My mother was selected as the 2009-2010 Logan County Belle. Each county chooses a Belle to represent the state for a year at things like parades and festivals. This year, they chose mom!

Isn't she pretty?

Awww, man, she's lovely. :)

Great shots, and thanks so much for sharing them here.

Thanks! :)

Mom didn't go to her prom, and she and Dad had a very small wedding. So she is having such great fun with this!

Ha! How fun! Hope she's enjoying herself.

wonderful pics!

Ha! How fun! Hope she's enjoying herself.

She really is. She's got the whole shebang--a black battenburg lace parasol, a fan, fingerless gloves, pantaloons, a hoop for that skirt and everything.

wonderful pics!

Thanks! I agree! :)

That's so cool!

She looks great, love the outfit - so glad she went the whole hog :)

How lovely--and how I admire Logan County for realizing that a scantily clad teenager is nowhere near as lovely as a woman happy in her own skin.

Love the costumery, too. I wish there were places I could go dressed like that.

Maryn, outclassed

What a cool deal! Congrats to your beautiful mom and kudos to the state for such a wonderful event.

Thanks everybody! I really am proud, although I am sure none of you noticed. :D

Maryn, I can agree with your statement about the scantily clad teenagers, but this is a special event. Only ladies who are over 70 years of age can be nominated. (Can you believe she is 71?!)

I wrote her bio because she was terrified of doing that. Unfortunately, the newspaper is retooling it to make it sound like an interview. Blah.

That is so neat. WTG mom.

I love when ladies dress up like that. She looks like she's having fun.

Your mom's over 70? No way. She looks amazing. That hat alone is worth it.

05-08-2009, 08:04 PM
That's great! It sounds like you both are really enjoying this. Tell her congratulations!

05-08-2009, 08:08 PM
I can see why they picked her. She's beautiful, like her daughter. Yep, congrats & way2go. Calls for :Cake: :)

Wow! She doesn't look it at all! The pictures of her are gorgeous.

That's awesome! A lovely lady, and what a great hat.

I love "church hats".

05-09-2009, 06:33 PM
Awww, you guys are so sweet. Of course I think she is beautiful. I'll have to tell her all the nice things you all have said. It will make her day. :)

Mom's article was in the paper last week!! I'm kinda proud, because they used the bio I wrote for her when she was nominated instead of writing a new one. Martha, the society editor, changed it a little to make it seem as though she interviewed her, but overall she left it the way I wrote it. The downside is that she also added a few grammatical errors. She also opted to change "Mary" to "Conner", which I didn't like. It seems impersonal. I guess ya can't have everything. Haha. :)

I missed this when you first posted it, so: Way to go Carole's mom! :)

Also, I think we should all start dressing like that. All the time.

Either that or pirates.
