This is the year that my daughter graduates from High School. In these last two weeks of May and first week of June she attends her Senior Prom, turns 18, and graduates High School.
The dress that she wore for the Prom was her grandmother's dress from 1957. Sondra wore this dress in a wedding for one of her friends. The dress went over the shoulders, but Amelia wanted a strapless dress so Carol Anderson was able to help us out and alter the dress and take up the length just a bit.
Amelia is wearing two crinolins to get the "full" affect. She found a hairstyle that was one that Audrey Hepburn wore in "Breakfast at Tiffany's" and decided that was how she wanted to wear her hair. She wore her Great Great Aunt's pearl necklace and some pearl earrings she borrowed from me. Her date was a friend from school. They went with a group of friends and ate at the "Cheesecake Factory" before Prom.
The following day was Amelia's 18th birthday and she and 4 other friends headed to Ohio to spend the day at a local Amusement Park. They met up with other friends from school and spent the day riding roller coasters.
Now we just have to get through Graduation Open House and Graduation itself.
