Prom Night

Do you ever get bloggers block? Don't know if that is a word but it is for tonight. It's been kind of a weird week for me. Even though I didn't get my blog updated I have been reading and commenting on several through out the week. I love keeping up with my blogging family.

This was prom weekend and for us it was extra spe
cial because it was Sr. Prom - my baby's last high school prom :(

When I asked her to describe the day and night she simply said "amazing". Yup, that's what a mom wants to hear. Well I thought since I haven't blogged for a while I'll make it up with this post, sorry for all the pictures but they are what tell the story. Now mind you, my only part in this day was to pay for the dress and hair and oh any good blogger I took lots of pictures. My final role in this event was to get up at 3:30 in the morning to hear all the "amazing details" before she took off to spend the rest of the night with a friend.

The day started at 7:00 for Karissa and her friend, hair appointments at 7:45 a.m. and you can't have a formal event with out going out and getting your nails done. I know she spend some time at the mall but I'm not sure for what, guess it's a teenage thing.

The girls came home in time to put their make up on and get dressed.

Notice the tiara?

Here is the back of Karissa's hairdo.

Jake felt it was his r
esponsibility to make sure no one got in there way while they were getting ready.

Note to self: put hoop on first, then the dress. We had quiet a laugh but we finally got the hoop tied tight enough to prevent it from sliding off as she walked.

Here's her dress.

The forecast was for possible thunderstorms and even thoug
h it did rain in the morning, the day turned out beautiful.

Look at those dresses and how grown up they are.

Okay, may be no too grown up :)

Off they go.........

Fast forward to midnight, prom got over and the girls came home to change into their "after prom" dresses. In my day we had one dress and it didn't look anything like what they're wearing now, but that's another story.

My husband and I finished the movie we were watching and went upstairs to get ready for bed. This is what I walked into:

Do they not realize other live in the house also?

This was my favorite find. This dress was left out also and no one was even planning on wearing it.

She didn't get much sleep but I give her credit, she still got through her volunteer time at the humane society.

I am thankful she had an "amazing" time as she puts it, and that God kept her safe and free of harm.

What gorgeous girls. Love the dress - my daughter had one that laced up the back like that and I coveted, wishing I was still young enough to pull off that look!

Beautiful girls, and thanks for sharing the Prom experience. Loved the tiara!!!! The colors of the dresses were so pretty... made me remember my fun proms in the olden days :)

Such a lovely, lovely post. Did you say something about writer's block at the beginning of this post? That simply is not possible! I adored this post.

Your daughter and her friends were picture perfect.

I hate when I have the time and sit down at the computer and then cannot think of a thing to write but want to, so yes, I understand too.

Wow, prom. My oldest son will be a senior next year - I've got 2 more years with my daughter. It just does not seem that long ago that I was doing that; how time flies...
