Glamour Girls!

We visited the Mac Fam. once again this weekend to get my car fixed, to celebrate Halloween, and to have a sweet baby shower!  So, here's the scoop:  Brooklyn is totally spoiled with tons of attention from her Aunt Pip (especially now that Pip knows she's having a girl) and her "Neenie" (my mom).  It's probably a good thing we went up there for Halloween because those three gals got way more into the costume and make-up thing than I would have on my own.  Here's a little glimpse of the beauty parlor action on Halloween night in my mom's living room.  Yes, Brooklyn WAS the feature make-up artist for my mom and Pip.  Fancy Nancy definitely would have approved, "Ooh - la - la!"


This next picture captures Caden's sweet love for his cousin.  Maybe it's because no one in his immediate family has hair that is not DARK brown, stick straight, and about 1 inch in length (okay, so Carol has a little longer hair than that) that he was so fascinated with Brooklyn's hair.  He probably brushed it continuously for about 5 - 8 minutes.  I had to laugh at my brother's echoing reminder to his son, "start from the bottom!"  That's what my mom always used to tell us because we had such long thick hair that would get so tangled up!  We were well taught about the effective way to "detangle" our wild hair.  Obviously Calvin did learn a few things from the females he grew up with!  :) 

Brooklyn didn't even flinch the whole time, unlike her "composure" when I attempt to brush her mop!



Another picture of Brooklyn and her new best buddy, Rylie.  When Rylie comes to our house, the first thing to come out is the dress-ups.  When we go to the Southwicks, Brooklyn always finds the my little pony miniatures.  Anyway, this one night it was getting late and I decided Brooklyn should get ready for bed.  What else to entice her to do this than make it an extension of "dress-up" time.  The girls got into matching one-piece p.j.'s and had to pose for pictures by the piano with their must-have, well-coordinated purses.


Here's a picture of Brooklyn with her preschool buddies.  I don't know what to say about this other than, the girl has her own "unique" style.  Her character in this shot could best be described as "Wild-haired Wanda strikes a pose on park bench with other normal 3-year-olds."  What a gal - I don't know where she gets this from - really!

That was very brave of Pip and your mom to let Brooklyn do their makeup. She actually did a pretty good job too! Very impressive! I love how she poses for all her pictures. She's a doll!
