So we shipped her off to her settled...talked to her daily of the phone, and still, your minding your own business and out of now where...she shows up.
Summer hitched a ride to Arizona, (not a short trip) just to spend the weekend.
She and Jessica took the opportunity to do what they do best...take pictures of themselves...

Play with their horses...

try to look seductive (came out a little pathetic)...
Jump for joy that they have the best Mom...

and morn the loss of having to split up their clothes, leaving them with "NOTHING" to wear!

As my family shrinks, and comes and goes, its moments like this that make me smile.

So my last daughter has joined the ranks of school dance history. Jessica as you know from a previous post was asked to homecoming. The theme... "A Night Under The Big Top", whatever happened to "Magic under the Sea", "Time in a Bottle", a circus, seriously...whatever, she went and had a great time.

After the afternoon conference session, he came picked her up and they went and got pedicures...I know, sounds kinda weird...but secretly how many of us girls wish our man would whisk us off to have our toes pampered and painted...and join in the fun! I won't tell you who's toes were blue and who's were pink...Its a secret!
I think this young man is already learning the way to a girls heart! Then he, knowing the way to the parents hearts (or just a good kid) went to Priesthood session, giving Jessica time to primp and curl (or mom to curl).

then picked her up for dinner, the dance and then pie. Jessica only pretended to pin on the boutonniere...all my daughters are wimps and mom ends up doing it.
His mom made her corsage and it was beautiful

Aren't they cute!
