I wish I'd taken pictures of the process.

It was fun to watch Savannah help Absa get ready for homecoming this afternoon. From the hairdo, with the braid sweeping from front to back to the beaded headband (none of which I thought to capture on film!), to the makeup, painted nails and fancy clothes, Absa was all dolled up and ready to go. She wore a beautiful dress that her aunt made and that made the long trip from Senegal tucked safely away in Absa's relatively small suitcase. (You wouldn't believe the amazing clothes she keeps pulling from that little thing!)

Absa was going to dinner and the dance with a big group of friends tonight. I hope she's having a great time!
