Emery and I had some good times at the Daddy Daughter Dance last weekend. Last year was remote due to COVID but this year it was awesome because it was in-person. We went out to eat before with some friends, then headed to our clubhouse for some Fun games, photo ops, and of course dancing.
Emery and I were supposed to have our very first Daddy-Daughter Dance this year! It was sponsored by her Girl Scouts and was scheduled to be at school. Since everything is closed up, the leaders made it a virtual experience. Emery was super excited for the dance so she prepped all week. Julie helped her buy a new dress and get decorations to make the basement look great!
Before the party started, Chef Julie and Sous Chef Carter provided a wonderful 3-course meal (menu created by Emery) for us to enjoy, at our special table for two. We started with carrots, then had cheese pizza and chicken meatballs, followed by a healthy banana split. After dinner was complete, a bunch of dads and their daughters all joined the virtual dance via Zoom. The kids were allowed to put in special music requests, and all of the Patterson teachers joined the call as a surprise. The teachers announced each song one by one! We hooked the live video stream to the stereo and projector and got c-r-a-z-y. Emery’s first dance was a success and she had the time of her life!
This past weekend Emery had her annual Goddard holiday dance recital. All of the Goddard dancers got to show off their skills with a mini show. Of course, Emery had a blast and had a big grin the entire time.
Julie and I went to our very first TransUnion holiday party. It was a fun night and glad Julie could meet some of the great people I work with.
Our little Emery is a superstar! She had her first dance recital with Midwest Edge Dance and I’m so proud of her getting up on that big stage to show off her skills. Here is the video and some pictures from her rehearsal.
A couple weekends ago, Carter and I slept downtown at the Museum Science of Industry for their annual Snoozeum. We explored the entire place all night.
It was a busy Saturday… my family came up to finish their Christmas shopping, Carter had basketball, Emery had a school program, and her very first dance recital. We wrapped up the day with dinner with my sisters.
