I knew we would have a busy Sunday with the “Snowflake Dance” for the Teen Queen while the Boy was down and out with a fever and terrible cough. I was going to make a meatloaf for dinner when they all gave me the “meatloaf again” look. I decided they were right and actually a crockpot dinner would be best so I could focus on the Teen Queen and her friends until they went to the dance.
Meghan and Chase have been friends since they were 4 (10 years now) and they met Morgan this year in their first year of high school. Please don’t think Meghan is sick, she was diagnosed with Alopecia in February and while it has been a hard thing to deal with especially at this age and starting your first year in high school, this girl is stunning and a real trooper. I forget she actually has it as she never focuses on it and it doesn’t hinder her in any way. She still has her adventurous spirit when her and Chase are together!
