Oh My, The Prom!

My little babies all grown up!

Last weekend my second and third had their school's prom.  Actually, it's called "Protocol" at their Christian school and it's really a neat event.  They present the seniors in a special march and only do old fashion type dances.  They had a live band and the parents go at the beginning to take pictures.  It was so surreal with them getting ready and I was so glad they got to go together.  Ben and Anna are less than 2 years apart in age and have always been close.  So, after nursing Patrick and putting him in the Bjorn carrier, I took pictures of my "not so little guys." : )

Anna and I found her dress at a cool, vintage thrift store on Franklin Street for $15.  And it fit her perfectly!
Thankfully Ron came home early from work to help Ben with his tux.  I didn't know how to "fix" any of it!

This is my favorite shot.  Anna's friend was over getting ready with her and Ben was being so shy taking pictures.  I can't believe how grown-up they are!  It goes by so fast.


  1. Is it promtime already?! Wow. Your kids look great! I never went to my own prom but I hope that when my boys are that age they'll want to go. How fun is it to see your kids dressed up for a fun night?!

    By the way, that last picture is my favorite! It's the type of picture that catches my attention and says 'Hey. There's a story here.' The expression on each of their faces is great!

  2. WOW! I am so impressed with that $15 dress. She looks lovely in it!
