Dad was really a super hero this week. A knight in denim jeans :-)
Flowers for his girls.
Dad got to take his girls to yet another fantastic DuPont Daddy Daughter Dance. This year they outdid themsleves with a 50's theme. I walked into the school gym and wanted to be a child myself or a Dad or something so I could stay. The girls were given menus they could order from at the diner (converted cafeteria booth). They could choose from mini hamburgers, onion rings, milk shakes and other yummy treats. All that was missing were waitresses on rollerskates! The tables were decorated by goddesses of entertaining. Each table had it's own theme having to do with the 5o's. There was a poodle table, a soda fountain table, an Elvis table and the girls sat at the cotton candy table. The music was perfect for dancing. What a fun time it must have been to live in. To make the evening perfect they had a special surprise appearance by Elvis who managed to make the girls swoon...even Emily.
Look at Dave's dance moves.

We had so much fun getting ready. It was so cool to have the girls dress up in poodle skirts! I even found cute glasses to go with their outfits. Dad brought beautiful corsages when he picked them up at the door. He was dressed up as a greaser of course. The girls loved that I fussed over them so much. There are only two times a year I let them wear make-up. Halloween and the Daddy Daughter Dance. I tell you what, my girls are going to be heart breakers. They are so pretty and sweet. A total package. Look at those eye lashes!!!! Dad even took the girls in the
date night vehicle (his truck) to our local pizza place for dinner and then it was off to a night on the dance floor.
Emma's two cents:
My favorite part of the Daddy Daughter Dance was dancing with Dad. I loved that he did all the tricks with me. My favorite is when he slides me under his legs and flips up into the air.
My favorite of the night was eating cupcakes. I liked dancing with Daddy and Lucy. I liked putting the lipstick on. I like the poodle on my skirt!
