It took a while to choose those first pair of earrings. Everyone wanted something different. Alayna eventually got to choose for herself. We did have to compromise, she chose the biggest square (5mm) cubic zirconias that they offered. We compromised at the 3 mm size.
They gave her a bear to hold and a sucker to keep her occupied! She waited patiently for the 2nd person so both ears could be done simultaneously.Then, oops, one of the posts was bent and didn't make it through the ear AND got stuck in the gun thang dang (to coin a phrase from you, honey) and wouldn't come off. She was SO brave (but wouldn't agree she was brave because she cried a little) and eventually it was dislodged.
THEN, she had to have that side done all over again. Major bummer. It hurt more than I told her it would and she totally called me on it! I had to apologize and explain that that wasn't what usually happens.
Then I had to sign away all rights to sue over the process and agree to take care of them for her since she is a minor. No kidding! I was cracking up!
And back at the Williams' home, we all had blizzards made to order with whipped cream, chocolate sauce and anything else you could imagine! It was quite the rite of passage for her and quite a memorable day! Thanks Kim, John, Sarah, Brandon and Nichole for a great lunch and for sharing our day! We missed you Daddy and hope you get the whole story though these pictures!
