Winter Wonderland Dance

Loren had called me about it a few months ago and it sounded great! Then came a short trip to San Diego and taking Sharaya to the airport and Christmas and picking Sharaya up from the airport and New Years and well, I had completely forgotten.

And Sunday morning Nick texted me and reminded me about the Winter Wonderland Dance that was happening that night! Ahhhh!! We rushed home from church, scarfed down our lunch and started going through her closet to see if she even had a dress to wear! 

Thankfully we found one but all she had to wear with it was purple tennis shoes. We curled her hair and headed to Payless. She found some cute flats and I noticed the socks she was wearing had holes in the back, up high, on her calf (it was a shorter dress) so we also got some nylons. 

Drove the 30 minutes to the Opera House and made it just in time! 

Nick bought her a beautiful corsage. He was so sweet putting it on her wrist.

These two are absolutely adorable together! 

 We had a delicious dinner of ham, mashed potatoes and broccoli. (All of this was free by the way, put on by a ministry called Eagle Wings.) Then... the dancing began.

They did a little slow dancing

A little jammin' 

Sorry these are blurry. The room was dark and we were in the balcony. This is the view we had:

 After about an hour of dancing and laughing Nick took Beth's hand and led her up to the stairs.

I couldn't figure out what they were doing but then I heard it. Obviously they heard the DJ mention it because they were standing right in front of him. Then everyone cheered and...


"It's fun to stay at the Y-M-C-A!!"

Nick told Beth he wanted to move to the stairs so they had room to move. :)

Loren and I sat in the balcony and talked about kids and life. When it was over we all put on our coats and got one more picture. It really was a fun night and I'm glad Beth and I scrambled to get there. It was so worth it. Beth and Nick kissed once more and we headed to our cars. After we got on the freeway, I looked over at Beth and she was sound asleep!
