Daddy Daughter Date

Last night our primary put on a Daddy Daughter Date. Juliana was so excited. She was talking about it for weeks and yesterday it was all she could think about. I got her all dolled up!!! I bathed her and rolled her hair in sponge rollers for the first time!!! I painted her finger nails and toe nails and she loved it.

I was really worried that her hair wouldn't dry in time because she hates when I use the blow dryer on her and I put it up in rollers so late but for the most part it worked (with a lot of hair spray). The front ones were still damp but I made it work.

This is Juliana all dress up and ready to go!!!

Here is the back of her hair.

Can you tell she is excited!!!!

They had a really good time!!! They had mac and cheese for dinner and ice cream and brownies for desert. And there was dancing!!!! Juliana was in heaven...she even got to say the closing prayer and that is one of her favorite things!!!! They gave the Dad's a rose to give their daughters and they had a slide show of pictures of the girls with their Dad's. And they also had each Dad write a letter to their daughter. It was really sweet. Juliana came home beaming with joy.

I think they both look very happy.

Here they are ready for their date. Aren't they so cute!!!

Here is the letter that Mike wrote to her:


You are the most wonderful girl in my entire world. I love it in the morning when you come out to give me hugs and kisses. I love when you sing your primary songs with excitement. I am proud of how well you swim. I love that you love reading and learning. I love that you need your "all together" hugs at night before bed. I love that you are so independent and know what you want. I love that you always want to play games. I love when I come home and you want to hug me and spend time with me. You are my special daughter. I love you.



I thought is was so sweet and Juliana treasures the letter...I think she would have slept with it had I let her. I think that we are going to make Daddy Daughter Date night a once a month event. Mike told her that next time he wanted to teach her to play tennis. It was really fun to see them enjoy each other so much and it gives me a night to myself which is so great!!!

What a cute idea!! Do they do a mommy-son activity too? It always amazes me what fun things the Primary comes up with! Wish we were closer and could have seen her in person! xoxoxo
