Prom 2013


My Mum has been waiting oh so patiently for these photos.  Prom took place over a week ago.  Things have been busy.  Prom took place and The SM was in the UK for over a week and I was up to my eyeballs in being busy and overwhelmed.  

Making Prom dinner has become a tradition.  It started with Mr. B and now it is Mr. T's turn.  It was just as exciting and fun putting on a dinner for Mr. T as it was for Mr. B.  

Mr. T looked amazing as you can see.  The boy wears a tux mighty fine.


Yeah.  That's my boy.  My handsome 17 year old boy who has always brought sunshine and laughter into our home.


The group.  Five couples who are wonderful individuals themselves.  Having these kids in my home is pure pleasure.  They give me such hope for the future.  Bright and capable youth and so well mannered.


I love candles.  You can't have too many candles and confetti.


Nice to know that all of my post-it note reminders on my cupboard door match the decorations.  I'm so good!!


Every year I make an addition to the decorations.  This year I bought glass tiki lights.  We set them up lining the walkway.  You can't see in these photos but they are different colored glass lanterns.  Blue, Gold, and Red.  Very pretty.


I wonder where my boys get their pyro craze from........


The couple.  Look at the flowers on Mr. T's date.  He bought her the most beautiful wrist corsage thingy.  What are they called when they are on their wrist?  Wristlet?  I dunno...........
(Do NOT look at the wallpaper I've started to pull off the wall so I can paint and redecorate--must focus on cute couple).


Handsome young man.  Beautiful young lady.  I love this kid!!


When Mr. T walked in the door after the Prom a little after midnight he walked into the kitchen and looked around.  While he'd been dancing the night away I had been scrubbing and cleaning everything up and putting everything away.  I'd just sat down finished when he walked in the door.  He looked at the kitchen and said, "It's all gone!  It's like it never happened"!  Well yeah!!!  It's midnight Cinderella!  All magic ends at midnight!    Get your mice and head to bed.  Tomorrow I've got  chores for you!!

The End!

  1. Oh my. So beautiful. So, good grief, why am I tearing up? I keep watching my little ones - all of them - grow up and I am left...I don't know where I am left. Left gazing UP at my sweet daughter towering above me. Being called "my young Padawan" by my eldest son (and darn it if he isn't completely right, except for the young part). And, oh, you know how it is. Amazing. And looking at your son here and his friends, seeing them through your eyes, I see your amazement. Your awe. Your love. Your strength.

    And Mr. T totally rocks a tux!

    1. I know just what you mean and feel Wabi! I do look at my little ones and gaze at them in amazement. The other day I stood looking at a photo of Mr. T when he was just 2 and he is in a onesie jammies with a diaper bum and I wanted to reach into that photo and pick him up and squeeze him and hold him knowing what I know now about what an incredible young man he is growing up to be....... A young man who came up to me yesterday with arms opened wide and gave me the biggest warm hug and said, "Happy Easter Mom".

      I've got to figure out how to build houses around me so my Natives can stay close to me.........

    2. Oh funny - we're wondering how many times we can sever the farm property so that we can keep 'em close. Of course they may have entirely different ideas, but it hardly seems fair! Oh, but watching them grow through all of the stages and emerging as men and women? Incredible!
