Gracie woke up with a smile yesterday morning because it was the big day.....
Daddy Daughter Dance Date Night!
She was so excited. She couldn't wait to wear her sparkly pink dress. She wore it last year too but oh well, they'll still be plenty of years of dress shopping ahead of us!
We got home from school, ate, painted nails, curled hair, put on makeup, and wall-ah....my beautiful girl!
Daddy even surprised her with a coursage!
She looks so grown up. She's even wearing nylons!
What a cute couple!
Super excited to get going!
I sent Daddy with the camera but luckily, I volunteered to work it too so I got to see the girls in action. The theme was princess. It was the most darling thing you've ever seen. Pink and purple everywhere. The girls got a favor of a bracetly and a light-up wand (my station I manned), there was a DJ and even a photo booth with props!
Gracie immediately found her BFF Jackie.
There was some dancing going on but mainly running around with friends. Although Gracie did enter the hula hoop contest.
Gracie and Lacey.
They are good friends too!
These two look so grown-up!
Here they are with twins Evelyn and Emmaline, 2 girls in their class and also in our Girl Scout troop!
And then of course they played "Butterfly Kisses" and all the dads were slow dancing with their daughters. I'd be lying if I said I didn't have tears in my eyes. It was the most precious thing.
Here are some of the pics from the photo booth. I think it's safe to say they had a great time.
The date also ended with a trip to Culver's for some ice cream. Yum!
In couple of years, Daddy will have 2 dates for this event and I will get to go to the Mother/Son dance with Presley. I can't wait. I love these things. And at least for now, Gracie's only date is Daddy.
