Layton’s first and last prom!

Layton and Shayna ready for the prom!

Handsome kid isn’t he?

The group!

The boys who you may not ever see in a tie again so take a good look.

I barbecued for a group of fourteen people attending the dance, friends, but also tried to make it nice as well. So they dined out on the porch.

After a while his true colors were beginning to come thru……

The day was all about PROM from beginning to finish.

I started the day off in the Word KNOWING that I wouldn’t make it thru my day without it (smile)

Then, I cooked up a storm making lots of food. Potato salad, romaine toss salad, sun dried tomato pasta salad, deviled eggs, grilled beans, barbecued chicken and wings, fruit pizza…..

Then it was off to the salon for lots of prom hair. I love creating a hair do, just love it so much! I did five heads of hair for the day, whew!

Then, back to the kitchen to get the final touches prepared for the barbecue. Shayna hung out with me while Layton, always at the last minute, began cleaning out his truck. I handed him the bleach spray, let’s just put it that way.

Made it look nice out on the porch for the promers to sit and enjoy in their formal attire.

I took tones of pictures of all the couples, SO MUCH FUN!

They ate and off they went to the Great Wolf Lodge to kick up their heals a bit.

It, for me, was a pretty special day. This was Layton’s first and last dance ever. I think when it was all said and done Layton thought it was pretty special himself.

Anonymous - Well, considering that Layton NEVER smiles for pictures, it seems you’ve found the key to making him smile….have his girlfriend nearby!
