All grown up and beautiful for the prom!!!!

Congratulations again Ashley!  I'm so proud of you!

Lots of love,
big sister,

  1. Congratulations to Ashley!

    But I now feel old. I almost named my daughter Ashley and she's (gulp) a sophomore now. I swear I just graduated last year. What happened?

  2. What an awesome tribute!!

    Congratulations Ashley!!

  3. What a gorgeous sister you have!!! Congratulations to her!!!!

  4. Aw...congrats to Ashley! Those pics made me smile!

  5. Thanks kiki :) This was very sweet of you, and it's just what i needed to get me EXTRA pumped for graduating! love you lots <3

  6. Congrats Ashley! What a lovely journey through photos.

  7. Awww, so cute. I hope that lampshade picture is not a glimpse into college life.:o

  8. The pic you didn't know where you were was Lenior Ryane Football game... great job on the history and blog.. such sweet girls...


  9. Awww, what a sweet post! I have two sisters also and we're all extremely close. I totally understand the overwhelming love and pride you feel for Ashley. Congrats to her on graduating!!

  10. I just wanted to echo what everyone else already said: what a fantastic tribute through pictures. One of my sons had that same Barney, although neither one probably wants me to spend too much time trying to remember which one (my wife would know!).
    Very, very nice. Congratulations to Sis.

  11. That’s freaking awesome… congrats on being a successful parent, that’s one major accomplishment down.

  12. Congrats to her! I know what it's like to watch your baby sister grow up. What a wonderful day for all of you.
