Homecoming 2010



Many of you have shared recent pictures of your children and/or grandchildren enjoying their school's Homecoming... WELL--not to be outdone,   I have some photos to share today of my oldest grandlove who is 16  (17 in November) and lives with her family in Texas.  


This gorgeous young lady was the first girl to be born in my family (I had 2 brothers and 3 sons) ---so you can only imagine how excited I was when she was born.   It was so much fun buying things for a little girl!!!!  The only problem is that she has grown up much too fast...  I cannot believe that she is almost ready for college... Yipes!!!!


Today,  I will share pictures of "BA" (the name I'll call her) enjoying her "Homecoming" week at her high school with her boyfriend,  "C".   Above is a picture of the two of them at school during Homecoming week.   Below are more photos. 








This is also a neat photo of BA and C at school....   See????  George and I aren't the only ones who wear matching shirts!!!!!! ha ha.....   Aren't they just the cutest couple?   








Homecoming night is here ---and BA and C are all 'cleaned up' for the big dance...  All I can say is WOW....   I know that I'm the grandmother and supposed to say wonderful things about my grandloves. But truly, this granddaughter is absolutely the most beautiful young lady in the world!!!!  (I take no credit for her beauty....  She gets it from her gorgeous Mom --and from my handsome son.)








In the photo above this one,  BA is pinning a boutonniere on C... And in this photo,  C is putting a beautiful corsage on BA.  Isn't her dress gorgeous?








 Here is a great picture of BA  with little sister, BE  (who is 13).  Yes,  this son of mine (middle one--out of my 3) and his wife are raising two beautiful daughters...  M and L  will be going through the same thing over the next few years with BE.  GEESH---these two girls have just grown up so fast!!!!  I cannot believe it myself...  


Wish I lived closer and could see these grandloves more often.  George and I went to Texas last year to see both girls play softball (they are both excellent players) --and it rained the entire time we were there...   Oh Well--it was fun,  just being with them.








These last two pictures are my favorite ones,  of the gorgeous couple ready for the big dance.  I love to see young people dress up these days ---because it doesn't happen very often.  Seeing them both looking so fabulous is just wonderful!!!








And this one is my VERY favorite picture.  I introduce you to a gorgeous couple.  Can't you see me smiling from ear to ear?????   I am a very very proud Grandmother--as you can tell.   AND ---I want you to know that this young lady is not only pretty.   She's smart and she's a really great gal in all respects... My son and daughter-in-law have done a fabulous job of raising their two daughters...  God Bless them ALL.


Hugs,

P.S.  We didn't make it to the Smokies yesterday as we had planned..  We had a cloudy day here--so we decided to wait until the sun comes back out!!!!  There was rain all around us most of the day --but we only got a TINY TRACE (not even enough for a measure in the rain gauge)...  Hopefully,  today may give us another chance!!!   Do a Rain Dance for us!!!!  Thanks!

Both your granddaughters are lovely Betsy. I enjoyed these pictures so much. BA and C look stunning all dressed up for Homecoming. Her dress is really gorgeous. I also love their matching t-shirts just as I enjoy your and George's matching shirts on your hiking trips. Thanks for sharing these sweet pictures. I wish you and George a great day with lots of rain!

Jane said...

Beautiful girls. And I love the dress!

Your grandlove and B are beautiful! It is exciting to see them all sparkles and smiles ~ for any occassion! So will she go to college in tx? I know texans dont like to leave their great state LOL
I will do a quick rain dance for you and us as well! thankfully I get to go make some money today at a friends dental lab

A Brit in Tennessee said...

Your granddaughters are just so pretty Betsy, I couldn't help but notice they have your award winning smile ;)
Yes, they grow up so fast, mine are now in college, I hardly see them despite living one mile down the road, we all go in different directions everyday, or so it seems.
We have rain again today, I'll shoo it east !

Darla said...

Matching shirts? I did not know that was genetic, lol. Too cute here. I love, love that dress!!

NENSA MOON said...

wOWW.... Betsy, I'm not surprised you're very proud of your loved granddaughter... She's so pretty and seemed smart as well as her boyfriend...
Yeah I think so... they're a gorgeous couple..
I also love seeing those pictures, esp.. when they dress up to the dance party.

