Why Don't We Just Dance

At last.  We have had a dance.  At our house.  With our most favorite people.  
It was brilliant.

Stringing lights, blowing balloons, setting out refreshments, hooking up the speaker, laying out the trophies and ribbons...and smiling.  Lots and lots of that going on. *smile*

And then, our friends began arriving.

"Choose your partners!"

Kellie came up with 4 dance competition categories -  Freestyle, Most Noise, Best Swing, and *drum roll* the Epic Award.  Really.  And the fantastic Brett was our amazing judge.  Seriously, this guy took notes.  He can be the judge any day.  Also Seth, you did a great job calling the dances - thanks guys for making the evening better!

We are so doing this again.

Our dance competition winners were as follows...
Most Noise - David // Best Swing - Clara // Epic - Tilda // Freestyle - John
Congrats ladies and gents!

And to top it all off, a video montage of the evening, put together by Kellie.  Enjoy!

Happy Trails y'all!

p.s. Thanks to Kellie, Ellen, Alex and "Algy" for the beautiful photos and video!

  2. Ohhh looks like so much fun. Loved the video, too.

  3. Hehe - "choose your partners..." had me giggling out loud, especially considering Brett's face and general attitude. Lol!

    Also, the fact that there are precisely two ladies represented in the photo (counting me) and ELEVEN gentlemen. Oh my.

  6. That was epic :). Brett's shocked expression was awesome :). So looking forward to the next one!

  7. Love this!! My family does dances, too, but I'm not sure our people are ready for any of those competitions. But then, you gotta try it to know, right? ;) Looks like so much fun!!

    And I have to mention...I love the prominent display of your darling gray cat in the photos. Any pictures with cats and I'm all there. :)

    Aww, Mitts is such a sweet kitty. I'm surprised he stuck around, we were making so much noise. :)
