Ave (on the left) was invited to the local Homecoming dance by her best friend, Kearstin.
A first for Ave, as we have always homeschooled.
She has been so excited the past few weeks, as we shopped for dress and shoes.
Her sister Gina did her hair this afternoon, then off to Kearstins to get ready for the big night!

These two have been friends for the past 12 years or so.
Even after we moved about 10 miles from the old neighborhood, these two have remained best buddies.

Ave and me. Yes, she really is that tall.
I am 5'(on a good day).
She is 5'7".
Put her in 2" heels, and see what you get!
Pin It!

She's beautiful! Looks a lot like her mama too. Except for the height part! ;-)

My brother and I are the tall ones in my family, our two sisters are...well...shorter.

I hope she has a great and memorable time!

Well dahhhhlings...I'm just about speechless and you know that's a stretch for me!!!!!

Let me count the, black, glossy lips, fab hair, the best ever makeup job...on and on and on... I'm having tearfilled flashbacks from my girls and their dancing days from HS.

Can we all share in the after stuff more pictures?????

Did she have some perfume dabbed behind her ears?????

She is beautiful! Lovely dress too. Your pin on your sweater is very nice, I love to add things like that to my outfit. Nice touch.
