FATHER-DAUGHTER PRINCESS BALL

This was a much anticipated day! My oldest daughter could hardly sleep the night before! I think I was just as excited for them too. It was going to be an even more special night since our friends daughter was also going with them.

The day started with me taking my girls to the salon and getting their "updo's". I couldn't have been more pleased. She always does such a great job with my kids. They were pressed for time, so as soon as we got home, they had to put on their dresses and go. They had to be at The Cheesecake Factory at a certain time, as they were going to dinner with about ten other people.

Here's the back of Miranda's updo. Isn't it beautiful? The shimmery stuff is glitter.
My plan was to meet them back at church after their dinner so I could snap a few photos of them. This year I didn't stay (part of me wishes I did), so I took what I could get. But, I do have photos that were taken by other people, plus the video of the "Dad dance off."

However, I did have a great night as well. Some of my friends and I went to dinner too! We also went to The Cheesecake Factory, but of course, we went much later than they did. I'll post those pictures soon!

Here's my hubs and my girls! It was still hot at 6pm, so that is why he was not wearing a jacket. And yes, he is wearing a pink shirt to match the girls. Real men wear pink..lol.
Here's Michele & Miranda. She's the other Princess that went with them. Their friendship has really blossomed within the last year. I'm so glad. Her brothers are also friends with Isaiah, and her mom and I are really good friends. We also knew her dad. He was Isaiah's Sunday School teacher one year, and he really took to him. Makes me sad just thinking about him.
Hubby with the Princesses!
The centerpieces that were made for the tables.
"The Stage"
Refreshment Table
A glance of how the foyer was set up. Way in the back was the Dessert Table.
There were lots of pictures of them posing like that. Tweens!
They are all good friends. Bunch of nice girls!I love this picture!
Some of the girls dancing!
There were also professional pictures taken of them that night, so I can't wait to get those! Overall, it was another successful Princess Ball, and from what I hear, it was even better than last years!!

Ok, I want a crown!! You mommies should go out one night and wear your daughters crowns.. HA HA - ok, just kidding. But, seriously? There is nothing better than wearing a crown! That is so cool that you guys do that, is that through Church? How fun. And, yes, real men wear pink. Or real men who have little girls and love them wear pink!

Jennifer said...

Oh my gosh, the girls are all so beautiful! And the decorations at the ball? So, so lovely! Good thing I wasn't there... if I learned anything from my grandma, it's that if it ain't nailed down, it's fair game - and those centerpieces are a little too cute not to come home with me! LOL! ;-)

They are soooo beautiful!!!!!!! I have heard the Cheesecake Factory is amazing though I've never been. Think I'm going to have to look and see where the nearest one is located so I can beg my husband to take me.

By the way I love your husbands shirt...I think it looks very sharp!

Ms. Latina said...

Thats such a great idea! I don't know anyone who has actually done one, thought it was a TV thing until I read this post!

Ah bueno, I have boys so I won't have to do that or do they do Mother Son balls? Think it would be a great idea!
