Nadia's Circus Party: The Birthday Girl. - Pretty Real

Nadia's Circus Party: The Birthday Girl.

1:24 PM

I searched. and searched. and searched. for the perfect dress for Nadia to wear to her circus party.  And I absolutely LOVE the one she wore.  I fell a little short when it came to shoes.  oops.  I really wanted her to wear these.  And I wanted to make her a bow like this.  Oh well.  She still looked adorable.  Didn't she?

the birthday GIRL:

Not sure if you can see the little girl on the elephant on her dress...but she is light brown with curly hair.  Just like Nadia.

 So I didn't make a beautiful bow...This one looks just fine.  And cost me $2.80 from Forever 21. And that dress...

A little clowning around.

 I love this little face!

And even though I didn't take many great pictures, I did take this one...and I think it's pretty great.

and the birthday girl's FAMILY:
Nadia with her big sister Genevieve.

Nadia and Daddy.

Nadia with mommy.  My sister-in-law took this shot!  I emailed her saying "wow, fresh makeup and everything!"  I can't believe I paused long enough for this.  

This is one of my favorite shots of the day!

Our little family.

I know I said I'd do a "source" post later, but let's be honest.  It could be MUCH later.  So here are some
