Homecoming

The Homecoming Dance at our High School was on Halloween this year, and...
the students were NOT allowed to come in costume.

Beaner and I went shopping a few weeks before the dance. Fully expecting to find a dress that would require adjusting for modesty. We found a cute one in the second store we tried. It would require some adjusting but nothing a cute little black Tee and a yard of black fabric couldn't fix!

By letting out the hem which thankfully was four inches deep and adding another four inches of black fabric the dress made it to her knees. Here's a secret about The Beaner, she is always wearing a pair of basketball shorts! If a dress is too short to cover them... it's too short!We spent about an hour curling her three heads worth of hair and she looked beautiful!
Do you recognize her date? New Kid! They went trick or treating in our old neighborhood, ate at Red Robin, went to the dance and had a great night with good friends.

Looks like a fun night!

And "way to go!" on the daily blog posts...I'm totally impressed. I'm a little hungry now (after all your yummy food references), but still totally impressed.
Have a great day!

It's kind of funny how uncomfortable they all look standing next to each other for pictures. That's probably a good thing.

I am impressed, I don't thing I would have thought to let the hem out and I am a terrible sewer (sp?). Props, it seems to work really well!

Oh, I remember homecoming dances. So much FUN!!! There just aren't enough fun (and decent) parties for adults *sigh*.

Very fun and you did a good job on modestizing the dress. I don't even think that is a word. And yes like Mike said I also think it is funny how uncomfortable they look together.

So pretty, looking all "growed" up. Exciting times for the kids. Sad times for us parents. Well it's kind of a bitter/sweet time. Love to see them grow up, but sad to see them go!

She looks beautiful! I love that she wears the shorts - even under her dress.
