A formal night out

Well, here she is, as promised. Gorgeous youngest grand daughter in her formal dress.
Now I hope you are not going to be bored because this post is mostly pre formal photo's.

Lovely Chloe...
I took my little mother over to see Chloe in all her finery 
a couple of hours before she was due to go out.
It was a bitterly cold  night and the wind was blowing a gale
so we said we would take the dress to her rather than her come over for it.

with her Dad...
She had her makeup done by a friend of her mother 
and her hair done by another friend who is a hairdresser.
Sometimes we older people come in handy...
especially when it comes to contacts.

her beau...
They went over to her boyfriends' home and their group left from there.
The boys looking dapper in their suits, tuxes or whatever they wore, 
I'm out of touch these days, and of course the girls were gorgeous.

and her friends
Photo's were taken by all and sundry,
some on cell phones so not quite as clear as they could have been.
But still a nice record. 
Then it was into another friends' Jeep Cherokee 
to be chauffeured to the ball in style.

the hairdo
An evening of 
 dinner, dessert and dancing.
What more could you ask for?

And that's it for now.
See you same time, same place,
