I Can't Help It...

I'm trying to organize my photo files and know that some of you have seen these pictures but I just had to show Lorelai off again. She was in her first ever beauty pageant last year...was most photogenic, wrote the best essay, and was second runner up. Every southern belle needs to be in at least one pageant, I suppose, as long as they go about it in the right spirit.



The photographer could tell right off the bat that she would ham it up for him and boy did she. We all laughed and laughed while he snapped and snapped.

  10. She looked gorgeous. Her dress is stunning. I imagine in person it was breathtakingly beautiful.

    Showing of our children is a huge part of motherhood. I vote for more photos, as I never tire of seeing or hearing about good kids. I read enough in the newspaper of the young adults who are in trouble. I like to be reminded of the happy events.
