Welcome to the beginning of another week and our "Happy Monday" postings. This week I chose a big occasion on Lucy's social calender. Her Year 12 school ball. This was held on Saturday evening.The theme this year was "Fire and Ice" with the hall at Muresk suitably decked out for the students. Preparations began a few weeks back when Lucy and Bonnie took off to the city for a days shopping. At only the second shop they managed to find a dress then the hunt was on for matching shoes bag earrings and bracelet and make up. I think they found just the right dress and accessories.Early on Saturday Bonnie came and gave Lucy a spray tan then came back later on in the day to do the hair and make up. Bonnie's friend Courtney came and helped pin up Lucy's hair after Bonnie had curled it. If you are wondering what Ian and I did to help get Lucy ready we washed Bonnie's car to perfection as this was how Lucy and her friend Sharelle were getting to the ball.
We had lots of photo's taken out the back before everyone met at the local park for some more photo's.
After the photo shoot at Bernard Park Bonnie and Courtney drove Lucy and Sharelle out to the ball which was being held at the Muresk Campus. On the way they had there own "rural" photo shoot and met up with David and Sheri who were coming home for the night and to see Lucy all dressed to the nines. Sharelle's Mum made her dress and finished it the day before. I think she did a wonderful job on it.
I actually liked these photo's a heap more than the ones that were taken in the local park. They have a lot more character about them.
Here are Lucy and Sharelle who is the head girl this year entering the ball. I think it is about the only photo that Lucy and Sharelle are holding there clutches. Lucy had a great time dancing the night away and said it was great fun. David and Sheri drove out to pick Lucy up when the ball finished at 11.30pm. I waited up to see that all went OK and when they all arrived back home Lucy was hungry so they drove to Macca's to get a snack at midnight. Lucy slept in until just after midday then had another sleep later on. All that dancing must have worn her legs out. David and Sheri were up with the sun and had to drive back to the city early because David had to start work at 9.00am. Thank you to Bonnie Courtney David and Sheri for all your help in making Lucy's Year 12 Ball a wonderful time to remember.
Happy Monday to everyone.
