Look at my baby!!




My little baby is all set to go to her first formal! Its been a really exciting evening, getting everything just right and boy has she cleaned up beautifully!! She is a bit of a tomboy, can't expect much else living with 3 older brothers and to see her all dressed up like this tonight was just unforgettable. Her friend, not a boyfriend, though they used to go with each other asked her to his school formal. He arrived with his mum and dad in a big fancy truck. He had got her a beautiful rose corsage for her wrist, all boxed with black ribbon (which he put in his pocket grrr) and a box of chocolates for me! His little hands were shaking in front of us all while he put the corsage on her wrist!! They have gone now and God knows what time they will be back lol. No sleep for me tonight!!

Your daughter looks gorgeous and I love her hair very much. My favourite photograph is the last one - very natural.

Awww shes so much like you Pinky! What a gorgeous daughter you have and she looks as nervous as ever on the 1st photo! Poor thing!

I guess a 'formal' is a prom, we didnt get anything like that in my day!

I love her colours and that they co-ordinated it all too how lovely is that!

Awww bless him for shaking so much and what a kind thought to have got chocolates for you! I hope they have a fabulous night and you manage to get some sleep!
