Lacey's First Dance!!!

Okay, so I never knew how hard it would be to watch your little girl grow into a woman, but that is EXACTLY what is happening right before my eyes. I am sure you all remember my little girl, the cute little short thing with the dark blonde hair and the dimples, right? Well, I am having to face the fact that she is no longer a little girl, but has grown into a beautiful young woman. Last Saturday night was her first dance, and I promise you it took all I had to keep from crying when I dropped her and her DATE... omg, did I just write that?.... off at the dance. She looked absolutely beautiful and I thank God that he put her in my life. I don't know what I would do without this kid. I just wanted to share a bit of her first dance with you guys. Thanks for being a part of our life, and we love you!

My Beautiful, Beautiful Girl... Could I have possibly helped to make her?

Ohhh Kim, she is so pretty. Listen I hate to break this to you, but you will look back and think that first dance was nothing...wait till she gets married! I could not even help Janice get ready, because every time I was in the room with her I started crying and then she started. It wasn't because I wasn't happy for her, I definitely was. I knew Clint loved Janice and I knew she loved him. My tears came because she wasn't my baby anymore, suddenly I had to share her with someone else. I wasn't number one anymore, and that is the way it should be, but it doesn't mean it is easy. Enjoy your daughter, but if you are close, that will never change! Speaking from experience!
