Winter Formal: Paige

The Winter Formal that our Granddaughters attended was on Saturday.  The girls ask the boys for this date.

Paige’s group of friends are not quite old enough to drive yet.  One of her friends parents went all out to make it a real experience.  They hosted eight girls and their dates, with parents invited to take photos and then a fancy smancy dinner for the teenagers.  After dinner a “fun bus” took them to the Grand March and dance.  After the dance they all went back to the friend’s home to watch movies, play games etc…and were chaperoned until morning….when everyone was served breakfast and sent on their way.  It all made great sense to me…and I could rest easy that Paige was well taken care of.

Of course we didn’t know all this before hand and showed up a little early to take photos.  The parents were gracious and said we were more than welcome.  Of course they adore Paige…don’t we all!

The bracelet

The peyote stitch bracelet I made for her.   I told her she didn’t HAVE to wear it, but she said she loved it. She wore it along with another sparkly bracelet.

I thought this pose was quite model like!

This is probably my favorite photo!  I think her Grandpa was telling her something funny.

I think he adores her. BUT as she says she has goals and a vision and a boyfriend just complicates things.  I keep telling her that she can date in her late 20’s!  Hockey and getting good grades are her whole life right now.  She is the number one or two student in her class.

  7. What a fabulous post! Beautiful Paige with her beautiful friends and handsome date. A friend's smart and generous parents providing a fun and safe overnight activity. Gorgeous dresses (and shoes and jewelry and flowers). And proud grandparents got to see it first-hand and record it for posterity. Excellent!

  9. Lovely! - You must be very proud. They all look stunning, don't they, on the threshold of their lives. I must say, that evening sounds very civilised - much more so than when I was your granddaughter's age!

  14. The photos are all so great. It is fun to see them do formal things that puts them in clothes other than bluejeans and t shirts. Paige has so great photos for memories as she gets to be older.

  23. So you have 2 beautiful grand daughters! Another gorgeous dress and handsome beau and she's smart! Never put off your dreams for someone else...if it's meant to be it will happen regardless. I love the bracelet...did you go blind making it though? LOL! What great pictures you took and the ones on the staircase are gorgeous and so is the staircase and tree. It looks like a lovely home. I got cold just looking at those girls dressed like that at this time of year. LOL! The decorations for the dance were really cool too.

  24. We used to call the girls asking boys fall dance the Sadie Hawkins Dance. But we dressed like farmers with plaid shirts and overalls and such--extremely casual, shall we say. These ladies look gorgeous! Love the bracelet you made and the pic with grandpa! :)

  25. Talk about a hockey playing Cinderella! The shot of her on the steps is PERFECT and the one of the girls in front of the tree will mean so much to them in the future!
