Babes at the ball

So our original plan for CCC's Charity Ball was for mom to take the kids home after the reception at the beginning. That way many of our CCC friends could meet Caleb, get to see Kylie ~ she's been a hit at staff training when I cook ~ AND we'd get to have a long overdue date night over dinner and dancing. But you know what they say about the best laid plans.

Enter Ian's food poisoning...

I wasn't gonna stay at the ball alone, we had paid for Ian's dinner, and Kylie LOVES to dance in her "red dess wif the dold fwetter," so...

I took so many pictures of my beautiful children, but I'm limiting myself to a few of my favorites.

Caleb was enthralled with the flowers at each place setting. (I realize that I'm biased, but is he not the most precious little boy? I still can hardly believe that he's mine sometimes!)













That's one HAPPY grandma dancing with her grandkids!
Kylie was sad that she didn't get to dance with her daddy, but Mr. Andy (a dear friend from church) and Unca Adham stepped up to the plate.


Even though her beautiful face is mostly covered, I like this shot of Kylie admiring the flowers too!
Honestly, can they be any cuter?

I'm so sorry Ian got sick!! But you're children are so beautiful! My son just said..."Mom, boys aren't beautiful." So let me rephrase. Kylie looked beautiful and Caleb looked so handsome!!! Where's the picture of you???

Oh my goodness, they are GORGEOUS! I already fell in love with Caleb on your trip to China. Any chance of an arranged marriage between him and Lia? Just wondering :)

How in the world did Ian pick up food poisoning? None of the rest got it...did he eat something completely different?! Poor guy. I sure hope he is all better by now!
Sure looks like a great time. Any family pics of everyone dressed up?
