Veterans Day Parade

Veteran's Day Parade

Yesterday my daughter was in the Veterans Day Parade in Phoenix with Young Champions of America which is the program she goes to for Cheer and Hip Hop. They are huge and have classes for Cheer, Hip Hop, Soccer, Karate, and Art all over the valley as well as in California, Texas, Ohio, North Carolina, Michigan (Tennessee, Indiana, Pennsylvania), Illinois, Missouri, Kansas, Nebraska, and Iowa! They are only $6 per class and are a Non-Profit Organization. Chelina has been doing Cheer and Hip Hop with them for about 2 years. She loves it and her coaches are great! They do parades and competitions each semester.
So yesterday I found out the Phoenix Veterans Day Parade is the 4th largest Veterans Day Parade. I mean I have only lived in Arizona since 1998 and then 6 years as a kid and I didn't know this lol. It was great to go out and see everyone there showing their pride. It was a Little toasty out though :(, 91 degree's is way too hot for November! The weather man Say's that was the last of the 90 degree temps so we will see.

So as far as hair goes, I did a 2 criss cross twists over a scarf and then pigtails with braids then 4 twist in the middle with red, white, and black elastics (her cheer colors). I wrapped the ends of the scarf around the elastics for the pigtails and secured with a small black elastic. So here is the pics. Wasn't able to get many at the parade cause I was also using the camcorder and we were late due to traffic issues. I did take some after getting back though.
I know these aren't the best step by step pic's but it was late :( so forgive me. It is basically 2 styles I have done before combined.

Thanks for reading and thank you to all the soldiers who have served and are serving now.

Squeshed, loose buns

I did this one the other day and it is very simple pretty. I didn't have flowers to match her clothes though but these looked nice for the style.

I separated the hair in 2 sections going across the back of the head. I then made 2 ponytails, one just a bit to the right of the center and the other a little to the left of center. Then, using bobby pin's and twisting the hair just slightly, I formed the bun's. I did this while the hair was still a little damp. Spray well and smooth out and don't forget your flower 's or bows in each side and your done!

We hope you like this style!

This is my sweetheart wearing an Amy Brown Fairytude costume. We did her hair in the Bun that you use a clean rolled up sock to make at Girly Do's by Jenn and we left the remaining hair down in the back with some purple ribbon hanging down. I made a little poof with her bangs and left a bit of the hair on each side down and curled it. Sorry I don't have any step by step pics but we were running late.

Our Halloween was kinda bad. Nobody at our complex was handing out candy so after walking around and only her only getting candy from a few people we were going to a carnival but by the time we got there it was too late so this Halloween was rough. What happened to the people who go all out and enjoy giving out candy to all the little spooks? Holidays are so exciting and magical for kids and people are starting to ruin it for them. But next will be better, we won't be in these apt's by then lol. Hope everyone had a fun, spooky, and magical night!
