I have a really good reason for being absent and I will share that at another time.
Among all of the craziness, there has been some great things going on at our house.
PROM for example.
Barrett went to the prom last weekend
we had the pre-prom picture party at our house.
Barrett was asked to the prom by one of her good friends.
They were all at a birthday party and "R" grabbed a microphone and started singing.
In the middle of the song he stopped and pulled out a dozen roses and a sign he had made out of jelly beans and asked her to prom.
She was totally surprised, but everyone else knew it was going to happen.
They call it a "promposal" these days.
Poor high school guys are now all in a competition to out do one another.
It took Barrett literally fifteen minutes to find her dress.
She knew she wanted a Lilly from the beginning and she tried on two…….
and then we were on our way home.

We served some light snacks…
chocolate dipped strawberries, pimento cheese and crackers, chicken salad in pastry shells, sweet tea, a bowl of cotton candy, which the kids loved…..
and Barrett made bow tie and bow cookies.
Brittany and Brooke were here!
They were not missing their baby sister's first prom.

Everyone looked so pretty and they all had a great time!
They are already talking about next year's prom!
