Eight years ago when Brian and I got married, as I watched my sweet little redhaired daughter walk down the aisle carrying flowers, I never imagined that she would grow up so quickly. Last week as I helped her get ready for her first real dance, I was taken aback by what a beautiful young lady she is becoming. Since she is only 13 (gulp! I'm still not used to that!) and in seventh grade, she was not allowed to go with a boy. Instead she opted to go with a group of her girlfriends. The evening was made a little bit more special because her Nana Rose and Grandpa Rose, Aunt Raeleen and cousin Sarah had come in for the weekend from Michigan. Since they live so far away, they miss out on alot of these "milestones" in the kids lives. I know that it meant alot for Coley to have them there while she got ready to go.

As I said before, Coley's "dates" for the evening were Hannah and Anna. The three had planned to meet at Anna's house for pictures before hand.

Since it was Coley's birthday, the girls made her a gorgeous "Birthday Princess" crown, that she had to wear at the dance! Here they were bowing down to birthday royalty! These girls crack me up!
She had a great time at the dance. There was much dancing and laughing that night. West Shamokin High School will never be the same!
