Last night was Savannah's semiformal dance. Her dress had little glow in the dark stars on it. This is just a try on. Love that it has pockets.
Emma went to the dance also. How are my granddaughters growing so quickly. Emma's mom got this sweet dress for 13 dollars. Win, win.
This is Emma when she was our baby girl.
Here's Savannah when she was our baby princess.
Savannah and Emma all dressed for an evening of fun with their friends. These girls are cousins...their mothers are my twin daughters.
I received a photo of Emma and her girlfriends. Don't you love those high top sneakers? Emma is taller than the rest. I was hoping for a group shot of Savannah and her pals, but she didn't send one. Is it just me, or is 13 much older than it used to be?? :(:(
We had storms last night. The sump pumps came on in the night, meaning the ground around here is saturated. Flood warnings for most of the state. More rain forecasted for the next two days, then a break for a day, then more rain. I remember that bright shiny thing in the sky...you know , called the sun. I am waiting to see it again. :):)
Wishing all a blessed Sunday. XO
It isn't just you. 13 is older than it used to be. When I look at these young ladies, I am wondering why didn't we look like that? They are pretty girls and I'm pleased for you to have such lovely granddaughters. So cool to be cousins and their moms are twins.ReplyDelete
The really bad storms passed us over, but others nearby weren't so lucky. Tornadoes struck east of us and hit hard. 5 deaths and many injuries and losses. My cousins in Arkansas got hit with storms and flooding.
Nonnie, I kind was wishing it was my twins going to the dance...not my two youngest granddaughters. Boy I feel so old. I fear floods more than anything. It is scary what is happening from the flood waters in Mo. Sorry you cousins had bad weather too. That is so sad about the loss of lives. Blessings to you, stay safe. xoxo, SusieDelete
A very attractive group of young ladies! I hope they all had fun. We've had some nice days though it's not in the 80's today but it is a very nice Spring day. This is Spring isn't it?ReplyDelete
It is still spring Boston Boy. I am wanting to enjoy my spring...but sitting in out of the rain isn't so fun. I like 65 to 75...not a big fan of 80-90 degrees. Hope you can get out and get some great pictures. Blessings, xoxo, SusieDelete
p.s. Gee those girls look more like high school than middle school.
Yes, 13 seems much older these days. The rain in our state is awful and we have had some severe storms in the southern half of the state. I am so tired of the rain.ReplyDelete
Carol, I know Emma had her nails polished and her hair curled. LOL... she was my little buddy for so long...I don't remember her growing up. Oh honey, I am tired of rain and worrying about storms and floods. I really fear flooding. Be safe there. Blessings, xoxo, SusieDelete
Such sweet and lovely granddaughters. Don't they grow up so fast. I love the group photo and those sneakers are fun! Karen has been sharing about all the rain and severe weather. Hope you stay safe and dry. xoxoReplyDelete
Mildred, If I could just keep them all small a bit longer. Just a bit. They were all so cute in their big girl clothes. LOL I know your sister had more rain than we did...but we had well over 2 inches of rain in two days. and more coming. Hope Karen stays safe. Blessings to you and your husband. Love,,xoxo, SusieDelete
Happy first day of May, sweet friend. xoxoDelete
Lovely young ladies. I know that trying on dresses and getting ready was half the fun!ReplyDelete
Karen, I bet some of them primped all day. LOL. I know Emma had her hair curled and Savannah put that blue color in hers. It was the last dance of the year. I have no idea how many they have.They were both happy with their group of friends. I am hoping the rain will let up. It's too wet around here. I want to sit out in the sun.:):) Blessings to you, be safe. xoxo, SusieDelete
Yep 13 is much older than it used to be. When our age group was 13 some of them were still dressing Barbies -lol- long ago in a galaxy far, far away.ReplyDelete
The girls are both as cute as can be. I love that they can get all dolled up and enjoy themselves. Fun with the sneakers on the one girl, too.
