Prom 2009

OK, I know you are all wondering why it was necessary to go to the airport to pick up Hannah's date. Back in those sweet days I was talking about in my last post, we lived in Houston TX and spent a great deal of time with some wonderful people. We all went to church together, several of us worked together at a local Mother's Day Out program, we vacationed together. Well, you get the picture. We were always together. We were very, very close. Then we moved and, as is too many times the case sadly, we grew apart.

Enter the world of technology. What with internet and unlimited text messages our kids reconnected. One thing led to another and here we were on our way to the airport to pick up "her date" for Prom. They were very close to inseparable when they were young, but have not seen each other since kindergarten graduation (or there about).

Check out these cuties. Hannah and Aaron are right next to each other. They always were. This was taken at Big Bend National Park on spring break when they were either 4 or 5. I can't seem to remember the year. (Old age does that, you know!!) The other cutie is Josh. He and Aaron are still good friends.

And here they are 11 or 12 years later. Senior Prom.
It was such a fun weekend and it ended way too quickly. The only thing that could have made it better would have been if his mom, dad and sister could have made the trip also. Oh well, sounds like another good excuse to visit Houston again!!!

Thanks for stopping by!!
Happy Quilting!!
