daddy/daughter dance

i so wish i could have been a fly on the wall this past saturday night. raelyn and dave went to a daddy/daughter dance at one of the local middle schools. they have been doing this dance as a fundraiser for the last 5 years, but this was the first time that dave and rae went. when dave first asked her if she wanted to go she was pretty timid. we told her that daddy would be with her the entire time and some of her friends and their daddys would be there as well. she decided she would go so i asked her if she wanted me to make her a dress. she said yes :) so i made just a simple little jumper that was a little longer than any of her other dresses. she wanted braids in her hair, NOT curls. i had a fun time getting her ready. made me excited about when she is older and really goes to a prom or something :) i have so enjoyed getting my nieces ready for theirs in the past.


daddy thought to get a corsage for rae and picked it out all by himself. when he brought it home and showed me, i almost cried. what a thoughtful idea from a daddy just smitten by his first born daughter. raelyn loved it of course. they had a great time at the dance, they danced together and then rae danced (well pretty much just ran around in circles) with her girl friends. i was so proud of both of them. i know that was NOT daves sort of thing, but they sure did have a great time together. brenna cant wait till its her turn :)

Precious... that is the word that flooded my mind and touched my heart as I read your post and saw the pictures. What a treasured moment in a little girls' life!

Oh how sweet! This post made my heart so full. A daddy loving his daughter, and teaching her what it means to have a gentleman love and respect her. Love the dress, love the corsage, and love the idea of a daddy/daughter dance! Precious!
