The Father Daughter Valentine Dance

As you know we were in Florida at a convention recently. One of the gifts that they gave us is a little 30 minute camcorder called a Flip. It's only a bit bigger then a cell phone so you can keep it in your purse and use it when you see something cute like Macy the receptionist dog at my chiropractor's office. This was the first time I used it and I wanted to see if I could get it to work on my blog and it seems to be doing that so it's hard telling what snippets you may be seeing in the future! I wish I had had it with me the week before as Macy had on a tutu! She really doesn't have the figure for a tutu but that makes it all the cuter! :o) Let me know if this worked.

Last night was the Father/Daughter Valentine Dance. T and Daddy were going so I hopped in the car and drove over to their house (too much snow to walk through the woods these days) to take some pictures. SOME being MANY! Let a grandmother loose with a camera on a special occasion and no stone is left unturned! Did that make sense? Did I use the wrong analogy? Anywho, you get my drift.....

T and Daddy
The white part of her dress had sparklies! Oh, how I love this girly stuff!!

I said to her "how about a pose"

I had to get a close up of the hair, it was so cute the way DIL had styled it.

The little tierra was the finishing touch!

Cousin Z and her Daddy went with them which made it even more fun!

They went out to dinner at Bug*a boo Cre*ek and then on to the dance where the girls immediately ran off to visit with their friends and giggle, but they did get some dances in with their Dads. Such a special time for a Dad and daughter. :o)

We're expecting more snow tonight and then again on Tuesday. I can see some snowmobiling in the near future! Yippee!

PS Horse Blog Buddies I did the 7 horse quirks if you go back a post or two.

OMG...those are the cutest photos of T and her Daddy. I just love the way your DIL styled T's hair...she looks so grown-up.

I am so far behind!!

Those little girls are adorable - just imagine what is in the future if she's so dressed up at this age??

The video was great!

Oh how cute!!! I can imagine how much you must love that "girlie" stuff after living in a household of males. T looked so darn cute and so proud of her daddy too. They are growing up too fast. :(

The video was great! I took a lot of them this weekend with the Flip and it took terrific pictures. We watched them on the T.V. Perhaps I can figure out how to put them on the blog. Yeah, right.

We had a great trip -- a tad different weather from last weekend for us. We got up this a.m. to 9* and arrived home this afternoon to 80*. Talk about body shock. The snow was incredible and I will try to post some pictures tomorrow after I unpack AGAIN.
