Yana didn't want anything for her birthday. Just a dress for Homecoming and to go to the dance. So, that is what she did. She bought a new dress w/ her birthday money along w/ a few other things to go with it. Dance started at 8 this evening. Goes till 11:30 and they were going to eat afterwards. 12:30 is her time to be home. So, I know you don't want to read a whole lot so thought I'd get to the pictures.
One of Yana's best friends came down just to do her hair. We LOVE this girl. We call her our "11th child." She practiced on Irina's hair and mine first before she did Yana's.
The classic "Mom, I told you not now!" picture. Have to have one of those you know.
Nice guy and great sport to put up with all the little kids wanting to ask ten thousand questions and look at his tie. Poor guy. Hey, he knows this is Chaos Manor as he lives a few doors down from us. Clearly, we did not think this through...a shot in the kitchen. It was dark outside though. We're learning.
Great sports these three letting me take pictures. You all know those teen shots are rare and typically, I don't take many of them and post them in respect for their privacy. However, it IS Homecoming tonight and I AM the Mom. LOL. It's my duty to take pictures of my kids finally dressed up.
Yana with her date. Though I've been told we are just friends mom. You other moms know the lecture you get if you dare make the assumption. LOL.
Yana with one of her friends. They've been friends for awhile now.
