Busy, Busy Day Today :)

This morning started early with a family breakfast.  This was Bailey's Jr. Prom so she had big plans of being gone for most of the day and all night long.  I wanted to sneak in some family time before she was off and running. 

Sorry about the glare on my glasses...uuugghh!

Not too bad of a snap-shot of the 5 of us.

After breakfast we went shopping for summer clothes and picked up a few bags of mulch from the good ol' Walmart garden center.
This, I'm embarrassed to say is our front VERY neglected flower bed.  We've let it go wild ever since last summer and it looked a mess. 
How do you like them- there dandelions? LOL
Poor Addison and her friend Julie got suckered into pulling weeds.  I was amazed that they seemed to be having fun doing it.  Usually around our house pulling weeds means you are in trouble.  I helped too and together we managed to make some progress.

Here are the newly potted flowers and mulch.  Nothing grows in this part of the yard ...NEVER HAS THE ENTIRE 17 YEARS WE'VE LIVED HERE...So, if you want anything to grow basically, it has to be in pots.
I still need a fresh coat of white paint on the patio set but that's for another day. 

We love sitting out here when the kids play basketball late at night.  It's great!

After fixing the front yard, Bailey's cousin, Jojo, helped Bailey dress for her prom. 
This is Bailey and her (friend date) Aaron.  He's such a sweet guy and they looked great all decked out.
They went out to dinner at a place called "715" (yeah, that's the name of the place.  The food is not that great but the whole place is lit by candle light and it's quite an experience to eat there. ) Then, they walked the down town in Lawrene and finally went to the prom. 
This is my favorite picture.  The two of them have so much fun together.

We had to take some funny pics too.  Poor Aaron!!
She was brushing off his pants...not spanking him. lol

I had to tease her that she looked like she was proposing to him in this shot.  hahaha

Aaron actually opened the door for Bailey but we thought it would be great to take a picture of her doing it for him instead.  LOL

This was them being announced and going into the prom.

I'm sure they are going to have a wonderful time.  We just couldn't be more proud of our oldest, baby girl!

Bailey... You look BEAUTIFUL!

You have a beautiful family sweetie! This Ozark farm chick loved seein' the prom pics...brought back memories, mine would finally get agitated with me 'cause I wanted so many pics!

The yard work shows, kudos to the girls!!! The weeds have just gone wild this's a real jungle out there even if I did go out early this year and clean out all my beds.

God bless ya'll and have a wonderfully blessed day from the happy hills and hollers of the Missouri Ponderosa!!!
