SATURDAY... Everyone was tired on Saturday and took it easy. Kianna was invited over to play with Lylie in the afternoon. They went to an indoor play center called Imagination Ave. After they had dinner and played in the yard. Around 7 I got a call that Kianna had fallen and cut her head. We met them at the hospital and after four hours Kianna left with six stitches in her forehead and a teddy bear to cuddle. She has a headache, but she's doing great.
STEPHANIE AND PETER'S WEDDING...We were all up early Friday morning. Caeli and Kianna did not go to school. They were so excited!
First stop was manicures and pedicures for the girls.
(They love to be pampered)
Next stop was hair.
Mariah had a class she could not miss, so Mom picked her up at 11:00. Then she rushed through hair and nails.

Finally everyone was finished and had lunch. We headed to Windstar Gardens.
The girls dressed quickly. Jen and Tawnya have been their dance teachers for years. Their brother is the groom.
My beautiful girls.

Cutting the cake!
Stephanie threw her bouquet and Kianna caught it.
It was such a special day and the girls had so much fun!
WEDDING REHEARSAL... When Mariah and Caeli were in pre-school, they fell in love with one of their teachers. Stephanie was so sweet to them and they were so excited when her son Vincent was born. Over the years we have remained good friends and Kianna and Vincent are very close. Last July Stephanie and Peter (who is the brother of one of their dance teachers) got engaged and Stephanie asked all three girls to be in her wedding. Thursday afternoon we picked the girls up at school. They quickly changed and headed to Peoria for Stephanie and Peter's Wedding rehearsal at Windstar Gardens.
The girls practiced walking in and exiting.
Kianna and Vincent were very serious.
The rehearsal went by without any problems.

Then everyone headed to the rehearsal dinner.
The food was delicious and everyone had fun.
