Happy Valentine's Day

So it's our last daughter's first dance! Vanessa did her hair and make-up and she looked wonderful...I hope she has fun!

She wasn't happy about the pictures :-) Especially the "dance card" one~ I'm sure it's the first of many dates for her. This will be my daughter who dates. Not sure how I feel about that. I have enjoyed not having the "boy" drama in our house!!

Anyway, it's a lot of pressure to have a Valentine's day dance.
I should know...24 years ago tonight Doug and I had our first date.
I actually went to a girl's choice dance with someone else. But it turned out he just wasn't that into me and so Doug suggested after I ditched the guy (AKA getting dropped off) he and I go out.
We ended up going to "breakfast" (it really was only 12:30 or 1:00 a.m.) at the Peppermill casino with a friend of Doug's and my brother Lee. We ate steak and eggs and played nickel slots and the rest is romantic history.

Wow, just now I'm realizing that Rachel has been 14 for a month and I haven't heard a thing about dances. We don't have many here and I don't know that she'll be interested.

Hope she had a great time!
