An Evening in Paris

Gwen went to the prom with Alexander again this year. Both of them seemed to have more fun than they did last time, possibly because they are older. See how much more grown up my baby looks since the last prom!

They visited the Eiffel Tower

And relaxed at a French cafe

Then they hit the dance floor

About halfway through, the DJ’s turned on the disco lights. Once Gwen saw them flickering across the ceiling she wouldn’t look at anything else.

Disco lights!

Her necklace is a little diamond pendant that my grandmother gave me years ago. I’m not that into jewelry (except earrings) but putting this piece on her was kind of thrilling. It is one of those things I never expected to do but got to anyway!

    It certainly looks like Gwen and Alexander had a great time. Perhaps Sarah did too! hehee.
    They both look lovely.

    Your description of the moment with the necklace is priceless. These are the memories in every mother’s life. They look beautiful. I remember my first prom — I felt stiff and funny in ‘fancy’ clothes — guess I never was meant to be a ‘belle.’ They look a lot more relaxed than I was, and the corsage and boutonnière are perfect.

    PS, I like disco lights too. Linda

    Gwen is beautiful! I love that the mitts are being used again, her precious little hands are lovely.
