Oh my, both Makinsee and Aubree are GORGEOUS! And they both look so much like you. That prom dress is to-die-for. And such a happy ending to story that might-not-have-been.You are incredibly blessed to have such a wonderful family.
A great big ALOHAAAAA Brandi!!It's been too long girlfriend. You are a busy girl. I hope all is going well. I hear you are moving, so that is a big task all by itself and then to have to pack a house and move it across an ocean!! Yikes:(Oh young love. It's so nice your absolutely gorgeous daughter, Aubree (who looks EXACTLY like you BTW) had a happy ending to her prom story, which I have come to know as "Prom-a". Yes, we had Prom-a here and I am guessing it is probably more common than we realized. When my daughter was getting her hair done, the receptionist was telling me how ugly girls can be. They have had mean girls call pretending to be the person with the hair appointment saying they needed to cancel it just so the girl wouldn't look good for the prom. It just surprises me what length females will go to to destroy a day for someone else. It is despicable. My mind can't even think that way. Where do girls learn this stuff and where is their conscience to live with themselves with those kind of actions? Shame on the parents for raising them that way (some even encourage that kind of behavior) Look at the father of Aubree's first date seeing nothing wrong with not honoring your word. How do you expect the child to not think it is wrong when the parent doesn't think so?????? We encountered a lesson in honor as well. I don't get how you cannot honor your word. If you tell someone you have committed to something, you should follow through with it even if it is painful. No one wants to feel uncomfortable anymore, if it feels the least bit yucky, then run. That is the message that is sent and I don't agree with it in the least. People only seem to care about their own feelings and not those of others, especially when it is their actions that are affecting those others. I will have to fill you in on the details of our situation. These are all lessons we learn growing up. What doesn't kill you makes you stronger, so they say. So many lessons were learned by Aubree on her journey to the Prom. So glad you made her earn the money to go. I wonder how many kids wouldn't have wanted to go through with everything if their parents had paid for that ticket They always say you learn and grow the most through adversity. I'm sure your daughter learned a lot about herself (she's got to be proud of how she handled herself and the situation) and learned a great deal about others by the way they handled the situation. You hate to tell your kids that people will disappoint you along your journey on this thing called life. You don't need to tell them, sometimes people will just show you. Sometimes people surprise you too, in a good way, like the 2nd prom date that stepped in. She really got a great dose of life lessons all wrapped up into one event. I am proud to see how her "new" boy handled himself as well. Even though those darn proms DO cost a fortune, you can't put a price tag on all the great lessons she learned from that whole prom event.I'm sure you're glad that whole fiasco is over, It takes a HUGE chunk out of the parent as well. As you said the Lioness in you came out, you can't help but want to protect your young.I hope all is going well for Travis. I'm sure you're worrying about him too :)Good luck with the packing and moving. Keep me updated on everything with the move. Thanks for coming to say hello, your visits are always enjoyable!!Hope you're having a wonderful day!!Looking forward to your next visit :)XoXoGail
