Daddy/Daughter Dance.....

Last night Lexi and her Daddy attended the re-scheduled Daddy/Daughter Dance.This was for all schools in the area and benefited The Reading Room, which is an organization that helps children with reading and comprehension. 
You can tell by the pictures that Lexi had a great time.  They danced, ate cupcakes and took a ride in a limo.  What fun!!
Lexi is out of school today for a teacher workshop so we will just be lazing away.  Hope you all are enjoying your Friday.♥

How sweet! What a nice way for a daughter to spend some time with her Daddy. Her dress is super-cute too (red's my fave color!).

Have a great weekend, Darlene!

Your daughter is beautiful, and she just shines. You can see how much it means to her to have her daddy escort her to the dance!
Her daddy looks very proud too!
Your daughter will set her standards very high. Her dad has set a wonderful example of how she should be treated.

Those photos of Lexi and her daddy are so sweet! My daughter's HS had an annual father/daughter dance. Those photos of the two of them taken at the dances over the years are true treasures. They both enjoyed that special evening together.

Your spring break sounds wonderful! Do you have room for one more...ME? :) I need a break, but actually, a couple of friends and I are heading to Canton, TX the end of March...we are sooo excited! It's the first time we've ever attend the flea mkt there.

We are having great 50s and 60s here in KC....can this dreadful winter be over?

Hope you have a great weekend! L, Dana

Lexi is such a cutie pie. I am glad they had such a great time. You have to love the memories you are all building.

What wonderful memories the both of them will keep from this night. When my children were growing up they had a father/son bake-off competition. My son still talks about this all the time. Have a wonderful day.....

Hi Darlene..
I posted the recipe for onion-cheddar rolls on my blog. I also posted the recipe and pics of Naan.
Both are so tasty and easy-peasy to make. I use my bread machine with both recipes, so you know it's got to be easy !:)
Hope the sun is beaming in your windows today! We actually have a bit of sun shine today..whoo hoo!

Heather said...

Oh how sweet...I am waiting a few more years and then I think Lexi would enjoy it so much better.

Lexi looks so cute with her red dress. Oh and hubby was beaming with such pride with his little girl...although I am sure Lexi does not feel this way but to Daddy she will always be his little girl.
