Pumpkin Princess

Kiara participated in the Pumpkin Princess Pageant last night. She wasn't the winner, but she had a fantastic time. She gets to ride on a pumpkin carriage tonight in the Kiddie Parade and on Saturday in the big parade. I think that might be the highlight for her.
The theme for our festival was Christmas in the Pumpkin Patch. So, Kiara dressed as Father Frost's granddaughter. Father Frost in the Santa Claus in Russia. The granddaughter helps him deliver all the presents to the boys and girls. Her costume was completed with a pumpkin scepter made by Kiara's great grandfather. She did a great job of explaining her costume during the interview portion.
Here are a few pictures from last night. After the pageant, she also performed with Singsations.
Kiara and her friend Keliah before the pageant.
Singing, "I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus" for her talent.
The trophy, crown and flowers were definitely a highlight for her.

I can't imagine how excited she would have been if she won!

Kiara and Pa while she was waiting to perform. Notice the princess crown!

There was also a big color picture of Kiara on the front page of section B of the big paper in our area. In another local paper, there are quotes from Kiara talking about how her costume is special because we got it when we went to adopt her baby sister. We are so proud of her! She did such a great job!
