so last night was Ali's first official ride-in-the-car-with-other-teenagers- without-parents-dress-up-get- your-hair-done-receive-a-corsage- wear-shoes-other-than-flipflops- outing. can't bring myself to say the D word.
it was like the car commercial where the dad is looking at his 3 year old daughter sitting in the driver's seat as he gives her safety instructions, and the next shot is his teenage daughter backing out of the driveway....
yep, that's what I saw - our little Ali playing dress up and pretending to go out on a da__, I mean outing with her daddy. sniff sniff
"come on dad, please stop embarrassing me, and quit threatening to be cleaning your gun when my da--, I mean outing friend arrives"
this masterpiece took an hour - wish I could take the credit for doing it!
someone was really excited for her sister (I can't understand why said person kept giggling all evening...)
the sweetheart of a guy who was our baby girl's "friend-that-accompanied-her on -the-formal-outing"
how did the family survive you ask? after sitting down for dinner to an empty casserole dish (April Fools kids!), we ate dinner at Yogurt Mountain. Yesiree - chocolate, vanilla, and a plethora of sugary toppings can help a mom & dad through anything! (I still don't understand why Erin keeps giggling to herself)
