Off to the ball

When the pumpkin coach shows up at your door on a Tuesday morning, what are you to do? You go to the ball of course!

Yesterday we went to a Masquerade Ball for the 7th birthday of my best friends daughter. It was amazingly fun!

It was set at the Lakewold Gardens, a beautiful site, even if everyone isn't in evening gowns.


Here is the beautiful birthday girl. All bedecked in sequins, frills and feathers. Everyone had on a mask in the beginning, but by the time the dance lessons came around, we had all taken them off.

Sarah had hired a wonderful dance teacher to teach everyone who wanted to learn ball room dances for part of the time. She was amazingly understanding as Sarah told her that these are homeschool girls... which could mean they will be your best pupils ever, or as Don puts it "They will do interpretive dance... which means, they do what they want, and you interpret it."


They turned out to be very attentive students as she showed them everything from the Cha-Cha to the Waltz. It was pretty much the most adorable thing ever.

"And where were the boys?" you ask? Outside... throwing balls around. I think that is their training for later in life... I know many a guy who would go throw a football at prom or the last part of his wedding if he could. I wonder if this is in the genetic code or something... because by the end of the dance lessons, the only boys who were still dancing, were also the ones who are still nursing.

Happy Birthday sweet Hannah!

My husband... all decked out on a Tuesday morning. Isn't he sweet?

It was a beautiful dance.