Thanks so much for sharing with us!
I'm glad could read your post!
hugs,

They got your eyes, Betsy.

You have beautiful granddaughters. Bet you really spoil them when you visit. Our children and grandchildren grow up so fast. I too am separated by many miles from my only son and his family. It has been so hard watching my grandson grow up in pictures and only being able to hug and kiss him once or twice a year. I think they seem to grow faster when we don't see them as often. Thanks for sharing the pictures.

I smiled as i read this post.There is something so special about a Grandma and her Granddaughter.You have every right to be VERY proud of her and her sister.
This is a beautiful couple.
Blessings,Ruth

Catherine said...

And proud you should be ~ very sweet!

We don't have "Homecoming" in Saskatchewan ~ I don't even really know what that means! :)

But they sure look grown up!

Daisy said...

Your granddaughters are both beautiful, Betsy! It is fun seeing the kids get all dressed up. I hope they had a wonderful time at the dance. :-)

Dorothy said...

Betsy, you have beautiful grand-daughters! BA and C make a cute couple.
We got .23 of an inch of rain yesterday. That's not much, but enough to settle the dust. We are thankful.
Maybe when the sun comes out the foliage will be more colorful.

Susie said...

They are a cute little couple Betsy!

Both granddaughters are adorable. The younger reminds me of you.

Aunt Amelia's Attic said...

Beautiful!!!

So nice that you can share these times, via photos. Even if you're not living close by.

Btw, do you 'skype'? Whatever that computer program is, which allows voice and visual communication, between laptops? Our Grand daughter installed it on her 'Pop's' laptop, before going to college.

It's a new form of the old thing, I used to do... With a separate web cam. Visual and voice communication. Had to do it that way, with my old iMac. :-) It was a fad, and I did it, and stopped. Now it's built into laptops! :-)

Some of our family members have it, but not all. Just saying. :-)

Sharon said...

Good Morning Betsy!
We did get a little rain, but it was mostly noise, maybe we will get some more today!
The children look so sweet, all dressed and something special to go to! Both Granddaughters are so pretty!
My Grandkids range from 4 to 23, and there's a bunch! I have one Great Grand now too.
Well, on to a (hopefully) rainy day, have a good one!

JKoenig said...

Wow! Two beautiful granddaughters....and I think I saw their grandma's smile! I'm happy for you.

The Incredible Woody said...

She is beautiful! And those eyes!! Love that she and her boyfriend were wearing matching shirts too:)

My brother's company is slated to start an update of the irrigation on one of the golf courses up your way. Not sure which one but if your course starts getting dug up, it's us:)

Small City Scenes said...

A beautiful G-daughter she is Betsy. They make a very handsome couple.
Time does go by so very fast. MB

Lana said...

What happy beautiful faces! Have you ever considered trying to Skype? I think that would be a must for long distance families.

Hey we are so dry here too. Burn restrictions are out, and no rain in sight until may next week when Hurricane ??? might bring some our way. Hope he/she dumps some on you too, but not too much and not all at once! We are such picky creatures aren't we. I bet the Good Lord just wants to smack us sometimes with all our specif wants and needs! ;-)

Ginny said...

Well about TIME that you start putting stuff like this on your blog!! Two times in about a month now, good for you! I just love seeing bloggers post friends and family, because you feel you know them better when they invite you to all their outings and visits. You and I already know each other pretty well, but still it is so cool to be seeing more of your family. I remember when you posted your sons quite a while ago, too. Oh, Betsy, she is just a DOLL, why have you been hiding her?? So lovely, I know how proud you must be! I want to grab her and give her a big hug and kiss. She is truly beautiful, and she has a radiance from within. BA and C make an adorable couple, and the sweatshirts crack me up! Is she Little Betsy? Her silver gown is just so refined, yet beautiful and appropriate, just perfect!

Tricia said...

Betsy, she's beautiful! Her & 'C' make an excellent looking couple too! I love their matching Homecoming attire!

KathyA said...

Absolutely beautiful grand daughter!!

From the Kitchen said...

Obviously you are completely biased--rightly so because they are gorgeous girls and the beau is quite handsome.

We are having some rain here today and have decided to go see "Secretariat".

