Matt and I who are just as happy at home in our pajamas on a Saturday night don't get all dressed up and go to a ball for just anyone. But...we will for someone special and especially our nephew who makes us oh so proud. Reid was chosen to be an escort at this year's charity ball in Brookhaven...it is an honor received your sophomore year of college.
These three best friends all went a different way after high school, but it sure was fun to walk into the room and see the 3 of them sitting in the corner together just talking/catching up with each other.
Nanna probably hates an event like this more than anyone in the family...but...she'll do just about anything for her grandchildren.
Parenting is hard so they may not realize it or think it but from the outside looking in, I think God has truly blessed Brad and Paula with the best boys!!!
These two live together in Starkville, and I know many days they want to kill each other...but...deep down you can tell they really do love each other!!!
I've watched this kid do so many great things throughout his years, and I'm honored to be able to call him my nephew...
He continues to make us proud!!!
I'm thankful for this guy who never says a word when I say we have another event to attend for someone in my family...he always goes with the biggest smile on his face!!!
And to think...these two will be getting married a year from now!!!
I love any chance I get to see my cousin...
She had a hard job as she was chairman of the ball, but she did great!!! She has a love for volunteer work like no other person I know.
And here is our favorite escort, Reid...
Carrie's son, John, was a train carrier for the king so we were excited to get to see him too!!!
After the court is presented the first dance is with your mom or dad...
We watched our favorites dance, ate dinner, and then we headed out. I had dreaded it all week, but honestly, once I got there I enjoyed myself and was so glad we went.
