May I have this dance?

The Father Daughter dance was over two weeks ago.  I don't know how I get so far behind with posting things to this blog, but these are just a few photos and things I want to remember about this night.  I know that they are still fresh in my mind now - but in a few months, years, etc.  I will be so glad I posted - two weeks late or not.
We have a tradition - now three years long - that she comes home from school and heads up to mom and dad's bathroom for  "spa" time while getting ready for the dance.

Speaking of tradition or maybe antiques is more the word - those hot rollers are the same ones I used to use in high school.  They still work awesome even though they are not Hailey's favorite thing by any means.

It is hard to tell from these photos, but I let her wear a little lip gloss and a bit of mascara on her lashes.  Her lashes are amazing!  I thought the boys had long lashes - but hers are just as long if not more.  She is such a cute little girl, but when she wears makeup I can see hints of what she will look like when she is older and sometimes it takes my breath away - she is a knockout.

The dance was a cowgirl theme and we had everything we needed for her outfit except for the boots (which I ordered) and the skirt (which I made).  I loved how the skirt turned out!  Not bad for twelve dollars worth of bandanas!

She was so touched that her Daddy remembered to order her a corsage.  She kept on admiring it and telling him how special and beautiful it was.  I think hearing her so genuinely thankful and watching her feel so special was my favorite part of the whole night.

She couldn't believe that her Daddy could tell them to make it to match her skirt so perfectly.  My heart was melting.  She was so cute about it.   The next day she even used the corsage box to make her daddy a thank you gift for the flowers he gave her.  She is the sweetest.

Since I am a PTO officer I was sort of roped (you see what I did there?) into helping out at the dance.  It was the first time I have ever been at one of them and it was very fun.  I loved seeing all the girls dressed up in their cowgirl get ups.

I especially loved getting to spy on my favorite cowgirl and cowboy as they whirled around the dance floor.  What a special night - we can't wait until next year!
