we left from Branson on Wednesday after a great 4 days of fun to St. Louis where shelby would dance thursday and friday with our dance family, KDAS, at her very first National dance competition!
Yeap.... loaded back up and the crew looks thrilled...lol

|I LOVE THIS soo much...|
|"hey momma, take my picture ... i'm so sassy!"|
Time to celebrate w/ some family and friends!!
started off strangely...we were getting ready in the hotel and i was done with eye liner and then this siren started going off and a voice saying we all had to exit the hotel.... found out that something caught on fire on the roof of the hotel!
So instead of just bolting, I grabbed the makeup, packed it in the dance bag that is large enough that Sheebs can fit in, and her costume and we headed down the 3 flights of stairs out the building.. we decided to just head to the convention center and get dressed and ready and OMG the dressing rooms were insane...but we got ready and she was just as happy and felt like a big girl to get dressed in the big girl's dressing room :)
|Spirit Noodle day too! Tashia's noodle was a huge hit!!|
|Bubby was soo ready for this dance stuff to end..lol he was a hit though w/ ALL the ladies, dancers and anyone!|
|Good luck tiny tapper!|
|daddy is so proud of his dancer! this was his first competition to attend. he may never attend another, but he was soo proud of her and dancing in front of 2,000 people is a HUGE accomplishment!|
|she LOVES "escaVATORS" and had a hard time getting on them like i do haha...|
8 HOUR DRIVE HOME...
|i know i put my cookie icing somewhere but i forget where i saved it.... lol|
