Tonight's the big night!

Well, the boys have all been practicing for three months now and they're ready! Grayson is the 4th guy from the left.
These are pictures of the first rehearsal for the Mr. Bulldog pageant. This pageant is a fundraiser to raise money for the Children's Miracle Network. Click here to read all about it.
The show is tonight and it will be so fun and entertaining.
They have a couple of big dance numbers, which they are practicing above.
I was so impressed with how involved the dance number was! It is really obvious that they have been working quite hard on it. The unsung heroes of this event are the senior and junior girls who have been teaching the boys all the moves and organizing everything!
Each contestant will be putting on a skit too. My older son, Mackenzie, was a Mr. Bulldog contestant too back in 2003. The whole show is very entertaining and hilarious! They also each have a "little buddy" skit that they will be doing with a child. Grayson is doing his with a boy named Cade. They will be doing a spoof on mattress surfing (click here to read the significance of this)! Grayson fixed up an old Gator truck, which is a child size truck that runs on batteries. He will be pulling Cade on an old crib mattress. It should be pretty cute. They are trying to practice it above, but without the little truck and mattress.
At one point during the show all the moms and all the boys will go back stage. The boys will be wearing tuxedos and one at a time they will each escort their mother out to the front where they will read her a tribute they wrote for her. This is usually a tear-jerker part of the show! We were practicing this behind the stage and I snapped the photo above. I am not sure what Jacob was doing (he's in the pink t-shirt), but it sure looks funny!
Grayson and AJ waiting to go out front. They also will be doing a skit together. They are singing a song from the TV show, Scrubs, called Guy Love. It should be pretty funny!
It was fun being at the practice with Grayson. This is a very exciting project to be a part of and it is quite an honor. I am kind of nervous to be all dressed up and go in front of the school. I hope I won't get too emotional when he reads me my tribute.
They have been doing all kinds of fundraising over these past months. Their goal is $10,000. Grayson has personally raised over $1400.00!!!
One boy will be named King, but in my eyes they are all winners. They have all worked so hard and I am very proud of all of them!

I wish your baby good luck, but I think you should video it and put it on youtube, sweetpea! That would be funny and cute to watch.

Sharon, We are so proud of Grayson and how hard he worked. I'm very impressed that he brought in the most money of all the other boys. He really worked, and that's what this benefit was all about.

We had such a good time at your house. The kids were talking in the car about much they love their cousins. They loved being with them and going to the thrift stores. Garrett even likes Bailey and isn't afraid of her.

I loved talking with you and being with your family. Thank you for the help with the center pieces. I think it's going to look great. I hope you feel really good today and not sad cuz Bulldog is over. You are so special to me. Love, Kathi
