Bye-Bye Baby

Well, gone are the days of Barbie Dolls, big hair bows and smocked dresses. They have been replaced with homecoming dresses, mums and sparkly high-heeled shoes. Sniff, sniff! Baby girl is gone to her first homecoming dance. With a boy. He can't drive so that is a little bit of a load off my mind. And I don't even think he noticed the shotgun on top of the entertainment center behind his head during all the pictures! Baby girl did though and was quite mortified. She better get used to it. It was dress up for real tonight and I am torn between pride at how beautiful I think she looked to sadness as to how grown she looked.
I am however thankful she still hugged and kissed her dad bye in front of the 80 people there taking pictures (pandalerium!!!) and blew her mama a kiss from the trolley steps. I hope she didn't see me cry.

  1. She looks just beautiful. Her date is very handsome, too.

    When I first glanced at the blog I read 'gone are the days of big hair...' I thought 'not in the Cheney household!' Haha!

  3. Somehow, I don't see how the 2 year old that lay screaming in the hall for 2 hours the night that Richard and I babysat her is quite old enough to be going to a school dance and look so pretty and grown up!!!! I'm afraid to blink, because it will be my baby girl and I'm just not ready for that...love you and Savannah, I hope she had a wonderful time and that you didn't cry too much after you got back home!

  6. Savannah looked precious! I can't believe she is in high school! Daddy Cheney probably has to get that shotgun out often to keep all the boys away! :)
