Sr. ball snuck up on us. Shayne and I went to look for dresses just for fun before she was even asked and found this dress on sale. So we figured we'd buy it and if Austin, for some strange reason, didn't ask her then she could use it some other year since she's only a Sophomore. Well, he did ask and then we forgot all about it. W e figured that since we had the dress we were doing pretty good. The night before the dance we realized that we forgot to get a boutonniere, that she didn't have any jewelry and that she couldn't go do anything because she was going to Sophie's play with 5 other people and she had to drive. So I took the three little boys and ran to the mall to find jewelry and called the florist to see what time they opened in the morning. The next morning Shayne had to babysit for her swim coach and we had Sophie's soccer game. At noon Austin picked up Shayne for their day date and we took Ben to a birthday party. Then Josh had a soccer game at 2 and after that we had to go pick Ben back up. We got back to the house at 4:30 and Shayne showed up 15 minutes later. We had exactly 1 hour to get her completely ready including hair. We put in the last bobby pin with 2 minutes to spare. We ran in my bed room, got her dressed, took some pictures and Austin knocked on the door. It was very stressful but she looked gorgeous! Here is Shayne's Up Do for Sr. ball:
And here's what Austin picked her up in this time. WOW! We thought the last car was amazing. This one matched there outfits completely and it came with a chauffeur (Austin's Dad, Dale). This was Austin's last High School dance and he went all out. They had a great time.
