A Night To Remember

Shew! We made it!!! Last night was prom for my daughter.  We only had one hiccup when her date texted her saying he hadn't picked up his prom ticket and was afraid he couldn't go.  This mama hen was not accepting that!!! For those who are my friends on Facebook know I posted a frantic message about it.  Luckily, one of my friends stepped up, who works at my daughter's school, texted the principal explained what happened and got special permission that he was able to go. SHEW!!!! Meltdown avoided!!!! Oh not my daughter ME!!!! lol  This was not happening believe you me. lololol.

First stop was hair.  Because of the autism my daughter is very sensitive when it comes to her head.  Luckily, we have had the same stylist since she was born.  So, she is very familiar with her.  I, of course, wanted a French twist but the stylist new best.  My daughter did great sitting calmly through it all and only winced a few times.  It turned out fantastic!!!  Next, was home for dress and makeup.  Of course I did the makeup because she has NEVER worn it ever!!! I'm no master at it considering I don't wear it except for special occasions. lol.  Unfortunately, it was rather cold yesterday in the 40's.  I froze her to death getting pictures.  My Mom and I kept telling her we didn't care this was for us since she is the only grand daughter. lol.

So here you go... Senior Prom 2013...



The beautiful necklace and earrings my sister loaned us :-)


These ones were for me.  I LOVE this log cabin!!!

She said she had a great time and so did her date.  I'm so happy she asked this boy to go. :-)

Oh my goodness Mary, she is stunning! What a beautiful picture with the forsythia blooming! So happy for you and Courtney for getting through this milestone. You are one awesome Momma! I have a friend close by who's daughter is Autistic and she got to go to prom as well. I've just been emotional all weekend knowing Rachel got to go and seeing a beautiful picture of her and now your sweet daughter. I'm weeping again! Wonderful pictures of you all.
Bet you can breath a bit easier today ;-)
hugs,
Sheila

I am a grandparent to an autistic 4 year old girl, I have tears in my eyes looking at your post. She HATES to have her hair combed and I suspect it's because it's so painful. My heart breaks for her future as I know it will be a challenge but seeing your post gives me such joy for hope. Thank you and your daughter for being so open in your journey.

Bless you, Anita

This functioned wonderful, happy I discovered your blog post!
My ML-1210 is still chugging in addition to Windows 8 now. Simply one modification though 9.
61 appears to be the dimension (MEGABYTES), not the model.
The model is actually 3.01.

What beautiful pictures, sounds like your daughter's big night turned out magical! I followed along on your distress over the evening on FB as I follow you there. I bet it was a rollercoaster day and evening but I'm so glad things worked out well. :)
