Taylor live (and with the sparkly guitar)

Seeing Taylor Swift in the flesh makes little fans jump, flail about and cause quite a scene. It's true, we've got the video to prove it.

The girls attended an afternoon of their first Country Concert in Ft. Loramie, Ohio on Sunday with Taylor taking the stage at 4 p.m. I'm told Alena and Alivia stole any attention Taylor was getting from the crowd immediately surrounding them.

They had a ball and are ready for next year's Country Concert. Taylor, you'll be back, right?

Make sure you don't miss the boot kick at the very end of this. She means business!

Let's not even imagine the new heights Alena will be able to take sass to when she's another ten years old or so. She does get points for grace, though, as she manages to maintain her performance without disturbing the pile of beer cans next to her.

I've titled this video "Pixie Pogo." Watch as Alivia sizes up the men in the back of the video and then starts jumping to see if they'll follow. Yep, it worked. Next she'll check back to make sure they're still going.

I'm not sure who had more fun, Alena, Alivia or me. I sure hope Taylor Swift will be there next year so we can have just as much fun again!

Yvette, I'm here to tell you, those girls made our day Sunday. They were so cute and well-behaved and waited patiently for Taylor to take the stage, and then it was SHOWTIME!! Long after Steeler took the girls and headed home, we had folks coming up to us asking where they went! (((yes, I know that's not his real name, and not even his most common nickname, but that's who he is to us!)))

Everything was just perfect for them, especially the weather. Had it been any of the other days, the weather would have been an issue, but everything played out perfectly. It was meant to be!

We always have a good time camping and attending the concert, but there were some issues this year with the bus procedure and the weather that had us all grumbling a bit, but those two girls made us all forget about our gripes and just made the whole trip worthwhile. I know I'm speaking for the entire clan when I say "thank you" for letting them come.

My best regards,
