America's Next Top 13 year old

In typical Amy Planning Mode, Kaila and I threw together her birthday party pretty last minute. Her original plan was "Nerd Night", but I wasn't quite sure what we were going to do with that. It evolved into a spa party and from there into a makeover party. Then -cue the choir of angels- Jenny agreed to come play with us. And so it was born...America's Next Top Model party of the year!

The girls arrived at various times, so we warmed up with a little Apples to Apples while we waited.

Then we dug into the cake. Maybe my best one yet. I wasn't sure about it, but the girls have all booked me for their birthday cakes, so I guess it wasn't so bad.


Then it was time for the makeovers!!!! More fun for mom and aunt or for the girls? Probably for us. It was extra much fun because they're so young and willing to trust us. Silly girls.
Here's Kai's mug-shot/before picture.

The girlies getting ready... Big sister helping out...
Mom teasing the heck of the hair... Workin' it....


Kai and Rei waiting for their spin on the catwalk...
The whole gang. I'm not posting anymore pictures of the attendees because I feel creepy posting a bunch of pics of other people's kids, but I had to throw this one on...

And here's a whole bunch more. Have I mentioned that I'm a Sepia whore? It's true. I can't get enough of sepia, and Kai just looks so go in it. I went back and added some color ones to this post because I realized I hadn't and I felt kinda stupid. Hope you like em! It was an amazing party. And the girls each got an 8x10 glossy of themselves to take home.
