Sunday Snapshot: {Homecoming}

It happens but once a year.

Kameryn puts on a dress. So, of course, I have to share that!!

This year another first happened. We straightened her hair.
Not an easy task, but we considered it "big girl bonding time".

Several weeks ago, Kam asked if some of her friends could just come over before the dance for a cookout, potluck style. She thought it seemed silly to spend so much money to go out to eat. She also thought it sounded way easier to eat in comfy clothes & not have to worry about some wayward drip of ketchup making its way onto the front of someone's tie or dress.
I love this girl of mine.

So, here's the "before" picture:

And, the "after":
I would say they clean up pretty good!

Kameryn went with one of her best friends, Dante, again this year. They have been friends since elementary school.

Dante actually went with us shopping for a dress. What a hoot! Kameryn is not at all cooperative when it comes to dress shopping. Seriously.
But Dante? He was the man.
He saw a girl walking around with this dress. He just knew Kameryn would like it, so he waited for the girl to put it back on the rack at which point he promptly snagged it & brought it to the dressing room. Kam put it on...done.
I may never take her dress shopping solo again.

This is Kam & her friend, Willie.

Kam & Libby

Kam & Kenzie


I love this picture. Kameryn with Libby & Kenzie...They have been best friends since the 2nd grade. I always look forward to basketball season b/c that's the one season they all play the same sport together.
Alas, when the dance was over, Kameryn promptly changed into her sweats, hair into a ponytail, & off she went to a bonfire with friends. It was fun while it lasted, but I have to say, it doesn't really matter what she's wearing...I think she's beautiful.

Totally gorgeous!! They all look beautiful and I love the idea of eating at home with friends instead of out to eat while all dressed up!

What fun!

She IS beautiful and I'd have to say, sounds a lot like me!! The last time I wore a dress was in a friends wedding and the time before that was my own wedding, 3 years ago!

I dress up for church and probably hold a record for changing into my sweats when I get home!

I'm sure her heart is just as beautiful, full of Christ!

Love you!

She's got the right idea...home in casual clothes before the dance!!

They all look beautiful and how fun that they have all been friends for so long and can share special occasions together.

Awwwww, Homecoming....haven't had one of those around here for a while!

Your daughter not only looked incredible in that dress ( I really like it), but she is one smart cookie as well! Love, love, love the idea of having friends over before the dance for a casual potluck dinner!

Glad you have such a beautiful relationship with your girl. Sounds like she has her head on her shoulders and that she is well grounded too.

cute shots with all her friends Dardi.
