I've been busy the last few days (and I've still been sick). My mom came into town on Thursday. She'll be staying with us for a week and a half. I have more family coming in later this week. All for Jake's graduation.
Friday night, my mom, Danielle, and I went to see Chorusline at the beautiful Buell Theater here in Denver. We first had dinner at the Cheesecake Factory. Although my mom and I had seen this show before, it was fun seeing it again and Danielle thoroughly enjoyed herself. It was a great evening.
Last night was Jake's prom. His group met here at our house for pictures and for the limo to pick them up. All the parents were here, too, to take their share of pictures.
First, this is how Jake asked his girlfriend, Hollee, to prom. If you don't know, girls nowadays want to be asked in some special and creative way. Since Jake works at Cold Stone, he handmade this ice cream cake for her and surprised her with it the next day. It was dessert after they went out to eat.
Jake and Hollee. They looked so nice together, matching colors and all.
The group. These four couples have all been together for some time. And although the Prom is a romantic time, they wanted to make their senior Prom more fun than romantic. This was evident by where they went to dinner and their after-prom event. They then came back and spent the rest of the wee morning hours crashed out on my couches. When they wake up, we'll have a big breakfast ready for them.
I'm glad Prom is over and I can concentrate on the next big event - graduation. Now all I have to do is finish cleaning my house, do some landscaping, and get through all the graduation festivities, which includes the ceremony and open house/party.
