A few months back Carlie Jean went to her first dance! How did she go from my little dumplin to this beautiful grown up looking young lady? It seemed to happen overnight.
That evening we were supposed to get some heavy storms and even a possible tornado. Not fun weather to be venturing out in, much less to be all dressed up and try to snag some pics!
Thankfully, the weather held off for just a little while and we were able to run up to the hang gliders jump point and get some great pictures with the looming storms in the background!
The theme of the dance was “Alice in Wonderland” and it was decorated so lovely!
Carlie and her friends had a great time!
I was really impressed by the talent of those who decorated! Lot’s of repurposed items but it was SO cute!
Once we got the girls to the dance the bottom dropped out and it rained and rained! I had the privilege to wait on them while they danced the night away, I sat in my car and read books and listened to the radio. It was a good time for us all! I don’t get a lot of alone time, so this was nice!
Those big roses were newspaper!
Such sweet girls! Having so much fun together!
When they came outside after it was over they said… “I can’t wait til next year!” and before they fell asleep for the drive home, I got to hear some of the funny incidents that happened. I love that my kids want to talk to me and share things with me. I hope they always want to do that.
They are growing up fast! That’s for sure!
And I’m going to do my best to enjoy every moment!
