Belles of the Ball

Last Saturday, Libby and Emma Jane got to go on their first date!

Their prince picked them up at the front door,

gave each of them a corsage
 and then whisked them away for a night of dinner and dancing.

John really wanted to go too, but he had to settle for an evening of the usual routine with mommy instead. 

They had a wonderful time and talked my ear off for a full 30 minutes with all the details when they arrived home.  Emma Jane's only complaint was that "it wasn't much like a ball" because "they didn't play the right music."  She wanted to twirl and spin with Daddy but the DJ was playing nothing but hip hop.  Luckily, her prince came to rescue by politely asking the DJ to maybe play some more kid-appropriate music at the Daddy/Daughter Dance. 

A novel idea, no doubt, but one that saved the Ball for his Belles! (And probably a few other princesses as well!)

Daddy daughter dances are the best, and look at those huge smiles!

How lucky are they! Love how he came and picked them up. And hip-hop? What was the DJ thinking??
