CLASSIC ROCK INVITATIONAL...AZ Sunrays hosts a gymnastic meet every year. The dance company is invited to perform during a break. On Saturday all three girls headed to the Cardinal Stadium in Glendale to perform. The girls found their friends and waited for their turn to dance.

After the performance a few families went to Margaritaville for lunch.
The area is beautiful. It was a beautiful day. The temperature was in the 70's and everyone was outside walking around. The girl loved the fountains.

HAPPY NEW YEAR... The Chinese new year starts today. It is the year of the tiger.

Last weekend the FCC (Families with Children from China) met in Tempe to celebrate the new year. The children gathered on the stage. There was a flag for each of the provinces in China. The children gathered behind the province where they were born. Caeli is from Anhui and Kianna is from Gaungxi.

Caeli had a friend (Arielle) spend the night and she joined us for the celebration. We all enjoyed a delicious luncheon.

The girls were joined by another friend from school.

There were games for the children to play and face painting.

The time passed quickly and everyone had a great time. We waited for a long time for our turn to have balloons made,

Caeli got a blue dolphin.

Kianna got a pink dolphin

and Arielle got a beautiful horse. It was definitely worth the wait.

PARTY DAY... The girls had Friday off from school. We were up early getting ready for Caeli's party that evening. Around 11:30 we left to go to the stores. Caeli was so surprised to arrive at Sweet and Sassy Salon.

Caeli had been to the Salon last Spring, but Kianna had no idea what was happening. The first stop was a mini-pedicure. Caeli chose red polish and Kianna chose hot pink.

The girls each picked out a toe ring.
Next the girls got mini-manicures.
My girls are such girly-girls.
The last station was hair. Kianna asked to have a princess up-do and Caeli elected to have a rock star hair-do.
The girls working with them were so sweet. They even painted stars on their cheeks.
All ready for the party!

PARTY TIME... Caeli decided to have a Hollywood Party to celebrate her 9th birthday. She invited 15 of her school and dance friends. They were asked to come dresses as their favorite celebrity.
Caeli was Miley Cyrus.

The house was decorated in a Hollywood theme and each guest entered on the red carpet.
They were given a rose and a V.I.P. Pass as they entered.
Each girl received an Oscar in a ceremony.
Caeli chose an award to give each of her friends. Mariah and Kianna tied for "Best Sister"
The girls had so much fun singing with a karaoke machine.
Kianna got into the singing and dancing.
Pam made a beautiful Hollywood cake for Caeli.
Happy Birthday Caeline!
