My firstborn daughter was turning 21on New Year's Day, and the girls and I decided on an English Country Dance to celebrate. Having outgrown the possibility to have it at our home, we were able to use our church as a venue.
The invitations went out, some by word of mouth, and so many family friends chose to join us to celebrate Lindsay and to Ring in the New Year!
Oh, what fun we had! I am telling you we have the best family and friends! The young adults and kids and some of the adults all came ready to dance and it was great!
Of course, because I am the dance caller, and Lindsay is our photographer, we have no photos of the dancing. I will ask around and see if anyone has any they will share. I know there was video being recorded - we have taken a fun dance called "Ship's Cook" and made it our own! Love it!
The following photos are of the people arriving and visiting for a while before the dancing began.
Ben, home from Bible college. We've missed his fun sense of humor and great violin skills!
My Mom and our friend Bee. They laugh a lot when they are together!
I love these ladies, and that wee man. Becky posted today about the Ball on her blog, Hospitality Lane.
They were just going to come for a little while...they stayed and Becky and our friends Kelly, Sue and some of the young men did quite a chorus line to New York, New York after the ball dropped!
Isn't Chelsea stunning? She really, is a beauty.
More and more beauty...
Beauty inside and out...
Happy birthday to my precious daughter...so thankful for you. May the Lord continue to be the center of your life, and shine His light where ever you go.
This is the ring that Tim bought for Lindsay...
