The Big Date...

This is our youngest son Tim...The photo above shows him just after he picked up his tux for the Homecoming dance at his High school on Saturday~


But before he can wear his tux he had to put on the Panther mascot suit and get the crowd all cheering for the Home team~!


Here he is all decked out and ready to go meet his date's parents~Corsage in hand~♥

While Tim was away, I set the table with my Grandmothers beautiful china. You might recognize the lighted fall decor~I took it off my mantel here in another room for tonight's special dinner. I can't believe how beautiful it looked with the lights in the room dimmed just a little...


Tim and his date waiting for dinner and for their good friend to arrive also...



Friend arrived, dinner is served~!


~The Happy Homecoming Couple~


This was a really big day for Tim, not only did he do all the things stated above BUT he also...(drum roll please) GOT HIS DRIVERS LICENSE~!!! I may not ever have to leave the house again, Tim keeps asking me if I need anything from the store, he'd go pick it up for me!


"Anything at all mom???" :)

  11. You should be so proud of your son and yourself. It really turned out lovely. The table is just beautiful. Your son is so cute as the mascot. Love that. He seems so grounded and such a nice young man. And his date is gorgeous. Wow.

    You have really done a great job raising him. Driving and asking his mother go get anything you want. Nice nice and nice.

  15. Hi Robin~
    What a sweet couple they make! I chuckled about him asking if you needed anything from the store and being so willing to grocery shop! That's great! :) (And I can't wait until our son can do that for us! Then again, on second thought, maybe not!)

    I hope you had a wonderful weekend! :)

  16. How fun to be the mascot!!! Put on that mask and dance around!!!!

    The couple looks VERY handsome!!!

  17. He is handsome!!Take advantage now of them wanting to go to the store because in a year you will get the whining and complaining "Do I have too?" LOL I was sneaky and always took advantage of it when my 3 boys received their license. Tell him congrats and the couple looked wonderful! have a blessed day.

  20. Hi Robin- I came across your comment on Jan's blog and saw that you were from Cheney. So, weird- I lived in Cheney back in 1970-1974. We are roughly the same age so I'm wondering if our parents knew each other? What is your maiden name? My parents are the VanWie's...Just curious!

  38. Hi Robin!

    I left you a comment yesterday, but it must not have gone through...I couldn't find it! Oh, well...try, try, again!

    Your son and his date make a great-looking couple. I am so impressed that you made dinner for them at your house! I've been told that's the new fad. My daughter?? It was a no-go. She just HAD to go to a restaurant. At least we didn't have to pay for her dinner!

    I really enjoyed your pictures! Thanks for sharing and have a glorious day!!
