"Hurry up... I promised to have these shoes returned to the rental store by 6 p.m.
Actually, one of the signs at a Quinceanara is that a girl takes off her pumps and puts on high heels for the first time. (Photo by Elaine Dolphinas.)


Here's Beverly, the queen of the household crowning Merina as her princess. (Photo by Elaine Dolphinas.)


Here's Merina adjusting the scepter that her Godmother Bonnie Damey gave her. (Photo by Elaine Dolphinas.)


I think they're watching John changing Merina's shoes. Left to right, we have half of a Craigie boy, Barbara Craigie, Arlene Beale, Fr. Bob Turner, Ann Heitstuman, (kneeling) is Julia Brewer and her daughter Haley, and Beverly. Sneaking in behind are Melissa and Jennie Flesch of Tukwila. (Photo by Elaine Dolphinas.)


Quick... I've got the scepter now. Let's see them try to get it away from me! bwahahahahahaha

"Is that all that's left for me?" wonders Merina. (Photo by Elaine Dolphinas.)
