The new Idaho State Junior Miss...

Madison Leonard

(yes, little sister of yours truly, who in addition to looking fabulous and winning the judges over with her jazzy voice, garnered a bunch of cash-ola for school and a ticket to the Junior Miss nationals in Mobile Alabama! In June!)

Sweet!

We had a great time cheering her on and dressing up for Walmart (what--you don't go in costume in midnight in Pocatello??). Rock on Ruski.




The finalists.



Parental units finally getting to congratulate Madi -- you just can't resist those Leonard girl cheeks.

If you can't get enough of this hottie...check out her talent here. She sang "The Nearness of You", originally recorded by Hobie Carmichael, made famous by Norah Jones. Enjoy.

Oh you talented cousins of mine. Please lend me some talent...

It was so great seeing you and the rest of the girls a couple weeks ago. Let's get together (name the movie) soon! :)

We are so proud of Maddie!! Oh my gosh.....the talent you all have! We got a private showing of this song from Maddie when we were at the house a couple weeks ago. It gave us all chills! How exciting. Thanks for sharing the video on youtube. Hope you and Michael are doing well! We love you. Maybe we will see you when we bring Tyler to the MTC in a month. Take Care! Love, Sandy
