Dancing the Night Away...

Ohhhh, I remember getting ready for my formal school dances... picking out the pretty lace or water stained silk dress, matching shoes and lace gloves (it was the 80's, OK!?)... Setting my hair in curlers the night before so it would be WAY TOO PUFFY for the dance (just the way I liked it!)... posing for all those goofy pictures that Mom and Dad just had to take (that was soooo embarrassing and, of course, I now subject my kids to the same thing!)... making my Mom put the boutineer on my date because I didn't want to poke him (which I did for about 5 of the boys this weekend!)... and eating the basic chicken breast at dinner because it was cheap and very clean to eat (no dripping on the dress and I didn't have to take off those precious lace gloves... today, the girls seem to do something similar... they ALL ordered soup and salad (only) for dinner!)

It was Homecoming... as a freshman, this was Chris' first date, and actually, although Jess is a senior, this was the first dance she went to with a date. (They are allowed to go to the formal dances without a date these days... hummm...)

The kids looked WONDERFUL and they had a great time at the dance. We better start saving up... Winter Formal is just a few months away...

Those are two fabulous kids...just look at them. And their mother and dad are pretty special, too. I'm very proud of all of them.
