My Snow Ball Princess

This past Friday evening, Madison's school celebrated the season by having a father/daughter dance that they called the Snow Ball. This filled Madison with excitement and joy, but also nerves, as she and daddy missed the "dance practice" they'd held at the school. Poor thing was afraid she would look stupid compared to the other kids. As IF!

Professional pictures were taken upon their arrival, but we haven't received them yet. But not to worry, Mommy was ready with her handy dandy camera again! Too bad you can't make out Jimmy's tie. It's got cute little reindeer all over it.

At first glance, it appears that Madison is wearing socks. Would I put my child in a fancy schmancy dress and then put socks on her legs? No! It's just an illusion from the tulle at the bottom of the dress. Oh, and please excuse the various crap on the floor. It was stuff from around the family room that got displaced when I decorated for Christmas. It's gone now!

I love love love the way Madison looks in these next two pictures. Is it totally disgusting and conceited to say my daughter is gorgeous?

And how could this one not make your heart melt like fudge? As much as Jimmy and I have our disagreements (about everything!), one thing is for certain... he loves his girls, and is a wonderful daddy!

They both had such a good time on their "date", and even came home with a snow globe that you can insert a picture into. Obviously that's not them. I told ya we didn't get the pictures back yet. Weren't you listening to me?

Wow, was this like the shortest post in Tiney's Froggy Bloggy history???

    yep they look a great couple. So what happens with the boys at the school? Do they have to go with their Mums or do they have to dance with their Dads too?

    It wouldn't happen here - too many 'Real Men' or so they think to go dressing up and dancing heaven forbid!
