Sophia wanted to hold onto the lipstick. they have this thing where if she wants something Mikayla asks her to promise to take care of it & Sophia says “pinky promise” & then they shake pinkies, it is too cute. Sophia pinky promised & then about 8:00 that night Sophia came out of her room with that lipstick all over her face & hands & IN her mouth. we need to work on our “pinky promises”…

of course we had to get some pics with Jalyn, these two have been friends for almost 9 years now & they truly are like sisters. Mikayla’s friend Jen came over with her boyfriend for a few pics too…

so yah, first time going with a date. first time pinning a flower on her date. first time getting a corsage from her date. first time introducing a boy to her mom.

she was nervous, he was nervous & it was about the cutest thing I have ever seen. the only thing missing was shane, he would have loved to have been there for this moment.

they were all so excited.

everyone went inside for some pizza & Gabe had put on his letter jacket I asked him & mik to go back outside for a few more photos. it was getting pretty chilly & Gabe gave his coat to Mikayla (after he was complaining about how cold it was & mik & I were giving him crap. ha)

but still, it was the sweetest thing…

i feel like i could write 1,000 words about this night & the weeks leading up to this night. but i won’t. i will just say that i am so happy that Mikayla & her friends had such a great time. when it comes right down to it they are a great group of young adults. through the days leading up to this Mikayla & i had some great conversations that i know i will always remember & i hope that she does too.

i know that she will remember these times for the rest of her life & it makes me so grateful that she will have these great memories.

love you mik.
