Father/Daughter Dance

I don't often post on weekends anymore but I'm making an exception for today. Too cute NOT to share, don't want to get anymore behind AND this will avoid the "after dance" post being packed with pictures. ☺

Today is McKayla's first of many school dances. She saw the note in her school folder a week or so ago and has talked about going non stop since then. She didn't even really give Daddy a chance; he was going, whether he wanted to or not. LOL

She had a whole list of what she wanted to do to get ready for her first dance:

  • Paint her nails ✅
  • Do her hair ✅
  • Wear makeup ✅
  • Wear a pretty dress ✅

She was also very specific on what Daddy was to wear and reminded him numerous times to not forget deodorant....why? I haven't the foggiest idea. It's not like he goes days/weeks without wearing any but she was adamant he not "forget". LOL

We succeeded with all her wishes. Went shopping earlier today for the bun mold (basically, a(n) cheaters  easy way to do a bun), some glitter hairspray and new nail polish. I tried to convince her to get a cute pair of dangle earrings to go with her dress but she informed me she wasn't changing her earrings til she was a teenager. LOL

So I fixed her hair (a LOT easier with the mold!).

Put some makeup on her. (I'll add that while I'm not fond of young girls, kids, wearing makeup, this was a special occasion.)

And then she and her "date" posed for pictures. ☺

And you can't have nice pictures without doing a few silly face shots too. ☺

I've demanded requested that Daddy take lots of pictures, so hopefully I'll have more pictures to share. They even have a professional photographer there, so maybe I'll get lucky and have one of those too. ☺


  1. Awww how sweet!! I hope they had lots of fun and I can't wait to see the pictures. :D

    1. She had a BLAST! Daddy got a lot of pictures....some not so good but I'll get the fixed and posted soon! He also got professional shots done too! Just waiting for the disk to be ready. ☺

The Great Dane Standard Through the Ages Part III ~1976~

The 1976 Official Illustrated Standard
Revised & Edited by The Great Dane Club of America, Inc. Written text AKC approved August 10, 1976 Illustrated by Donald E. Gauther - Great Dane Breeder & Judge Copyright, 1972

1. GENERAL CONFORMATION (a) GENERAL APPEARANCE. The Great Dane combines in its distinguished appearance dignity, strength and elegance with great size and a powerful, well-formed, smoothly muscled body. He is one of the giant breeds, but is unique in that his general conformation must be so well balanced that he never appears clumsy and is always a unit--the Apollo of dogs. He must be spirited and courageous--never timid. He is friendly and dependable. This physical and mental combination is the characteristic which gives the Great Dane the majesty possessed by no other breed. It is particularly true of this breed that there is an impression of great masculinity in dogs as compared to an impression of great femininity in bitches. The male should appear more massive t…

(Typed for easy reading below each picture which has made this post EXTREMELY long. Also, you *should* be able to click on the pictures to enlarge, but sadly still not enough to read the charts.)

There are only five recognize colors; all these basically fall into four color strains: 1 FAWN and BRINDLE, 2. HARLEQUIN and HARLEQUIN bred BLACK, 3. BLUE and BLUE bred BLACK, 4. BLACK. Color classifications being well founded, the Great Dane Club of America, Inc. considers it an inadvisable practice to mix color strains and it is the club's policy to adhere to the following matings:
------------------------------------------------------------------------ FAWN TO FAWN OR BRINDLE ONLY
Pedigrees of FAWN or BRINDLED Danes should not carry HARLEQUIN, BLACK or BLUE upon them -------------------------------------------…
