Homecoming 2009

Shelby went to the big game on Friday (our team won! YAY) and then the homecoming dance on Saturday. I can't believe my little girl is slowly becoming a woman!! She looked so pretty when she got all ready for the dance last night. Here is a picture of her and her 'date', Mitch.

They really weren't into me taking a ton of pictures...but a mom's gotta do what a mom's gotta do, right? lol
Shelby's dress was a little 'wild' for me, but she loved it and their homecoming WAS a jungle theme, so I guess it fit well! lol They were absolutely adorable trying to give each other their flowers! They didn't have a clue what to do. Finally, John put Mitch's rose on him and Shelby just grabbed her corsage and slipped it on her wrist. The corsage he got for her was soooooo pretty.
It is just so hard for me to believe that this beauty was once a 4 1/2 pound baby!!! Sigh....

What a lovely photo Robin: so glad you got to take it! Shelby looks beautiful and I really love that dress! I do know what you mean, my son is 32 and I still think of him as my baby lol! (but I don't tell him!) I bet John felt a bit choked up over his daughter. hugs Nettie xx

Awwwwww what a sweetheart! Both of them! They have that awkward "Mom, do you REALLY have to take a picture now?" look. Lol! I love that their dance had a theme, and she looks adorable in that fun youthful dress. Congtaulations mommy, you've done well with her. ;)
