I will start with Winter Formal! Jim and I chaperoned because we didn't like the idea of Jimi being so young and going. I'm glad we did, only because it was kinda fun to see the kids in THEIR element, and how they act around their friends.
ALEX's THREADS: We found them at a discount store and with Jimi's shoes, his shirt, tie, hankie, and pants, oh and Sami a pair of boots, we only spent $40. He wore his hat and looked very suave! This was all his idea, he had told us EXACTLY what he wanted, he has some great fashion sense. Too bad he still HATES to shop and doesn't mind making me miserable when I MAKE him go...
I'm going to go ahead and say, not just because I'm his mom, but he was BY FAR the best looking boy there. He was sweet, and courteous, fun, and outgoing. Jim and I were even stopped by one of his teachers who said they had a gardening/digging project and she was SO impressed by his hard work. She was amazed that he is such a hard worker. I thought Jim may shed a tear, it is so important to Jim that his kids know the value of hard work. Looks like we do teach them something.
Jimi was crowned duchess. She was so excited. Our niece Toni was Queen. All the cousins that went got their picture taken together so when we get that back I will post it. I also got one of Alex and Jimi. They weren't allowed to have DATES! (besides Jimi wanted her boyfriend Ryan to go, but he couldn't because he goes to a different school) They are NOT allowed to date until they are 16, maybe older!
Alex got a new girlfriend at the dance. Her name is Lea, and Jim and I actually knew her from before. We went horse back riding with some friends on New Years Day and she went with all of us. She is so super nice, and gets straight A's and she is so pretty, and looked beautiful at the dance. (her shoes were even worthy of my friendship)
I didn't get a picture of them together because for the first part of the dance Alex was embarrassed of us, but Jimi and her friends wouldn't leave our side, I was embarrassed of THEM! But isn't Lea beautiful?
I'm not sure of all these girls but from left to right, Haven Bevin, Jimi, Haddy Fletcher, Destiny Peeker, Heather Mullen, and I can't figure out who the other girl is.
Again left to right, Jimi, Haddy is hiding behind Jimi, Destiny, Heather, the unknown girl, Ty Hurley and Chaz!
This is our nephew Austin he is in 5th grade. The girl is Haven and she's in 8th. He really likes this girl and she danced with him and made his night. She's a sweetie!
Yes that was ALL of the dress on the girl on the left, I thought if she sneezed her whoo haa would be everywhere. And I was even asked to dance by the boy on the right, yes the dutch (is that what it's called?) Peyton Wyle. He is a sweet boy, very polite. He asked me to dance, so I did, but I think it's because he's been IN LOVE with Jimi for the last 5 years and thought he would get in good with me. They are just friends and he is good with that, but he's still very sweet.
