PROM 2009!!!!

Finally, I have found time to post prom pictures. I had actually intended on posting them last night. HOWEVER, when I went in to edit one of the pictures, I hit the wrong button and TOTALLY DELETED the entire post! After spending so much of my precious time on downloading all the pictures and then accidently deleting them, I was fit to be tied! To say the least, I was extremely upset. So upset that I had to go to bed so I wouldn't think about all my wasted time. I know....I know...get over it already, right?!!?!?!?

Anyhow, I WARNED you that there were a lot of pictures that we had to choose from. Sorry to bore you, but I have posted quite a few of them below. I guess I am a proud momma, huh?

This is when Todd first got to our house to see Morgan all dolled up.








Morgan's group included 24 students total. A couple of the girls were late for pictures. And no, this is not my backyard. Morgan and Todd actually had pictures taken at our house and at another location that included the whole group.





Morgan and Todd trying to dance a bit for the camera~!






We're still missing two couples for picture on the stairway. I guess it worked out well since we almost ran out of room on this beautiful stairway...which was also not my staircase. lol!






Morgan really did have a great time at the prom. She and another girl were the only sophmores invited this year. Morgan has already mentioned that she would like for their group to be a whole lot smaller next year. I quickly agreed as it took wayyyyyyy too long to get everyone's pictures done.

Last thing, other than shopping and stressing out with Morgan all the way leading up to the prom....guess what other part I played a part of?!?!?!? I was also the stylist for Morgan's hair. I actually had someone (a professional stylist) lined up to come to our house to do Morgan's hair. She called me a week before to tell me she'd mischeduled and had a party scheduled in Morgan's spot. With that being said, who do you think she quickly booted?!?!? I think I did a pretty good job with her hair....don't you???

Now that I FINALLY got these posted, I am calling it a night. I will visit you all sometime tomorrow!

Morgan is just beautiful in that dress. She couldn't have picked a better color. You did a great job on her hair! I am so glad that she had a wonderful time!

Awwww, thanks for sharing these. Everyone looks so beautiful & handsome.

Morgan's hair & dress look wonderful. Those pics look like pics I've taken for my friends' weddings.

Glad that had a wonderful time.

Great pictures, Daphine, and Morgan looks like a living doll! While all the girls looked beautiful, Morgan is the most elegant girl in the group. She stands out from the crowd, and her dress is by far the most stunning! She is wearing it as opposed to it wearing her. Just gorgeous!

She and her boyfriend are a handsome couple, and I am so excited for them that they were invited! I'm sure it was lots of fun! :-)

XO,

Sheila :-)

Those pictures are beautiful. Your daughter is absolutely gorgeous. That brings back such fun memories of prom for me. I can't believe it's been almost 20 years since I went. agh!

I understand being frustrated after spending time on this post and then deleting it. I've done it too! sorry!

April said...

So sorry about what happened with accidentally deleting your post...oh, if I could count the times that's happened to me! Makes you want to cry a river, doesn't it?

Morgan, just as I expected, looks GORGEOUS! I love her dress, hair (you did a super job!), EVERYTHING! Her and her boyfriend make such a cute couple! I love the picture of the two of them when he first saw her...and the one of them walking away together. Why do our girls have to grow up?

Thank you so much for allowing all of us to take part in Morgan's unforgettable night! The pictures were well worth the wait!

Have a blessed Tuesday...and rest of the week! Big hugs!

Kristin said...

Oh my goodness......beautiful!!!! I love the dress, the hair, everything!! I think you did a great job on her hair. I did my own hair for my prom and wedding too :) What a good looking group of kids! It seems like just the other day I was at Prom and that was 15 years ago.....half my life ago! That's hard to believe!

Nice job on the hair too, I sure thought it was a professional updo. Yeah, even us guys know a little about hair sometimes. :) You get married one time and you learn quickly.

Thanks for all the great pics you shared. I wish I had gotten group shots like that when I was in High School.

Love and Prayers,

Tim
