It's Prom - 2010

Every year in High School tradition there are the sports, activities and the dances. Here you see two beautiful girls all dressed up to enjoy their High School Prom like many girls across the US. But there is so much more behind these pictures. First of all, it’s a first for us to have two girls going at the same time. (These are daughters 4 & 5) Sierra turned “16” in March so she was old enough to go when she was asked.

 Another fact is my husband is a General Contractor, a business that has been hit really hard with the recession. Things are always tight anyway with a family our size, there is always that concern deep in your heart (do we have the money?) You want your children to be able to do all they can and enjoy the fun stuff of youth.

Here is the part that touches my heart.

My girls have such an amazing group of friends, both of these dress are borrowed from those friends, the one Sierra is wearing the young lady had never worn herself yet. Big sister Alissa did the hair and make up and big sister Kristen made the boutonnieres. My girls have always been so sensible about these things. Another thing I love, is that they are modest and they choose to be. This mother's heart is full tonight.

Sweet story Christi. Your girls are so pretty.
This is hard to see because you can't be old enough to have kids this old. I remember when and it seems like not that long ago.
I am glad that you have such wonderful children. This is so good to see.
