Today marks the first time Miss Em has had pigtails!
I have always loved pigtails on little girls and was super excited about the prospect of my daughter having bouncy, cute pigtails when we found out we were having a girl. She wasn't having it at first - lots of head turning, whining, sad faces, etc., but eventually I got them in and the miracle part...she KEPT them in!
We were going to our friend Jed's 4 birthday party and it was Star Wars themed so I put her in a semi-Princess Leia-ish top and thought the pigtails would be the closest we could come to the famed Princess Leia side buns.
Let me just say...I LOVE PIGTAILS! She looked so cute and I couldn't get enough of her. The best part is that the pigtails completely fit her spunky, quirky, happy-go-lucky but spitfire personality and be ready to see LOTS more pigtails in the future. :)
It was a fun party - the kids had a BLAST! The weather held out so we were able to enjoy their wonderful backyard and all of the fun play equipment. Here's the birthday boy racing one of his bikes:
Here's McGee's serious speed racing face:
They have a great "raceway" along the side of the house (that's Jed with the super cape):
Guess who had fun swinging? I'm sure she wished she could have stayed here ALL day!
Little bro Jackson (Em's buddy):
They had a cool Darth Vader pinata where you pull the strings to get the candy to fall out rather than hitting it was a bat. It was kind of different, but McGee had the magic touch and pulled the last string before it fell apart and the kids could scramble for candy:
