Oh, Estella.

I think it's safe to say that all three of the Slaughter children have a flair for the dramatic. I have absolutely NO idea where they get it. HAS to the be Slaughter side. I would say, however, that none of them like their drama like Estella Dru. At least once a day she asks, "Mama, when do I get to do my concert?" When I ask if she plans on singing or dancing or what, she says, "I don't know. I just want a lot of people there looking at me." Of course she does.

The second that girl gets home from school, the school clothes come off, and the dress up gear goes on. A few days ago, I told her that we were going to be playing outside and that she needed to run in and change her shoes. This is what she chose....


If she is at home, I can guarantee you, she is in full-on dress up mode. Her favorite time, though, has to be bedtime. Every night we tuck her nicely into bed in a cute pair of pj's and every night, at some point unbeknownst to us, she gets up and either accessorizes or completely changes out of the pj's and into something more glam.

This one was taken a few years ago. (Oh no, it's not a fleeting trend. We're talking years.) This little number she put together was a wedding ensemble.


This one is from last year. The pj's stayed on but were accessorized with a pair of goggles. Very couture chic.

And this shot was from last week. Again, the jammies stayed on, but she paired them with a pair of Tom Cruise-esque sunglasses. And somehow she ended up out of bed and in the floor in a Tinkerbell sleeping bag. Don't ask because I have no idea. I love my little glamour girl.

Ha! That is hilarious! I love it. Maybe she'll be into fashion when she grows up and design her own line of sleeping accessories.

OMG Angela...this is SO funny! Thanks for the laugh! And yes, as soon as I get my computer back in order, I want to be your FB friend. I am scared to even touch FB right now...especially on Blake's work computer!

Steve and I literally laughed out loud at this. She is hilarious - so random and I love it! How in the world does she sleep in those things??
