her laugh.
her smile.
her hogging the bathroom.
her crooked pinkies.
her dancing.
her innocence.
her hugs.
her singing out of tune.
her beautiful singing out of tune.
her love for her "favorite" sister.
her only sister.
her stubbornness.
her love for the Monkees.
her living for today.
her love for strangers.
her love of "cute boys".
her child-like faith.
her life.
her grin.
that grin.
missing her.

This past May I had my 2nd prom photo session with a few of our senior girls. I had a really great time and the girls rocked some photos... I hope, if anything, that the girls felt as beautiful as they looked - correction: as they always look.

Christiana. sometimes "Tiana". Quite the looker.

Minoka. a Sri Lankan beauty.

Stephanie. stunning rocker chick. tats and all.

Kelly. timeless beauty.

Speaking of proms... At our big youth event, DNow, we had a Nerd Prom. Let me just say... it was the sweetest dance event I have ever been at. Limbo. 80's rock. nerd prom queen and king. prince and princess. meatloaf. the worm and a dance-off.

jump on it.

king & queen.

prince & princess. sweet headgear.

Luau "photo-booth"

my "handsome" date.
so much better than the real prom.

I like the name Rayne.

I once told Darryl I thought it would be a cute name for a girl.
He's response; "Do you want our child to be a stripper?!"

Maybe just as a middle name?
