Homecoming

It’s hard enough to believe that my oldest son just turned 16…let alone swallow the idea of him attending school dances with a date. I swear I can still remember my own awkward moments of having my date pick me up and waddling around on 3 inch heels and smashing down my dress hoop skirt as I got in the car. Remember those things? Despite my nostalgia, it’s pretty clear it’s 2011 and not 1990. For one the dresses are much much shorter now. And two everyone has long flat bangs. Back then it was all about poof of your dress and the height of your bangs.

This was Andrew and Ali’s first dance together. They are adorable as a couple I must say so myself. Andrew makes me so proud in moments like this. He always has these proper old fashioned ways of doing things. He had to meet Ali’s parents first before he asked her to the dance. He also made sure that both myself and Ken and his dad met her as well before the big night. He said that he didn’t want her to be nervous about meeting us for the first time the same day as the dance. He is such a gentleman. Okay, now I am probably just embarrassing him like crazy.

Now for the photos…

Andrew made this one on his phone.
