Flower Girl Madelyn

Our friends Jen Hartman and Chris Kerwood got married April 11. We were honored that they asked Madelyn to be their flower girl.
Madelyn got her hair put in sponge rollers for the big day. If all else fails, Madelyn could go as an old lady for Halloween.
She even got her toenails painted for the first time!
We attempted to lay her down early enough to get a good two hour nap before the wedding, but she didn't go along with our plan. She finally fell asleep in Mommy and Daddy's bed and got about a half-hour nap before we had to go to the church.
Whoops--maybe we should have done a practice run with the sponge rollers! Help--Daddy get a glass of water and let's see if we can make it look pretty.
Good thing she's two and there wasn't a mirror in the room or she would have been in tears!
We made the hair look good and now getting the dress on
The ring bearer (Titus Porter) kissing the flower girl. This occurred all night long. At one point Madelyn decided she had enough and after he kissed her she wiped off the kisses and stomped off the dance floor with her arms crossed over her chest.

They were pretty stinken cute!
Look at the way he's looking at her--that's it, we are starting to look for a house with a basement so that we can lock her up!
Dance, Dance, Dance
Madelyn found the air vents on the dance floor and had a ball running between the two and having the air blow her dress up. She was freezing to the touch but was having way to much fun to stop. Everyone was entertained!
Our own little Marilyn Monroe! At one point her dress flew so high you could see her panties, but we didn't have the camera in hand at the moment.
Madelyn showed Brenda and Allison how to have a good time
