Last Friday night Sophie had a date with her Daddy to the Mena Homecoming football game. He even got her a corsage for the special event. A miniature version of what the big girls were wearing.
Remember those mums we used to wear? Schikies! I recall having one the size of my head. I could barely hold my shoulder up from the weight of the that bad boy - with all of its trinkets, beads, braids, ribbons, and assorted nifty doodads. But it was all good. What's a little neck strain when you look FABulous! (Sophs found a whistle buried in hers. Oh, boy! Talk about excitement! ...For her. Not so much for her date.)
Oh, and remember how girls would put the jersey number of the football player they were dating on their corsage? Well, on one of Soph's ribbons, instead of having #10 on it, we put "Quarterback's daughter - 1992". A detail which made her very popular with the Cool Crowd, of course.
She was pretty jazzed to show Fafa her "cornflage" when he got home from work. ...Seriously, isn't this just about the cutest thing ever? Even from her back, you can tell how proud she is.
Also, here are some pictures from Adam's football game. He's a coach at Pulaski Academy and was playing in Hot Springs that night. (Unlike poor Mena, who, um, how to put this nicely - didn't win, Adam won his game - thoroughly.) Aren't my niece and nephews CUTE? Their parents aren't too bad either. Hee.
