more prom!

A few more shots to show the detail of the girl's dresses. :) Erin is in orange, Emily is in green, Hannah, Miranda and Stacey are the trio picture.

Captain Cook

So Sarah and I tried to be somewhat incognito as we walked around the perimeter of the dance floor. Some of our guy students were not overly excited to see their youth leaders at prom. We told them their parents were paying us big money to supervise and take notes. They didn't think we were so funny. Ha! We DID however get shots of all our youth kids there that night and they look AWESOME!! We're tempted now to do this for Wasilla's prom at the end of the month. Being school district employees pays off! Their prom was at the Captain Cook, a hotel in down town Anchorage. I recall having both my proms in our school gym. Interesting thing this year, Wasilla's is in the gym again but costs more than Colony's at the Captain Cook. Hmmmm, go figure! It was fun just to see the variety of dresses there. Seems to be the going fashion right now is sleek, form fitting, low/open backs. There were a few princess, big foof dresses, but the 80s hasn't made a full come back yet!

In all the CHS students there were, Dave Crozier, Nate VanNorwick, Jeremy Burris, Xiavier, Emily, Johanna, Erin, Elizabeth, Natalie, Stacey, Miranda and Hannah.
Picture explanation, the couple is Natalie and her boyfriend Xavier. To the right is Elizabeth and the group shot from left to right is me, Emily, Erin, Johanna, Miranda, Hannah, Stacey and Elizabeth.

Bacon bits!

While we were immersed in prom primping, the "Bacon bits," were great at entertaining themselves. When Morgan got tired of playing "sincess" with all her dolls she dove into wrestling with Drew and Gavin...taking off her "sincess" dress, tira, and shoes so she could be like the boys...shirtless. Really dresses just get in the way of flipping over couches and tackling brothers. She cracked me up!

Dan and Bri's wedding

Dan and Brianna (both junior youth leaders) were married Saturday afternoon. Their junior guys were the ushers. Cathy and Anna Winter were two of the bridesmaids along with Bri's cousins Jenny Lynn and Laura Beth and her older sister. Cathy was the first bridesmaid to enter and Amanda and I both did a double take. She looked absolutly stunning! Cathy is an all 'round amazing woman of character. She blows me away with her constant kindness, generosity, positive attitude and perseverence. For those who don't know her, you're missing out! This is was a big day for her in many ways.
Dan and Bri are two of the happiest people on the planet right now. They are a perfect match!


Saturday night was Colony's Jr/Sr. prom so Amanda did another beauty day at her house. Johanna, Erin and Elizabeth all came out to her house to get their hair and make-up done. Amanda is FANTASTIC at doing hair! She did all the "primping" and I brought the food to hold us over and of course take pictures!
That afternoon we went to another youth leader's wedding, Dan and Brianna, and then Sarah Novak and I drove in to Anchorage to the Captain Cook to get prom pics of our junior and senior girls and guys. We had a blast! They all looked BEAUTIFUL!!
