My 1st Prom

Shayne was asked to Prom and it feels like my first Prom all over again. I was really excited when I got the phone call from Austin Ipson asking if he could come decorate her room. I had visions of the perfect Prom dress, how the gym would be decorated, etc... Then I realized that I was the MOM of that girl now and the excitement turned to horror and depression. Austin filled her room with balloons and was so cute about it and really excited. Shayne was all smiles when she saw it. Oh the good old days. I wish I could whip her up a dress on my sewing machine like my Mom did for me. It was an awesome dress. Dark Emerald Green the color of my Mom and my birthstone. I wish I still had it. I think one of my sorority sisters in college borrowed it and didn't give it back. I have totally lost the talent of sewing. I have a mending machine, not a sewing machine. I would like to use the excuse that I have 5 kids now but my Mom had 7 and almost everything we wore was made by her. The Prom is on the 30th so we have 2 weeks to get ready. I will post again after Prom to let you know how it goes. I hope I survive!

Ahhhh prom...such good times! You can send her over to my mom's house if you want, we have a closet full of dresses she could borrow.

Can't wait to see prom pics. Carol Ann and I used to go spy through the window at our kids dances.
