Prom Night

Pin It Now!

Lauren is just a freshman but got asked to the Junior Prom. The big night was this past Saturday. A big group of kids met at her date's home before they left which is where I took these photos. I took a lot of photos and didn't have one that turned out very well! His mom was taking pictures and you can see that Lauren was looking at her and he was looking at me! I like the candid one below...
Lauren is almost 5'9" and she was wearing 4" heels! This is the first time she's really ever worn high heels and I was so worried she was going to fall, but luckily she didn't! She called me at 9:30 to tell me she was having so much fun...she'll never know how much that phone call meant to me!

She is so beautiful.

Sharon said...

She is beautiful. You must have such a great relationship for her to think to call you in the middle of her evening just to tell you that she was having such a good time.

Lauren looks lovely...so at 5'9"with 4" heels...that would make her 6'1" (love it!!) or...for the mathmatically challenged such as me...5'13"....her date must have been 6'forever"....what a darlin couple!! My daughter in law is 5'9 or 5'9 1/2" AND so is my son...when she wears heels she is a bit taller than he is...and he LOVES it..doesn't bother him at all...I think being tall is a blessing!! I love the candid photo...it shows they are having a blast!

What a doll of a girl for her to call you in the middle of having so much fun...she really LOVES her mom to think to call and share that special moment with you...I'm sure I would have just melted...how cool is she!

Blessings...
Teresa

Oh she is beautiful! Look at that dress! What a fun evening. My heart melted when you said she called you just to tell you she was having fun. She must be a very good kid!

I don't leave many comments but this post touched my heart. I have that same relationship with my daughter and I remember when...She is now 33yrs old with a daughter of her own. It just keeps getting better when you have such a firm foundation to build on. Many blessings to you and Lauren. Patty Ann

Hi Cindy,
Such a big night for Lauren. She looks like you. Hey, I thought of you last night, I picked up the newest copy of Victoria and it's a piece about blue and white.

Hugs,

Michele said...

You're daughter looks so pretty and so happy....especially in the candid photo!! I almost always like the candid photos better, too, and I agree with you that the candid of your daughter and her date is an awesome photo!! You can just see the joy in both of their faces.

I think it's so sweet that your daughter called you to tell you that she was having fun at the prom!! You said she would never know how much that phone call meant to you, but I think you should tell her.....this coming from a daughter myself...I know I'd love to hear that from my mom. Anyway, your daughter is a pretty young lady, and I'm glad to hear she had such a great time at the prom!! Thanks for sharing with us!!

Aw, I'm glad she called you, too. Nature Girl called me spontaneously this past weekend, too, and it really made me day that she thought of me when she was having a great time. Lauren looked beautiful!

Melissa Lester said...

Wow, prom! We just had our first dance recital Saturday; I guess if I blink my eyes we'll be taking prom pictures too. Thanks for sharing.

bj said...

I've had a few of those calls myself and they won't know how we appreciated them until they become parents, themselves!
Both Lauren and her friend looked great.

Sweetie said...

Beautiful picture - a prom that is something that is remembered for a lifetime. Lauren and her date are the epitome of youth and happiness.

Sue said...

Oh Cindy, what a beautiful time you are entering with your lovely daughter. I loved the teen years with my kido's.

Chari said...

Good Evening Cindy!
Your daughter is just lovely...I think she looks just like her mama! I sure can identify with your comment about your daughter calling home just to tell you she was having a great time...isn't that just the sweetest!!! It reminds me of when my daughter got married...she and her newly wed husband left on their honeymoon and about 10pm that evening she called home to ask if it was allright if she stayed out a little later that night!!! After rolling on the floor laughing, I thought, isn't that just the sweetest...she was still thinking about me even on her honeymoon!!! Helps to make "cutting those apron strings" just a bit easier!!! Thank God for our daughters!!! Warmest wishes...Chari
