The Bird's Senior Prom

The annual Humoring-Mama-Pose.  
Do you think it would kill him to smile?
Atta boy.  
He reminds me more and more of his father....
But just between us, doesn't he look like that Chuckie doll?
Pretty, patient, pink and priceless.
Belles.
Words fail me.
A couple of Beaux?  
I'm with Dora.

Those kids look great in their prom photos. They're so wonderfully carefree looking! Great shots...

Grandma J said...

I love the pictures behind your children, it sort of brings it all together. I mean if those are paintings of your children.

They all look so cute and happy. You cried, didn't you....yes you did. It's ok, hug the dog.

shara said...

They are so beautiful- love the dresses, and the smiles!

TSannie said...

She's just beautiful...as for him...

Incorrigible....it's the only word that comes to mind.

Dora certainly know!

They look great! I wish I could remember my prom. I was one of THOSE kids!

foolery said...

Yay -- no powder blue tux! And they are beautiful kids, for sure. That doggy wasn't sneering, she was BAWLING HER EYES OUT.

Another eight years or so, and I'm right there with Doggy . . .

Linda said...

You know, Grandma J is a lot more observant than me...I didn't even notice the pictures behind the kids. I went back and looked, and they are lovely!

After the prom, the kids disappear! Of course, they do come home once in a while!

The cards in the mail!

The girls look Beautiful and their dresses are great! It is just as exciting to watch them get ready, as it was 20-40 years ago! TRULY PRICELESS Moments! ! ( a tear)

Ellen said...

Beautiful.

Linda said...

Not only am I not observant, I am so forgetful. No card in the mail for you, but if you send me your address via email, I'll send you one too. We all read the same blogs! LOL!

Have a great day!

Andrea said...

Beautiful kids! And Dora, too.

Snooty Primadona said...

Dora somehow appears to be unapproving, lol. She'll get over it. But, will you ever get over their very last prom? It makes me want to shed tears & sniffle for you. Been there. Done that. Miss it all.

Chesapeake Bay Woman said...

Oh, they're both gorgeous, but I was SO looking forward to a powder blue tux.

Trisha said...

So no powder blue tux? I was sort of looking forward to the retro look! Those kiddos are a nice looking group!

noble pig said...

Oh no where's the powder blue?

They all look adorable and beautiful.

I bet they are still asleep.

Living on the Spit said...

They all look so happy and beautiful!

Love the dress she picked out and Augie makes me smile. He has got the best sense of humor. And those cheeks! I just want to pinch them.

I hope they all had a wonderful time...what memories.

Treasia said...

What a beautiful family MM. Her dress is so pretty and springish.

Sassy said...

Beautiful.....your boy looks like such a character...where do the days go...it probably seems like yesterday when those paintings were done...pretty priceless!

Daryl said...

Oh she looks so beautiful .. and Augie, well I love that hot pink .. was it a pink themed prom?

Deb said...

You must be so proud! I love that you posed them in front of their childhood photos. Great eye!

If you can get through prom, that is great. The next biggie is graduation. Take valium! I'm just warning your right now!!!!

Big Hair Envy said...

Did Augie wear his shoes of many colors???

Oh, I am all verklempt! I have missed you so much, Mama...and the kids! So beautiful and handsome in their Prom finery...

But Dora...awww, I could handle it all until I came to the pic of Dora. That sent me right over the edge into extreme verklemptness. She is so darn cute I just can't stand it. Plus she WILL NOT go away to college, thankfully. :)

Your prom is really early, isn't it?! I love all of these. It's bittersweet, isn't it? And it lives forever in your photographs.
