The after prom tragedy certainly over-shadowed the festivities leading up to the big night. Still, I don't want to forget how perfectly red my youngest's dress was ( 2nd from left ) and how happy she seemed to be getting ready for the evening.
I cut fresh red azaleas and placed them in their vases on the bathroom counter as the three friends were twigging their tresses.
"Awww. You are trying to impress the boys, aren't you?" youngest speculated.
"Of course not silly. It is my feeble attempt to help make the house worthy of your beauty," I replied.
I think she smiled in that 'my-mother-is-a-dork' sort of way.... but I was sincere.
Note: I did not ask her permission to post this image but my eldest encouraged me to do it anyway since I've subjected her to my blog on numerous occasions.
Note: Youngest texted me and said the environment at the high school was crazy: "TV crews around and everyone is acting weird, but I'm ok."
