Both of my high school girls got all dolled up and went to Snowball this year. Snowball is our town's winter formal, it is more important than Prom. The kids wear formal gowns and tuxedos, but they do not dress formal for Prom. Let me tell you that finding a formal/prom gown in December proves to be one of the most difficult and most expensive activities on earth. We have plans to purchase next years dresses this year as soon as Prom season is over. It is always held the weekend before the kids start school after Christmas break. They both looked pretty darn amazing if I do say so myself!
