The "Ball"

A few weeks ago we were able to attend Stephen's cousin, April's wedding reception.  She is absolutely the most precious person and we were thrilled that she found her true love, Tom.  They got married in a small ceremony and then had a big party to celebrate.  We had been talking to Olive about going to the "ball" where she could dance and see Princess April.  She was so pumped!  She talked about being beautiful for the ball, so I decided we would "fancy" up a little.  I got some sponge rollers (oh! the memories!  Mica and I lived in sponge rollers when we were little! What was so funny to me was that Stephen didn't know what they were!)  She was very excited to have her "curlers" in.  I was worried she wouldn't leave them in for the full afternoon, but she did great and they worked their magic!
 She was so happy to see her "Madeline hair".  One of her friends at school has really curly hair and her name is Madeline, so this instantly became known as Madeline hair!  I couldn't believe how big she looked! 
 When we walked into the room, everyone was mingling.  Olive raced to the dance floor an dragged her Daddy with her!  She came off the dance floor for a total of 15 minutes the entire night.  She had a BLAST! 
At the end of the night, she tried to bust out some "break dancing moves" and lost her balance and landed on her face.  This was the end of the night for our little dancer.  She still talks about April's Ball and how much fun she had dancing!  Here are a few videos of our little mover and groover!

Congratulations to April and Tom!  Thank you for letting us celebrate with you, we couldn't be happier for the two of you to start your lives together!
