Dance Lessons for the Prom 2008

For two Saturdays before the prom they offered dance lessons for the teens going to the prom. Sarah and Amanda went together and loved it! Here are a few pictures. See if you can spot Sarah.

Sarah and Phil at the Prom 2008

Here are pictures at the prom. The people in the costumes are chaperones. Check out Phil's monk costume. I loved it!

The theme was called "Once Upon A Time." They even had Cinderella at the Prom and she and Prince Charming danced together. At the stroke of midnight, the clock striked and Cinderella ran out of the prom. I thought that was such a great touch to the theme! Here is a picture of Cinderella dancing with her prince. Sorry it's so dark.

Sarah - Prom Night 2008 - "The Gangsta"

I don't know about the other parts of the country, but in Texas there is a look that all the teenagers give. We call it the "gangsta" look. It doesn't look like a gangster to me, but that's the name of it. So, we had a lot of fun getting everybody's picture doing the "Gangsta."

Oh dear, I look like my grandmother here. I'm getting old.

Sarah - Getting Ready For Prom 2008

Our princess, Sarah, got to attend her first prom on April 26, 2008. It was put on by the Christian Homeschool Prom committee. It was all done by parent participation. It was at held at The Adams Mark Hotel - Sheraton in downtown Dallas in the Grand Hall and Dallas Ballroom. It looked beautiful!

Sarah and Phil went together. She met her friend, Amanda, there. They had a great time together. Phil stayed the whole time and was one of the chaperones. He said it was a lot of fun and a wonderful event for teens. There were 900 teens there! Phil and Sarah spent the night at the hotel (I think a lot of the parents did) so that they wouldn't have to drive late at night. The prom wasn't over until 1 a.m.

Here are pictures of Mandie helping Sarah with her hair. She looked beautiful and could have passed for a princess (words of a mother, huh?).

Enjoy the pictures...
