After the intros, dancing and visiting were in order for a few hours....

Above is my dear Edwin~O. Your expression is great, hon! :)Precious Daddy and Daughter...Norma did a really neat thing where she had everybody sign her little book...I know that will be wonderful to look back and read the pages of signatures...

I love swishing skirts and lively music!!D., the Roman Centurion
William Cleveland, Frederick III, Elector of Saxony"Away they all went, twenty couples at once, hands half round and back again the other way; down the middle and up again; round and round in various stages of affectionate grouping; old top couple always turning up in the wrong place; new top couple starting off again, as soon as they got there; all top couples at last, and not a bottom one to help them."-Charles Dickens ;DTwo men that were very closely tied together in history...
Another picture of the little ones starting to drop off... :)
Everyone danced so beautifully! (Kressant and Rachel are wonderful teachers!) Everyone seemed to catch on so well, and then mastered them to an art throughout the evening. That was a brilliant idea to have lessons a few hours before the evening started...

Anyway, "Capitol, Lydia, capitol!"Martin Luther, The Younger, and Martin Luther, The Older, after the Diet of Worms......:)
Bethy LynThese guys were hilarious! :DWillie with Chips and Camera in hand...

"The Ginger Reel" as some of the little ones called it, LOL. Bethy and Bekah enjoy sweet fellowship...And here's Bekah and I doing the same...K. and Alyssa...(Look, these two lovelies could almost pass as twins!)LOL, the variety is so interesting. It is amazing how many diferents ways we've dressed ourselves ever since God killed the first animal to make clothes for Adam and Eve. I cannot begin to descibe the mercy and goodness of our God, to then, send his Son to be killed, to cleanse us from our sin, cover our nakedness, and clothe us in the robes of His righteousness.

"I will rejoice greatly in the Lord, My soul will exult in my God; For He has clothed me with garments of salvation, He has wrapped me with a robe of righteousness, As a bridegroom decks himself with a garland, And as a bride adorns herself with her jewels."
Isaiah 61: 10Lovely Miss D...Getting a line together...

Observe yonder food stuffs!What happens when a roman maiden, a pioneer wife, a spanish girl and a missionary matron from the 1800's gather for a tête-à-tête....There's nothing like cold water for a thirsty dancer!

Alrighty-'Till later, y'all....
