Banquet, tears and smiles

This past Saturday our church held a banquet for our youth. It's for ages 12 and up ( til married). Anyway, it was Katherine's first year to attend and boy was she excited. 
 I had told both my girls that this year instead of pouffy dresses we were going to stick to something a little more serviceable and something they could wear again to Sunday-go-to- meeting.( ummhmm yeah right!) they both plead for dresses that neither one will probably never wear again. Well I take that back, Angel will wear hers again for her sweet sixteen birthday party coming up in May.
 And hair? Again Angel is competent to do her own. Katherine? The struggles and toils and tears to get those blasted locks just right. Oh it was not a pretty sound that was coming from the Coleman's I'm a tellin ya. Finally their Daddy got them in the truck and took them out to the church and Mama sank wearily down to enjoy the peace and Quiet. And that my friends is how I spent my Saturday.

My three favorite people in the world.

Katherine and Kami

Today is my precious Daddy's birthday. We are going out to my Grandmothers tonight and help him celebrate with hamburgers and homemade vanilla cake with choclate icing.


  1. Merry your daughters look so pretty! And oh how familiar I am with the getting ready of a daughter...sometimes it is not pretty... But in the end all things work out. LOL Blessings to you,
    Amy Jo

  2. Thank you Amy Jo!:) somehow we made it through! I'm just trying to remember that they are not with us for long and one day I'll be wishing for a little girl to comb again. ( maybe not the the loud noise that comes with one though! L.O.L!

  3. They both look so sweet, this sounds like it was a love time. Happy Birthday to your dad!

  4. Whoo! Yes Amia I'm thinking that they had a grand time for sure. But I'm going to be very honest, I'm glad it only comes once a year, otherwise I'd be keeping Miss Clairol in stock!:)

  5. How wonderful they look. Keep bringing them up in the way of our Lord. I love it...
