycee explained that the clips were for prettiest smile and Maddie asked me and I agreed, but I didn't think she would believe it. I thought that she was just humoring Maycee.

The next day she came home and told me that she shared in share time at school that she won prettiest smile in the pageant at the Autumn Festival this weekend. Oops! Oh well, at least she's happy.

After the pageant was over we headed over to ride rides. Typical carnival experience of dirty, rundown overpriced rides, but the kids sure do enjoy it!
