Prom ~ A Night to Remember

The girls decided to get ready for Prom
 all together at a friend's house,
so I don't have any of the pre-prom preparation pictures...
however, Nellie did one last try-on of her dress, 
shoes and jewelry before leaving for Elly's.

She looks like a princess, doesn't she?!

Katie picked up Nellie early for their hair appointments...
Here are the before and after photos.


The guys met up with the girls at Elly's, 
where they had their photo shoot 
(I'm looking forward to seeing those pictures, too!)
and enjoyed a home cooked dinner together.

And last but not least,
here's Nellie and Jacob after the Grand March.
(Thanks for sharing this, Polly)

Good times...Great Memories!

Take care,
~Natalie

Our Birthday Girl...


It's Nellie's Birthday Weekend...
so we wanted to celebrate with 
some of our family birthday traditions.

Most of Nellie's friends were scheduled to take the ACT,
so we had a quiet little family celebration at home.

Nellie's favorite dinner was served...
Lasagna, Salad, Garlic Toast.
Plus, Birthday Cupcakes!

She opened gifts...

And, then we brought out the board games...


Happy Birthday, Nellie.
I hope you had a wonderful day!

Take care,
~Natalie

A package from home. 
However, we can't know what's inside until tomorrow, 
as she is at a sleep-over with a friend.

In the meantime...
check out the wonderful variety of postage stamps.

Happy April Fools Day!
Take care,
~Natalie
