Prom 2011

I was determined to wait until my next Friday Facts and Photos post to upload these, but after looking at them, I can't help myself...they're just too good not to share.  :)

As a high school teacher, one of the perks (at least for me) is that I am able to help chaperone each year, whicih basically means I get all dressed up, see the students in their gorgeous attire, and eat some yummy snacks provided by our principal, all without the drama of actually attending the prom.  :)  It's a fun night of talking and admiring the fashions with my fellow teachers, and it's a time I look forward to each year. This year was extra special, though, because my "little" cousin Jared is a junior and was attending this year with his adorable and sweet girlfriend, Ally.  In addition, I was able to see many of my former and current students in their finest, having a great night. 

First, the photos of Ally and Jared before prom:

I couldn't resist a shot of their fabulous shoes.

one of my favs -- love the ring
gorgeous couple


flowers and feathers

Connor wanted Jared out so he could be in the picture with Ally.  :)











And finally, shots from the prom itself:
Candice, Lauren, me, Sarah (my beautiful colleagues)

Jason stopped by to chaperone for a bit.

Connor decided to crash the party in his loungewear.

Jacob, another former student

Kristina, another of my wonderful past students

You all look great! And how come Candice always looks like a student? She doesn't age!

All of these pictures are great! Thanks for including our photo. The only thing that saddens me is that I am officially a "former" student! I miss you, Mrs. Davidson!