Best,
Bonnie

nanny said...

Your granddaughters are both beautiful!

They do make a darling couple...great pictures!

It is so tough to live far away from family.....I am in TX this week visiting...dreading going home, I'll miss the hugs and kisses. Jump over to my daughters blog....solarpoweredwoman.blogspot.com and look at last post of how she is puckering now...so sweet!

Neal said...

I can't imagine you spoiling them. :)

They are beautiful.

Sey said...

The couple are gorgeous. I love the dress. It's so unique!

Valerie said...

What a beautiful couple! Hope they had a lot of fun at the dance.

I love to hear folks brag on their kin folk! just goes to show the LOVE that makes the world go round and round!

Thanks for sharing their great photos!

Together We Save said...

She is beautiful and I love that dress.... looks like by the different pictures they have as much fun at homecoming as my kids do. I really wish we had a dance though.

Pat Tillett said...

Nice photos that will provide memories forever...

Marydon said...

G'day Betsy ~ The last picture is my favorite also of this gorgeous couple. Your kid-lings are beautiful!

Adorable kids,adorable eyes, and whoo hoo! Aren't grandkids the best?!!!!

Busy Bee Suz said...

Betsy, both of your granddaughters are just GORGEOUS. But of course you knew this...
Love the couples photos...they are just darling together.
I hope she had a fun and memorable night!!!

LV said...

Glad you joined the club for showing off our grand and great grand children. We all do it and I love seeing others sharing theirs as well. One thing for sure, there is nothing wrong with these two. She is a very pretty girl that anyone would be proud of.

Karin said...

Just gorgeous! What a special occasion and beautiful memories made! So glad you're sharing these photos of very special people in your life! Blessings!

Carletta said...

Hi Betsy,
I've just some a few minutes looking back at your last few posts. Lovely fall color. In the past four days you've experienced the same as me - color changing quickly. There's a big difference in the tree behind your house. :)
Now, the lovely couple in this post - cute, cute, cute!!
Lovely dress and lovely smiles!
Grandmas have a right to brag - I know - being one myself. :)

Fred Alton said...

You have braggin' rights! The grand-daughters are beautiful indeed! I also like to see young people dress up occasionally. ☻

Thoughtfully blended hearts said...

What a beautiful young lady...and her friend is "one cool Dude"...great photos Betsy!!!

wildlifewatcher said...

Hi Betsy, I guessed your granddaughter lived in TX just from seeing that first photograph of the home coming with her having "Mums". TX football homecoming games have a tradition of the girls and ladies making or purchasing natural or artificial mum corsages with lots of ribbons and charms attached. Very elaborate is the rule. Have a great day!

Terra said...

Your pride and delight in your granddaughter is sweet to read about, and she and her date are so cute.

Diane said...

Beautiful girls Betsy, cute guy, too. Gorgeous dress, too. Diane

carolina nana said...

Gorgeous youngsters I know you are so proud !
Our rain last night was short lived and today we are having wind and sun again so the rain was no help.
It'll rain when God says so and we'll just have to be patient.
Have a blessed tomorrow
Marilyn

SquirrelQueen said...

Well I would say you have every right to be a proud grandma, both of your granddaughters are beautiful. BA and C make a very handsome couple. I love her dress.

Hope you get some rain very soon.

Pedaling said...

I loved seeing this beautiful grand-daughter---what fun times. and yes her dress is the bomb!

Ida said...

She's so beautiful! And her dress is gorgeous!! (((Ida)))

Mary said...

What a beautiful young couple. I can see a resemblance to you in her face.

The Farmer's Daughter said...

What beautiful granddaughters! And such a cute couple, I hope they had just as fantastic a time as they looked! The dress is stunning. ~Cheryl

Janie said...

You have two beautiful grandloves, Betsy.
And seeing the young couple all dressed up is a lot of fun. BA has a gorgeous dress.

Joy said...

She is such a pretty girl and looked gorgeous for her homecoming dance. Those mums are crazy aren't they?

misslynda said...

I like that expression - - - grandlove. The girls are both BEAUTIFUL and that boyfriend is quite adorable, too. They definitely look very happy with each other's company. Thanks for sharing with us.
