Snapper Doodle, Belle of the Ball!

We were so excited back in September to learn that the Arkansas Scottish Dance Society was offering a children's Scottish Country Dance class. Each Monday night since September has been the highlight of the week for Snapper as she has learned several Scottish dances. On Monday, the instructors put on a formal ball for the kids, as well as all the adults in the adult beginner and advanced classes. They decorated and had a whole table of refreshments. Everyone was dressed up in the Scottish attire, and all the children got to wear their fancy clothes, too! I happened to have my grandmother's kilt, which very conveniently happened to be Snapper's size! So we got her all dolled up and took her to her first ball. I was so impressed with the kids! They got right in and mixed with the adults, beautifully performing all the dances they have been working on. Snapper even got to ask her daddy to dance on one dance! It was a delightful evening. I am so thankful for this class, and look forward to starting up again in January!

How cute is she! I love the plaid. Too bad it always looks way cuter on kids than it does on adults... :)

This looks like so much fun! Jason and I took dancing lessons to prepare for our wedding and we LOVED them! We actually would like to take more, once I'm done nursing Kara. SO maybe next year sometime.

Hey... you need to put Matt behind the camera every now and then so we can see pix of YOU. :)

I love her little kilt! That's great that you had it.
