Daddy Daughter Date Night

In February, we went up to Tennessee for the annual Daddy Daughter Date Night in the town I am from. My dad has taken my younger sister the past several years, and this was the first time that Emma and I went. My dad took my sister, Katherine and I, and Aaron took Emma. I think it was fun for everyone! Earlier that day, my mom took Kat, Emma and I all shopping for something to wear (well, something for Kat and me, Emma wore something she already had-but my mom bought that a while back, anyway!). This is Emma and me, posing before leaving for our big night! (I have double chin in all the "nice" pictures of us together, and so you get the crazy one since I look the best in that one.)(Also, I know my shoes don't really look that great with this dress. Believe me, I looked all day for something, ANYTHING, but it just wasn't meant to be. Oh, and I guess we should have moved the mop before taking pictures!) Emma, being her usual self. The Daddy Daughter date night theme was....CINDERELLA. They had a girl there in a blue poofy formal, wearing white gloves and a crown. There was a giant cardboard castle. The centerpieces to the tables were glass slippers or a glass horse and pumpkin carriage. Emma got to keep the centerpiece (we had the horse and carriage). I tell you, there could not have been a happier girl on the face of the earth than Emma that night. See what I have to work with?!?! (And do you notice a theme to Emma's pictures? Nice tongue, Emma!) My dad taught me some of his best swing moves when I was little. We would swing dance together when I was in the youth program at church. He taught Kat some moves, and is now teaching Emma. I love that this is something he has always done with us girls, and that he is continuing the tradition with Emma! Yes, they are doing "that" dance. (I don't know what it is called, but you know which one it is. I will call it...the knee jive.) Emma and Aaron, after a long night of dancing, eating, door prize winning and fun!

Lovin' the pics! I think that maybe one night after 4 of my 5 are in bed me and my little one should come and visit you, and get those necklaces made!

What sweet memories for you all. And are those your dansko shoes? At least you knew your feet would be very comfortable dancing all night:)
