playing dress up

last friday i got to help me niece, katie, get ready for her friends prom. she was asked only a week before the prom so she needed to find a dress in a hurry. she found a beautiful black and white gown that fit her perfect, no altering at all, not even the hem! that is my kind of dress.
on friday afternoon she and her sisters came over to help get her all dolled up. i did her hair and makeup while we all hung out and talked. i love these girls and am so proud to be a part of their lives. katie wanted to keep her hair and make up simple so we just curled it and put it half up. we tried going a little smoky with her eyes and the rest was simple make up. she looked beautiful and i had a great time helping her out. (not sure why these first pics are so small)

her date, justin. she was a pro at the boutonniere (thanks to YouTube)

they had a GREAT time hanging out with friends, getting a nice dinner and bowling. brings back fun memories. hard to believe it was over ten years i ago that i went to my proms. wow, im getting old!
