Prom 2013

We were invited out for a pre-prom dinner by Savannah and her parents. 

Getting ready for prom must be hungry work..she wanted to eat baby back she did.  Her Grandpa borrowed her his hooded sweatshirt so she wouldn’t get anything on her dress.

Her dress was beautiful…and so is she.

The back of her dress was corseted..after dinner she thought maybe it should be let out a little.

She went to prom with three of her best friends.

They all walked out together during the grand march.  They are a good group of kids.

The Grand march

Savannah was a little nervous.  She said “I have been dreaming about prom for a long, long  time and now I finally get to go.  It seems so unreal.”

Trica and I enjoyed seeing all the different dresses. Every color you can think of and every style…some were the same exact style but in different colors… sparkly with a cut out back and a slit up the leg.  Far Guy commented on a few of the short dresses..”Holy Cow that dress is short.”  He was correct..and some of the real short dresses should not have been allowed to leave the store without matching pants. 

The young men all looked so handsome.  Two were obviously horsemen, their western cut overcoats and hats gave them away.  Many wore white tuxedos with colored ties.  Some twirled their dates as they were center stage…and some of the more theatrical kids struck a pose.  It was fun to watch:)

  4. What an enchanting dress and she looks beautiful in it.

  5. What a beautiful dress! And oh how I remember my first prom! I also remember my dress, strapless like hers but nowhere near as pretty. Thank you for bringing back all those wonderful memories. :-)

  6. This must be a very exciting time for grand parents. This must have been colorful and interesting to watch when you never know what might happen next.

  7. The prom passage...a sad but wonderful marker of the road to adult hood.

  8. Yes, a princess, indeed! How lovely!
    What? No pictures of the short, short dresses?!

  9. Congratulations and good luck to them all when they graduate!

  10. Prom is such a fun time. Savannah is lovely in her sparkly dress! I went to the grand march here in town last night and almost all of the dresses were sparkly like that. Fun to see.

  11. Beautiful girl in a beautiful dress! Seven years since I saw a Prom Parade, but they are interesting to watch.

  12. What a beautiful dress and a beautiful girl!

  13. Wow, Savannah's dress is stunning!

    Prom is a magical night for teenagers.

  14. Oh, prom - how exciting! Definitely one of the prettiest dresses I've ever seen! Hope it was a night she'll never forget!

  15. Aw, I really like the picture of Savannah and her grandpa, mmm ribs.

  16. Beautiful shots. Gorgeous dress. Lovely girl.

  17. The proms come and go so quickly. I am glad you got to see the grand march. I don't know when they started that tradition, after I graduated for sure 80 years ago but it is a nice thing for parents, friends and grandparents to see. I wouldn't want to go to the dance and stay up all night with them, just want a glimpse of how good they all look. In Osceola, Iowa some of the farm boys bring their dates on tractors, expensive tractors. Others come in their western everyday gear.

  18. I had no idea grandparents could now go to prom to watch all that!
    They look great--and like they are having a wonderful time. :)
