It was great that today's pageant, The Nevada Open, was held nearby at the Santa Fe Station Casino. A friend of mine loaned me some hot rollers to try in Etta's hair for the first time and I have to say we had success. Trying to figure out fine thing hair has been problematic for me. But, looks like we have a winner!
|Just before her closed door interview. She looks a little nervous.|
|Here are all the Tots (ages 3-6)|
Turns out she did pretty good in the closed door interview. I only know this because I paid for a score card. She's vastly improved since the beginning of the year when she gave one word answers. She's working on complete sentences now! Of course the judge says she should be expanding more.
Next is modeling in casual wear. She gives and introduction of herself and she did pretty well except she forgot a turn after her intro and she was a little fidgety. Not sure what to do about that! Looks like we need to find a new outfit for state since this isn't appropriate for the season. I hate shopping for the kids because that means I have to drag them both with me from store to store. Not fun!
|Much happier about modeling!|
|She loves the dress too much, I need to teach her to keep her fingers off her dress while on stage.|
|Ready to take the stage.|
|Darn, the judge said she liked this dress but needs to be shorter (at the knee). Maybe she'll hit a growth spurt and I don't have to get it hemmed or purchase something else. Here's for hoping.|
|Waiting for the awards.|
|There was one other girl doing score card only, obviously getting ready for state as well.|
