Maddie's first braids!

A few weeks ago I got ambitious and tried to braid my baby's hair. I sat her down with a bowl of cereal and actually got a pretty good braid on her! The sides were still too short so I just put them into a topsy tail/ twist. I love that her hair is finally starting to grow!

Beautiful Up Do

I snapped this one at the same fiesta as the last posts. I wasn't able to get a front view of this girls but as you can kind of see in the pics the bangs are braided back to the side and pulled into a pony tail with a wormy bun and curled on the bottom. Perfect for a prom or any other special occasion!

Mexican Festivies!

Ok, the internet is finally allowing me to upload pics! I just have to do it one at a time. Now when you are used to uploading 20+ pics in less than 5 minutes, I sure you feel my pain with this 20 minute wait per pic!

This is from the "end of the school year" festivities here in July. (the school year here is from the middle of August till July, with a 5 week summer break. (although they only go from 8 am to 12:30)

Here we have a traditional dance. The kids participating in the dances are the top performing kids in the school. Don't they just look so cute!?
You can kind of see here that the hair is all up into braided buns with a ribbon ties around it.
Here's one of the buns up close.
My husband's niece was in one of the dances as well. For her hair I did my flower girl do on top and curled the bottom.