Hope you have a good week, Susie. xo Diana
Diana, I know that you truly understand...I miss my "little" girls. I like for kids to stay kids as long as they can, as they have to face life soon enough. Wishing you a great new also. Blessings, xoxo,love, SusieDelete
Oh, the girls are both so pretty! Their dresses are beautiful! What fun they must have had... please be safe...I hope that yellow thing in the sky comes out soon!! For us too... smile...ReplyDelete
Gert, I loved seeing the photos of my grandgirls...but it makes me know they will be grow and gone from home one ...all too soon. Oh my, I am so ready for a sunny day outside. Hope you get sun soon too. Bless you my friend, xoxo,love, SusieDelete
Sweet photos! And yeah, how do they grow up so fast?! I think that thirteen is older than it used to be. I was still riding horse, building forts, and rafting on the creek. Oh well. Your granddaughters are cuties!ReplyDelete
Judy, I know the girls have to grow up...but sometimes I would love for them to be our little ones again. :( I knw I never had a dress up dance ever in middle school.Blessings, xoxo, SusieDelete
HI Susie, Praying you don't have any flooding and that your sump pumps work. We had them at our last house and loved them.ReplyDelete
Your grands look beyond 13-especially Savannah. Your daughters are so lucky to have girls that are best friends. My oldest granddaughter just turned 12, but there won't be any dances in their future-which is fine with everyone. Maybe when they are 17, but since all the friends are homeschooled, I doubt that would happen. Enjoy your week.
Norren, Thankfully the rain let up for a few hours. Today was not near as rainy.Delete
Savannah is 15....her mother held her back in 1st grade. Emma is taller than most girl her own age and some older ones...like her cousin Savannah. LOL I am glad they are friends. Blessings, xoxo, Susie
Emma and Savannah look cute in their dresses. Do they go to the same school? I love these pictures of them when they were little. It sounds like they are close cousins. That's a cute picture of Emma and her friends. She will remember that always.ReplyDelete
It's sunny this week, and getting warmer. Happy May, Susie.
Sheri, The girls do go to the same school , along with Savannah's brother Skylar. I like the girls to have time together. They used to spend nights at each other's houses. They are getting their own group of friends now. Savannah will be in HS next year. Tomorrow will be a bit sunny for us , but cold. Blessings, love, xoxo, SusieDelete
We've watched these girls grow up and it really is hard to imagine them getting dressed up to go to a dance. Life sure rushes by. I'm glad you and I have learned to appreciate what we have and enjoy it. I would like to have some of that rain though...I would send you some sunshine! Hugs, DianeReplyDelete
Diane, I have not had a chance to ask the girls how their dance went. I am anxious to know if they danced with boys. LOL I know Emma had a group of her friends and Savannah had her group too. I will gladly trade some rain for some sunshine. LOL Blessings, xoxo, SusieDelete
Fun times for them for sure..They grow up so fast..Pretty girls..ReplyDelete
Missy, It is hard to think of these girls in such fancy dresses, LOL...they are gangly at times. I love them so much, it's hard to think they are more than half grown. LOL. I am thankful they are good kids and get along together as well s having their own group of friends. Blessings, xoxo, SusieDelete
The girls are so pretty in their prom dresses. My they sure do grow up fast!ReplyDelete
We have had rain and more rain, too. And it's chilly. We should have lots of May flowers with all those April showers! :)
Happy May to you! xx Cheryl
Cheryl, I am so thankful the girls were not going to "prom".lol...they had a semi formal middle school dance. I was surprised they wanted to dressed and get their nails done. :):) Oh yes, it's been down in the mid 30's at night here. That is too cold for me at this time. I am praying the heavy rains headed back here do not stay together but break up. am shocked at the amounts of rain. We are to have another 3 or more inches before the weekend is over. Blessings, xoxo, SusieDelete
I love their dresses, and those of Emma's friends. And to think I wore long full formals to prom. Do girls ever do that anymore?ReplyDelete
It is really nice to have cousins in the same school. I know you are so proud of them.
I hope you see that old sun soon, Susie. Today was one of the most beautiful spring days I've ever seen and here I was stuck inside, down with some kind of respiratory virus when I wanted to be outside enjoying it.
Dewena, The girls were attending a semi formal middle school dance...oh I am in no way ready for them to go to prom....That would just be too much for this old lady. LOL I only have 3 grands still in school. Savannah , her brother Skylar and her cousin Emma. Layla , our great grand is 2 so it will be a bit yet before she goes to school.Delete
We have had some bit of sunshine yesterday (Tues.) and this morning (Wed.) More rain coming in this afternoon and raining all day tomorrow. Yikes. We will be bailing. Be safe there. Blessings, xoxo, Susie
