(Thank you, Katherine for lending me your hoop skirt!)
Karl and Nancy Falster, on the left, and some of the officers and men Presenting the Colors, on the right.
I was trying to NOT look scared! =) I believe that this was taken right before I sort-of asked Jared Cronin to dance. or maybe right after...
My beautiful parents~ they did have fun, but I think that they should learn/practice the Waltz! =)
Gay Gordon is the name of this dance, I remembered it from last year (Papa & I learned it together- it's easy & fun). I asked Mom to dance, so I danced the man's part. =) We had fun! =) It's a progressive dance where you do some steps and pass the lady off to the next guy. Everyone goes around the circle and ends up at the end with their original partner. Quite fun!
Mark- the-Barber, from Greenville and Dad sitting at the Ron Paul table.
...the Waltz Game (or is it called The Broom Dance? I can't remember the name of this dance.)....It's kind of like musical chairs, there is one extra guy who gets left out if he can't grab a girl and he has to dance with the broom! But it was lots of fun! You should have been there! =)
Embedded video of the fun:
You know me, I just HAD to stretch out my back! (While watching the ?Schottische?. I tried this dance last year, and I am no good, so I sat it out this year!)
Dad and I danced 2 Virgina Reels and the Patty-Cake Polka! =) During this dance, Dad got caught between 2 hoop skirts...that was pretty funny!

All evening I kept thinking of Molly Gibson's dress- "not a proper tartan"! =)
My belt is lovely & velvet, I found it at the Garland Goodwill store for $1.99!
We hope to see you at the ball next year! =) www.sincerelysouthern.org/
