Happily Ever After

This is the picture of "Happiness", don't you think? The girls have been looking forward to this years Daddy Daughter Dance ever since they got home from last years dance! They look so beautiful and SOOO in love with their Daddy. And what little girl wouldn't be in love with a Dad that dressed up as Prince Charming just to make the night perfect for his girls. What a fine catch he is! This years event was just as fantastic as I expected it would be. Man I love Dupont!
Here is my attempt at a pretty "princess" hair do. I was pretty happy with the results!
Getting corsages from Dad. The perfect touch!
Cutting the rug...
Some of the super fancy treats and decor...
And a Happily Ever After

Emily's Perspective:
I thought the dance was really fun. Snow White was even there! It was also really cool because at the end people got to take home the decorations that were on the tables. I loved the desserts. They had marshmallow shiskabobs that were soooo yummy. Some of my friends were there and we played and danced together. Dad and I made up this really cool dance. It goes like this: You all hold hands like you are about to play ring-a-round the rosie and then you start to twist around and get all tangled up. Then you turn inside out and nobody is supposed to let go. Once you turn inside out you have to get untangled. I also liked that Dad would put his legs apart, swing me under his legs and then throw me up in the air!
Kate's Perspective:
I liked the flowers that Dad gave me. They were so smelly and pretty. I wore my new "angel" costume from Christmas because it is so long and smooth. It is my prettiest costume. Mom put fairy dust sparkles on us, it made me so happy. I even got to wear Mom's make-up it makes me so pretty. At the dance I loved slipping under Dad's legs and then going whew up in the air. I got to eat cupcakes with flowers on them with my friend Vivian. Then we played with the flowers. Daddy even spinned me around really fast that I flied!!!! I had such a good night! One more thing...I got to drink a smoothie!

That is to die for...such great moments to remember. Love the girls hair! I was hoping Mike would be able to take Emma this year but we were out of town. Definitely next year!

What totally fun memories, and who wouldn't want to take such beautiful girls for an evening out.
They are only getting more and more beautiful.

How fun! They looked so adorable! Where did you get a cape like that? That was awesome! I can't wait until Kent takes our girl to a daddy-daughter dance. I guess we need a girl first, though.

WOW! What a fun night! I would have loved to do something like that as a little girl. They will always remember that night :) And I love how you posted their perspectives. It will be fun for them to look back at someday. You guys throw the funnest parties up there!!

Sooo fun!! I miss Dupont! Great job on the girls hair. I was thinking about the Daddy daughter dance and couldn't wait to see some pictures. Great idea to put the girls thoughts on the evening as well.

How sweet! The girls seemed like the had so much fun (who wouldn't)? Dave is such a good sport about dressing up, what a champ! Who put the dance on? It looks quite fancy! I hope that Kaya & Aaron will get to create fun memories like that someday!

Andrea said...

Awesome! what an amazing night with dad! Everyone looked beautiful! I think we might have to start that dance in our ward. you have such a fun ward!

Seriously ... this is the sweetest post I have read in a long while. To this day, I have very fond memories of the "Daddy-Daughter" dates I went on. Ah, brings a smile to my face :) Of course, my dad never dressed up. I wonder if John would for his daughter?

Karin said...

Your girls looked so lovely and Dave was truly their prince charming! (Adam was grateful to be in his suit.) Rachel had such a great time too and it is so special that our girls have that time with their dad. Dupont does a really great job with these every year! Thanks for all the great pictures you sent me from the dance!

Daniel said...

Wonderful post. Their hair is spectacular in those photos and Dave looks like the greatest dad on the planet. And, as usual, the photos are fantastic. It was great to see old DW when he was down. He's truly a great guy and one of my best friends!

Emma still talks about the dance last year, and I was really missing it this year. What a great theme. Your princesses are beautiful!
