hmmm, funny how things don't go how you think they will.
I sent Piper off with her Daddy while Paisley stayed in line with me..and we waited, and snoozed... and waited, (oh butt the distraction...pardon the pun!..and before you get all P.C. with me, the PW herself PUBLISHED photos of this in her COOKBOOK! ye gods!) and waited...and stared at MM's bum.Thank God I packed snacks, and my complete lack of decorum so I could continue looking at MM's bum some more.
About half an hour before I got to meet PW, Mike came back with Piper...who decided to join us in line...and instantly made a new friend..of course! Mike decided to plonk down on a bench close to the 'action' and watch the madness that is the PW posse. Although... a few minutes after he sat down he was questioned by a mall cop regarding a package underneath his seat....of course he had no idea what it was and stood up as the FBI came over to investigate! I had no idea the FBI had a stronghold outside Nordstrom? Turns out the 'package' was of an organic nature...not one I wish to repeat...but it was amusingI finally got to the end of the line and the girls and I trotted on stage to meet a still smiling Ree Drummond aka The Pioneer Woman...this is how our neeting went
me: I feel duped...
PW : looking confused
me: someone told me the Jonas Brothers were at the end of this line!
PW : oh...sorry to disappoint...

There were Fancy Nancy coloring pages, bow making, stickers for stickering, and the ever so posh fruit-loop-o-jewelry design center.
Two very happy very tired little girls!

We got school photos back today and I have to actually admit that this is a decent one. Last year...it was a bit of a disaster...completely out of focus. This year however, I actually love it. Just don't hate me for the pony pompoms, she insisted we get them and hey, you're only four once right!

Forgive the craptacular photos, I just couldn't resist this one...Piper loves the swings(I still can't get Paisley in one), and before Paisley took her tumble, shewas having a grand time on the swings at the playground. I'd love a swingset at home, but we can't justify the expense just yet. Maybe in a few years.

I expected there to be a few children in attendance but it turned out it was just Piper and she was in her ELEMENT!
She had such a blast and all the photographers and stylists were wonderful. The shoot turned out to be a 'bedroom scene', how cool is that!
She got to wear jammies and eat rainbow colored cereal and pb&j in BED!
Her favorite part of the job was the jumping! She was so excited she screamed out
"oh-my-gosh-mummy-can-i-really-jump-on-the-bed?!!"and she did...with exuberance!
It was a really nice experience for her and will lead to more work. The Director and Photographers couldn't believe how well mannered she was and how well she follows directions (uhem, that doesn't happen at home so go figure!).
