I guess an update is needed!


I don’t know where the month of January went!  Seriously.  It just flew by!  Thanks for all of the kinds words, thoughts, and hugs on my previous post about my sister-in-law Anne! Sooooo appreciated!

So, what did we do in January?  Let’s see.  The two biggest things were probably Winter Formal for both kids, and Tyson and I took a football recruiting trip to two schools in California.

Today’s post will be a Winter Formal recap!  Ü  Since this dance was a “girl’s choice” dance, Madi was very excited!  She and her friends have been talking and planning for months about who they were going to ask to the dance.  Madi’s plan from the beginning, had been to ask a “friend”….someone she could have a ton of fun with.  Even though she had her eye on a few boys she was crushing on….she didn’t want any drama or tension, or awkwardness at the dance.  She wanted to relax, have fun, and dance.  So, the boy she chose to ask is named KK….and he is hilarious!  The minute he got into our car, he has us laughing.  I drove Madi and her friend to pick up their dates, and the other couple, didn’t say a word to each other!  LOL!  When KK got in the car, he had everybody talking. 

On of the things I love most about having a daughter in high school, is that we get to shop for dresses and accessories  for dances together!  We made a day of it with another friend and her Mom…..stopping for lunch along the way, at the new Cheesecake Factory that recently opened. 

It is fun to see the difference between Madi and Tyson and their approach to getting ready for the dances.  The search for the perfect dress, shoes and accessories, deciding on the right hairdo, making sure your toenails are painted, getting your brows waxed, etc.  It quite the production! LOL!  All Tyson had to do was wait until his date chose a dress and find a shirt and tie that matched!  On the day of the formal, Tyson had a full day, which included a basketball game, before throwing his clothes on and heading to get his date.  Madi spent ALL DAY getting ready!  We loved it though!  It was fun!  Here are a few shots of Madi and KK:

Tyson’s date for the dance was his partner in Dance Concert last year…Ellie.  She is a DOLL!

The kids both had a great time!  I know T is sad that this was his last Winter Formal, but I know Madi is excited that she has 3 years left! LOL

    Oh what fun! I bet Madi was so excited to be a part of all the fun and hoopla that Tyson has got to be a part of for the last 4 years. So cool! Wow, I’m amazed at how time has flown…I can’t believe Tyson will be graduating this year. AMAZING! They both look beautiful!
