Last night, my youngest had a few of his friends stop by our house for dinner before the first formal dance of the school year.
It was so fun to see them all dressed up. It was also hilarious to see the differences between the boys and the girls. The girls were very excited to have lots of pictures taken.
The boys were not. All the boys were interested in was dinner.
The girls squealed with delight at the pretty candlelit table. The boys were not particularly impressed with anything other than what was on their plate.
Girls, take note - you have seen your future.
My son and his date have been buddies for a very long time. Last summer they struck the classic "if no one better comes along, we'll go to the dance together" deal.
Here they are - each other's last resort.
I absolutely love the dress. But my very favorite are the shoes. Pink Floyd Chuck Taylors. Who woulda thought.
Oh, to be young again.
p.s. Flash photography is evil. But apparently, the kids had some lame commitment during the day...school or something, so we had to make due with what we had.
