Thing One and New Kid and ...The Prom

Saturday night was The Senior Prom. Thing One and The New Kid took a couple of beautiful girls and had a wonderful time.Before the Prom they all met at the park by our house for pictures. Check out this amazing group of friends. They really have some great friends and love spending time together. Playing Risk, Ultimate Frisbee, eating, dancing, playing tennis, whatever it is they love doing it together.
Before the Prom the boys asked me if I would make them vests to match their dates dresses. A little scared, I don't sew much, I said yes.These are the corsages I made for the girls. I wanted to add a little blue to Thing 1's dates flowers since that was her main color. I used some Forget me nots from the garden.The pink I got from an Azalea in the garden.

They had lots of fun and even though I'm still learning, it was even fun to make the vests and flowers for their big night.

Beauty job on the vests. They look like they are having fun even if they had to pose for some pictures. I'm kind of glad it's over though.

By the way, What were all of you doing up so early? Actually, in our time zone, I was probably exercising!

Wow! I had to sew a patch on my boys' karate uniforms the other day and I thought I was SuperMom! I'm definitely not brave enough to sew prom attire. You rock!

Jenny you did an amazing job on both the vests and the flowers! Those boys are so lucky to have a mom (and temporary mom)like you. Great job!

Look at you, crafty lady!! That's so awesome that you would agree to do that for your boys! I want to be just like you when I grow up :D

Jenny, the vests look awesome! And, even better in person. I meant to tell you how great they looked on Sunday. And you made corsages too! You are super mom. They are beautiful. Can I be you when I grow up?

This is so great! I've got you all thinking I am Super Girl! Let's just keep you nice and fooled. K?

Remember... My superhero name is Hydration Girl and my cape is Hot Pink Taffeta like New Kids vest!

FYI: We went on a bike ride today (let's pretend it was longer than 2 miles, okay?). Now my bootay feels like it might break when I sit down and for some reason I keep thinking of you. Is that weird? Bahahaha!

It really hurts, though!
