winter formal 2010
The annual high school winter formal was last weekend. It was Alison's last and Madison's first -- a biggie for both of them.
Alison made plans with her peeps for the evening. The only thing on the agenda that would require us (as in Mom & Dad) was pictures. Madison had big plans but they required more of us. She invited 9 of her friends to join her for dinner out. Lawman and I along with another dad provided the transportation. Their photo op was before dinner but since they had time between dinner and the dance they decided to join us at our house again for Alison's group photos.
We have always encouraged our girls to have their friends over. Lawman and I can relax knowing where they are, who they're with and what they're doing.
Never before have we had a turnout quite like this.....
....go ahead...count them. Did you? Twenty high school kids! Beautiful girls. Handsome guys. We had a great time with them, and not only them but their parents! We had a house full. The mothers of the boys immediately put me in charge of directing them. Apparently teenage boys would rather not cooperate for pictures when asked by their mother but when another mom asks, it's no problem. Lots of hustle & bustle and camera flashes. Definitely a night to remember.
