Daddy Daughter Dance

Katelyn and her best friend Chandler went with the Yikes to get them ready at my friends' (Kyle and Tiffany) house. They have daughters almost the same ages as the Yikes and they went yo the dance too. Tiffany, Chandler, and Katelyn did a great job doing the girls' hair, nails, and even a little bit of make-up. The best part though is when Kyle and I snuck out of the house and rang the doorbell. We were there to surprise our girls with roses. At the dance, the theme this year was Candyland which they liked because there was plenty of candy to eat. Their favorite thing while dancing was getting dunked. You and I would call it dipping, but that's what they called it. I texted Katelyn later to see how she was doing and she wrote back that the three of them were watching a movie on "paper view." You might have to say it out loud to get it. More pictures to follow from Katelyn's camera.

Jake --- the girls look beautiful and your similes tell it all. How fun that Katelyn and her friends could help the girls get ready for the dance. Thank you for the photos and fun stories.

Oh girls! You look so pretty! I bet you had so much fun. I can't wait to read about it in Jadyn's story. Oh, and I agree... Getting "dunked" when you're dancing is a lot of fun! Love ya, Mrs. Duron :D

Look at those smiles! Jadyn and Bryn are absolutely glowing! I bet they lit up the room once y'all arrived:

"Wow, did the room just get brighter?"
"It seems to be coming from those two beautiful red-haired girls who just came in!"

As did their beaming father! What a treat that must've been for you guys!

Continued prayers for all of you.

In Him and around the corner,

It was a privilege to be able to attend this with you. Not only did Hayley and Hannah enjoy it, but I too felt like it was one of those special moments the girls will remember for ever. I know I will.

Thanks to Tiffany, Katelyn, and Chandler for taking care of the "girly" stuff. They did look beautiful. Hopefully we'll have the opportunity to do it again next year.
