Hannah’s Junior Prom was Friday night and I’d been weepy about it all week just thinking about my baby girl growing up. Without being all sappy, I should just say that I’ve looked forward to this for a long time. I’ve walked her down to our town common every year since she was a little girl so that she could watch the Grand March and each year I’ve told her that some day she would be doing that very thing. And this year it was her turn.
It was a hectic day. I picked her up early from school and took her out to lunch before her hair appointment. After that it was rush rush rush to get her make up done and get her dressed. She looked lovely, of course.
I took 174 pictures of Hannah and Rob and all of their friends. I had a very hard time narrowing it down to just these few to show you all.
Her dress was made by my dear friend Lois and Hannah adored it. She said that she wanted to look like Cinderella and I think she did.
Her wrist corsage was beautiful and the blue ribbon and sparkles matched her dress perfectly, as did Rob’s vest and tie.
And the hairdo was just fantastic. Can I just tell you, though – it cost more than her dress!
The weather didn’t cooperate for the kids and the Grand March had to be held indoors at the high school. I must admit I was so disappointed. But I got over my disappointment when, at the end of the Grand March, Hannah was named Prom Queen!!!
(please to note – the prom king is not Hannah’s boyfriend)
I never ever, in my wildest dreams, thought this would happen. It was a complete surprise and a total shock to all of us – Hannah, too. She was thrilled and gracious and beautiful up on the stage, even if she was shaking like a little leaf.
I think Rob considered himself a pretty lucky guy to be going to the prom with the queen.
Of course, she’s always been our little princess. sniff, sniff
