Little Miss Stomach Virus

If you will remember, I posted a while back about SG being in a pageant.  Well, I just got the pictures off of Beas’ camera, so here they are.

Let me start by saying that the Princess woke up with the stomach virus that morning.  She was throwing up left and right.  I tried to talk her into staying at home, but she was having none of it.  We drove to the hotel, got her dressed, and prayed for the best.  She hadn’t thrown up in a while, so we thought we were good to go!

She was a real competitor!  Other than the puke-stained number on her dress, you would’ve never known she was sick!

We then had to wait for them to announce the winners.  It seemed like an eternity.

She was so patient, and tired.

SG got  2nd runner up, and she was so proud of the two Barbies she got!

This is probably one of my favorite pictures of the two of us.  She was such a trooper and was so adamant that she finish on stage.  I was so proud of her!
