Our First Homecoming

It isn't every freshman whose Daddy is also attending the Homecoming Dance.
Not only was he there chaperoning, but he was the one opening the car doors and escorting the kids out. I soo wish I had a picture of that- this student took his breath away when he saw her.

 My beautiful girl. I love that she wore the corsage on her arm instead of her wrist.
I think she started a trend at the dance!

 Her best friend (boy wise, that is) who was sweet enough to escort her to homecoming when she decided she just wanted to go with a friend, and not one of the boys pursuing her. So much more fun, we thought! He loved (NOT) that people kept telling him he looked like Justin Bieber.
 Practicing their moves!
 Helping her with the corsage. What a gentleman!
This boy is everything a young man should be. I am so glad they are friends.

 We made a last minute appointment to have her hair done, and I am so glad we did!
I never could have even attempted this!
 The real Tam and Cailin!
As hard as it is to believe she has had her first homecoming, it was such a fun experience!
I loved shopping with her to pick out her dress, and then all of us going to help Tam get his clothes (his mother was recovering from surgery, so we got to fill in).
Teenagers are so fun and we had so many laughs together.
As much as I miss the days of little ones, these days are fun and special  in a whole other way.
I am so blessed to be her Mommy and share these memories with her.

She is beautiful. I can tell from the pics both inside and out. Those days seem like just yesterday for me and I know that it will be just a blink of the eye before my own little girls will be heading off to their first homecoming. Enjoy this time! Thanks for stopping by my blog the other day. Many Blessings, Heather

She looked so pretty. I can't imagine when that day comes. Honey and I will need a paperbag for sure.
