Last night was Eleni's big night her first prom. I had to get off early Friday to take her for her nail appointment. She had a manicure and pedicure. Then Saturday up early to the beauty shop. My niece Nikki is a beautician and she had the lovely honor of curling Eleni's hair which took and hour and a half and a can of hairspray. Not really but it seemed liked it. It turned out gorgeous!

Then it was time for make-up!

Eleni is such a ham!

No she's not mad she's just being Eleni!

Now off to get dressed and add the final touches.

I insisted we each take a picture with her but we must color coordinate. None of us owned anything in dress color which by the way is called Mermaid. So I made everyone wear light blue. Jessica was dressed and changed for the picture just to satisfy me.

My girls are all grown up. I am so proud of them!
Eleni insisted on a picture with her baby Abby.

Eleni and her best friend Lindsay.

Here they all are ready to go. I am happy to say they all made it home safe.

My next post will hopefully be about moving into our new home. The move in date is set for June 1st if the bathroom is completed. They landlords are having the bathroom redone. It's taking longer than they originally thought. I will keep you posted. Once again thanks for sticking with me!

I had to drop back in before we leave and say hi and congratulations on getting moved in! I know you'll be very busy!

I'm so excited that you're finally in a place of your own! God is good! I know it's been a long journey, but better times are headed your way. I KNOW IT!

You can email me while I'm in China too! :)

Lots of love!

Hi Donna,
I've been reading your blog for a while now, but have never commented. I was so sorry to read on Tammy's blog that your husband had a massive heart attack. This should be such a happy time getting your own place :( I will keep Ray, you and the girls in my prayers.
