"Women of God can never be like women of the world. The world has enough women who are tough; we need women who are tender. There are enough women who are coarse; we need women who are kind... We have enough women of fame and fortune; we need more women of faith." -- Margaret D. Nadauld

Stay Home Little Girl!

Buttercup's last official Homecoming Dance.

Sometimes it's great being a teenager, isn't it?
*A cute, nice boy that you don't know very well asks you out and treats you like a queen....
* ... which means you have made a new friend.
* You get to hang out with friends, acting silly and having a great time.
* You get to put on sparkly make-up and have someone help you have a pretty hair-do.
* You get to wear a dress that makes you look like a princess and jewels to match.
* Dancing the night away doesn't kill you.

Noni and Buttercup in their beautiful dresses.

(Noni rented hers and Buttercup wore the same dress she wore to the Valentine dress... way to save $$ girls!!)

Buttercup's date, Mass, is 10.5 inches taller than she is.
(That's Inigo's foot in the photo. Dang him!)

Hey, Mass, why don't you sit down! That's better!

I love that Buttercup can stand on the fireplace hearth and she's still not as tall as Mass!!

******************** Since Buttercup was so gorgeous, we thought it would be a fun time to take our September family picture. I think it would have turned out okay, except I remembered after the pic was taken that I forgot to put make-up on!! Augh!

Buttercup looks awesome!! It would be so weird to be with someone that tall!! I mean, look at Ray, NOT 10 inches tall than me, but I don't care. Hope she had the most wonderful time!

You pull off the no-makeup look, don't worry about it.
