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.
