Although most of us are ill, there are still plans and preparations for the up and coming ball! Jeremiah and the two older girls had taken a (homeschool) ballroom dancing class this fall. And in a matter of days is the Christmas Ball. To say that the girls (Moira in particular) are excited is an understatement. We still need to find gloves for them this week, but that is all that is needed before the big day. And I have to say I really wish I had know about thrift stores back when I was a teen...the money that could have been saved on prom dresses!!! Both Isabella and Moira got their gowns at the local thrift store, as it seems to be a good place to hand off bridesmaid dresses :-) And they were cheap! Like $6 dollars!
We'll have an 'official' photo shoot come the day of the ball, but here is a sneak peak. Moira wanted to figure out, before the ball, what to do with her hair. So she watched a bunch of youtube tutorials and we ended up deciding on something very simple. Here she is!
