USAA Holiday Prom!

Every year USAA throws a big Formal Holiday Party. It is a lot of fun. This year they had Chicago come. I was so excited. My good friend Amber Martin did my hair. She did an amzing job. She did it for last years party too, so I knew I was in good hands. Jamie Smith went shopping with me and helped me find my dress. It is so hard to find a formal dress that is modest! But we accomplished it. Although I have to say I had more fun picking out outfits for her to try on. So here are pictures of the top of my hair and the back. Thanks so much Amber!





Scott was so sweet and we had such a good time. Unfortunately our baby sitters (my brothers) had some trouble with Caden (they forgot to burp him so he wouldn't quit crying) so we only got to stay for the first two songs of Chicago. We knew it would take us about an hour to get home, so we left and went to dinner closer to our house. We still had a really good time. Although we missed our double dating friends, the Hofhiens, who were going to go with us. Their poor little one has RSV. Get better Tyler!

Last night my DH stayed up late reading blogs (well actually I just fell asleep early while putting my DD to bed) -- anyways, Dan was looking at our friends blogs. When he woke me up to prod me to my own bed, the one post he mentioned out of all the ones he had read was this one. So I had to come re-read it. We are sorry about your night ending early. Good pictures though. Christine, your hair is amazing!
