all that planning and it went by in a blink of an eye! seems kira and her friends have been talking about dresses and make up and plans for months- then the day finally came! they got ready together at a friend's house and all us parents were there as well. the make up/hair part seemed to take the longest- and by the time the dress part came- they were just in time to be fashionably late! the daylight had gone and indoor light wasn't the best- so we are going to have to make her get all dolled up again so we can take photos! :) getting ready with our good friend delilah- we couldn't have done this without her- she is a stylist and helped kira in so many ways- we are so incredibly thankful for her friendship!
last minute jitters, i think! kira went with her very best girlfriends- the best dates of course :)
we couldn't get over at how grown up she looked! i was so pleased as we had troubles finding things that were age appropriate. the plum color was a surprise addition to us and i think she was secretly thinking of her dad and his laker colors :) and just when we think that she's all grown up, that this is the first of many dances, trying to forget that she was shooing us away as she was anxious to get out the door-- i hear her in the other room, playing her little nintendo DS- something she hasn't touched in 6 months- and smile. :) we love her!!
