Hockey Boy goes to a ball.

We had a real treat this weekend in that Kim from 3 Peanuts and her family were in Dallas. She and I spent the afternoon together, and her family came to dinner tonight. I will post more on that later (I need to get some pictures from Kim).

Tonight Hockey Boy was attending the Junior Symphony Ball (along with 1699 other Dallas-area high school students). He was able to meet Kim and her family briefly before he left, and they provided valuable consultation on his hat, boots and bowtie.

The attire for the event was "Texas Tux" (basically a tuxedo shirt and jacket with jeans and cowboy boots). My mom gave Hockey Boy some really great cuff links for Christmas that say "Texas" and have the lone star on them. They were perfect for his outfit tonight.

I thought he looked so cute, and I LOVE the picture of Kate looking at him!

How fun to see two blogging buddies together! So cute. Your son is a looker, that's for sure! I love the idea of a Texas Tux! So cute... and maybe more fun to dress for than a traditional dance!

What a great outfit! It's a perfect mix for a guy Hockey Boy's age.

My boys went back and forth about going. Finally decided to opt out this year. I thought it was funny that their girlfriends were the deciding factor. My daughter went twice in high school and had such a great time.

I've never heard of "Texas Tux" before, but I must admit, I LIKE it!

Very cute! The look littel Kate is giving your son is priceless! Ice and snow all around in Kentucky, but it's slowly melting. Is Texas back to a regular routine?
