She LIVES!

Almost 12 hours after getting home from the after-Prom party, the princess is UP. I swear she fell asleep mid-sentence early this morning. (I picked her up around 4:30.) I staggered into the kitchen for coffee about 11:30, put the dogs out and back in to guard my Sleeping Beauty.

Shhhh!

Shhhh!

Princess Ysabela enjoyed a “breakfast” of waffles and bacon and savored the memory of choosing her new Blu-ray disc player as a prize at the end of the after-Prom party. I would like to thank all the parents and community members who worked so many hours to make the party a roaring success. As far as I know, the Bronco Boosters coordinated the event.

a great prize!

a great prize!
