Our latest ward activity was a 50's Sock Hop. We didn't get nearly the turnout that we have for some of the other activities, but it was seriously a BLAST! I know a lot of people who came that weren't planning to dance, and ended up having a great time! Of all the kids, I think Sadie enjoyed it the most. She danced and sang all night long. Even though she never got an afternoon nap she was happier than the other two until about 9:00! My big job for the activity was making this sign. My dad cut it out for me and I painted it and we strung Christmas lights around it. I thought it turned out pretty good.
My other time-consuming project-of-the-week was finishing the poodle skirts that I started in October! They turned out pretty cute. You can see in the above picture Sadie just wanted to play with the poodle. Here's the rest of us in costume.
We had some swing dance instruction and this cute petite little thing came and stole my partner! It gave me a good opportunity to take some pics.
