Prom 2012-Land Before Time

This past Saturday was our daughter's Senior Prom, and despite the dark looking skies and the wind, the rain managed to hold off (it poured last year).

She went with 3 friends from church, and had a ball.  We took pictures at the lovely home of friends of ours (we go to church with them, and their daughter played volleyball with our daughter for 3 years).  They have a beautiful brick staircase leading up to their front door along with huge columns...perfect for pictures.  And, all the dogwoods were in full bloom!

The theme of the prom was Land Before Time.  It was held at a local Museum of Natural History, and they got to dance and party along with the dinosaurs!! Pretty Cool!

The dress, loved that she could wear it on or off the shoulder!


The hair.  She braided her own!
The couple (with straps up).  They matched perfectly!!


The group.  Wonderful Christian, fun loving kids!  All Seniors, college bound!!
The out-takes...






What's that he's pointing at you ask?

That would be her TOMS!  She had the pleasure of driving her friends to Prom in her brand new car (she just got it the day before).  Mom wasn't crazy about her driving in 3 inch heels, so out came the TOMS for driving purposes.  She laughed later saying, if she'd had the sparkley silver ones, she wouldn't have had to change shoes! LOL

The kids had a wonderful time.  They all came back to the house afterward for food, movies and fellowship.  The guys crashed in the basement while the girls slept upstairs.  All were out the door after breakfast together and in church by 10:45!

She looks radiant! What a pretty blue dress- I can only imagine how proud you must be, taking in all these moments. My sis-n-law got me those same Toms for Christmas, but I need to exchange them for my size:)
