It was a busy weekend for me this week. Friday night was scrap night. I just wasn't in the mood to scrap and only got one page done! Now I want to scrap and don't have time...Go figure. Saturday morning was Carley's cheer competition. They did such a good job! I am so proud of them. Here's my little cheerleader:




After competition, Mom and I took Carley to her favorite place to eat...McDonald's. We ate outside and she played on the playground. It amazes me how she never meets a stranger. She knew the names of and was playing with all of the kids before we left. She definitely takes after her Daddy. I love it that she can make friends so easily.
Saturday night was the Calendar Girl Pageant. I am not one who is too crazy about pageants. I don't really like that they are judged on beauty and I didn't want Carley to feel like she was not pretty enough if she wasn't picked. It would break my heart if she was upset or felt she was second best. When Carley came to me about wanting to be in the pageant, we had a long talk about it before I let her do it. I explained to her that being in a pageant was about having fun and I didn't want her to be upset or feel bad about herself if she wasn't chosen. She assured me that she wouldn't be upset at all. So, I agreed to let her be in it. So, she asked my nephew Matthew to be her escort. This was the first pageant Carley had been in since she was a baby and I think I was more nervous than she was. She did a great job and she looked so pretty. We had so much fun curling her hair and putting on her make-up.
She really had a great time and wasn't upset at all that she wasn't picked. I was so proud of her. Here are her pics from the pageant:





So, now we have the homecoming parade and Gavin's birthday party to look forward to so I'll be back later this week with more pictures to share with you!
