Getting Ready for Church

I love when the Drama Queen comes home for the weekend! For lots of reasons, but one of the main ones is that she is a self-proclaimed fashionista and she doesn't let us get by with slacking in the dress up department.

Last weekend was Easter and she announced that we were all going to wear black and red and white. She had symbolism for each color, white for the purity of the Savior, red for His blood that was shed on the cross, and black for the darkness the world was plunged into after His death. Sorry I didn't manage to take any pictures. We looked pretty good!

So today she announced that we would all be wearing blue (except that she didn't bring anything blue with her and that sort of fell apart...). So instead she decided to do all the girls' hair in French braids. My little Baby Doll was SOO excited! She barely has enough hair for what she calls an "Elsa" braid.

So the Drama Queen got them all spiffed up while I finished preparing my Nursery lesson. Then Baby Doll and Scout came in for a photo op. After pics were done, Crafty even put real flowers in their braids like Rapunzel. They never look that good on the days the Drama Queen stays away.

And I have proof.

While we were straightening up the Nursery after the meetings were finished, one of our friends came up to the Drama Queen and commented on her ability to do the girls' hair. She had actually watched her do one in Sacrament meeting last week and was suitably impressed. I, on the other hand, was totally embarrassed. Before the braid, that was the way my girls usually look at church.

As the Drama Queen was getting ready to head out the door and back to her apartment tonight, she casually announced to all the kids that they needed to be prepared because next week was going to be purple week. I'm not sure some of the kids even own things that are purple.

Maybe I just need to head to the dollar store for a couple of purple hair ribbons...

What a wonderful young lady she is and the love she has for her family is wonderful..She is a sweet angel on this earth, just like the rest of your girls and boys are too..It is a testament to you and your husband in how they are all being raised..If more children had a Mother and Father like you are to your kids, juvenile justice centers (young kids jails) they would be empty, you have it all in your home, faith, family, food and fun..I pray daily for your Teach to return home still onfire for the Lord and her faith and the Lord will send her a nice fellow who is the same what a combination in a marriage...It is all due to your diligence, faith, love and discipline and your husband too..God's Blessings and have a great week..ciao!X()

Wow! I wish I had Drama Queen here to help us get ready for church! Also, I need someone to help me figure out what to do with Emma's hair because it's just crazy!

Hope you find enough purple for next Sunday!

those braids are beautiful! Maybe you could post how to do them? I can do the traditional French braid, but I've never mastered the more elaborate one.
