The after party was wonderful. Lor's table, the one that we got to decorate...each one of the families hosting the party decorated a table for their graduate...was cute as could be and there was dancing and food and we rolled in our backdoor about half past midnight. Nothing would do but for Lor to open all of the graduation gifts she received at the party and in her words, it was "better than Christmas" and monogram heaven to boot. The girl gets it honest from me....we LOVE anything with our monogram on it and our friends did not disappoint.
Lorelai was belle of the ball last night. I couldn't help but take notice of the grand time that all of the teenagers had dancing and singing and talking. And they did it without a drop of alcohol, or drugs... not a single word of profanity...everybody was appropriately dressed (i.e. nobody was half naked). I only saw one couple dance inappropriately for a very brief moment and they were not "our kids." A couple of photographs below...one of Lor and Hank having fun dancing our state dance, the shag, to one of our favorite tunes, Carolina Girls, Best in the World! The other is of Lor on her tippy toes dancing with her friend J.R., the gentleman from prom number one.
Off now to Legare's big day, after which we'll be heading out on Lor's senior cruise for a few days.
Look for a big update in about a week.
