I'm a single mom with two great kids living near Dallas, Texas. This is my life; day to day things that are probably only important to me. This is my record of my ups, my downs and the road that I've taken along the way. For whatever reason YOU'RE here, I hope you find something you can enjoy and/or relate to. God bless.

Thursday night Casey and Charlie went to Men's Warehouse to pick up Casey's tux. They said the place was packed and they had to wait quite awhile. Finally they called on Casey and he disappeared for what Charlie said was a very long time. In the mean while, many women were in there with their sons, or waiting on their sons, all getting ready for Saturday's prom. Finally Casey came out of the dressing room in his tux and they checked to make sure it fitted properly and all, after which Casey went back into the dressing room. One of the moms then came up to Charlie and said "your boyfriend looked so handsome in his tux"...to which Charlie replied, with a smile, "thank you". This is going to be one of my favorite stories.

Saturday, Casey and his date, Kasey, met with a group of friends that they were going to the prom with, at the home of one of the girls. Seven kids, one stretch limo and 16 parents and family taking their pictures. It was a lot of fun. The kids left in the limo, after the parents had their fill of picture taking, and went to Colby Steak. I've never been there, but I guess it's a japanese hibachi style resturant. Casey loved it. After dinner they went on to the prom, which was at the Plano Center (for those of you from around here) until around midnight, then to the after prom party that was held at the high school from midnight until 5 a.m. After which, a group of them headed to IHOP and had breakfast. Casey got home a little after 7 a.m., took a bit of a nap and then made it to Church in time to help coach the children's church second service. Believe it or not, after service, he volunteered for the rest of the afternoon building new sets for the children's church. I had to call him at 5 p.m. and make him come home to get some rest. Man, to be young again. Anyway, here are some of the prom pictures I took:

I took 72 pictures with my camera. Yup, y'all are getting off easy. Actually, I'm sure I'll post more later (it's hard to just choose a few) when I get the pictures they had taken at the prom. Let me just say that Kasey looked so beautiful...she's got the most contagious smile.
Casey had a great time, it's something he'll remember for a very long time, and it was worth every penny...all 50,000 of them, that it cost me. :) I am so proud of this kid of mine.

It's about time you got these pics up! I've been here like a bizzilion times already. Sheesh

They look SOOOO Happy and adorable..in an almost grown up way, not a piddle in the floor adorable puppy way.

Can you come up this weekend and take pics for me? I hate doing it and never take enough, then I regret it later, but despite knowing I'll wish I had more, never seem to actually TAKE more.... you see the dilema?

And don't get too attached to this Kasey chick... after all it could get awkward when he marries Becca if she's still around.....

Ok, it's late, I'm tired and goofy, so I'll talk to you later!

Love ya!

Kasey and Casey. I wonder if it was confusing. Different inflections on the names, huh. And she does have a contageous smile. Looks like they all were having fun.

Yeah, I don't get who Charlie is. Still, what a great post with pictures...my favorite kind.

What memories!

So, it's 100 pennies in a dollar. Right? $500.00 seems to be a lot for the prom. Did you pay for everything?

margie ~ I hope you're enjoying your time off, I'll be checking in with you. hugs!

leesa ~ I know. I couldn't think of Kasey's name last week, and Casey said "Mom, could I possibly make it any easier for you??"

tom ~ yup, proud I am.

3 c's ~ I know, I love that story!

rosemarie ~ you're new, so I'm going to give you a break, lol. Read down a little in my last post. Charlie is my 16 year old, Casey is 17. And, yup, $500...tux, tickets, limo, flowers, picture money...Casey paid for their own dinner and breakfast...that'd had made it more like $600. I know...start saving now, hon...it comes on fast!

Awe, they look stunning! 72 pics???????? Whoa! I'm gonna hire you when I get married to take our photos! That place they went out to dinner sounds great- we have a place like that around here, where you need like a party of 12, or you get seated with a bunch of strangers around this huge hibachi table with a talented chef throwing pieces of shrimp in his coat pocket. It's amusing and a lot of fun.

Anyway, hope you're doing well, Charlie looks fabulous!!!
