The very hip and adorable couple across the street is getting married and have asked Anna to participate as the flower girl at the ceremony. Anna is taking her job very seriously. Face it, there is a lot that can go wrong. I've seen flower girls chew their hair, hit ring bearers, refuse to wear shoes, not throw flowers, pick up flower petals once thrown, even sit down on the job. And there is that urban legend concerning the flower girl who left a puddle instead of petals.
This is a job that takes practice. Here, we see Anna, very early in the morning, practicing her different flower girl techniques using these Styrofoam packing piece practice petals. Among her best moves, the Gentle Scattering from waist height, the Joyful Toss high into the air, the Forward Thrust as far down the aisle as possible, the magical Raining Down from wiggling fingers, among others.
She cracks me up!
