Friday night was date night in our house. At least with the older kids. Evan stayed with Grandma for the evening.
James and Hannah went to a Daddy Daughter dance at our church. It was country western them. It's such a fun time for the both of them. The church has this event each year and Hannah has been talking about it since last summer. She picked out her dress months ago! At the event they eat dinner then they learn a couple dances. This year it was the two step and a line dance. It's a really fun night for Daddy's to "date" their daughters. Big James has taken this as a real opportunity to talk to Hannah about how boys should treat her and what to look for in a husband. Such a special time. Hannah cries each year when it's over because she has had such a great time alone with her daddy.
Little James and I have made it a tradition to go on a date that night too. I always let him plan it, as that's what guys do right? This year he planned for us to go to IHOP then to a movie. He's very traditional. I love this opportunity to teach James how to date a woman. I make sure he opens doors and all that good stuff. I completely enjoy our conversation time. He takes the opportunity to talk to me about things that he wouldn't normally. I'm the one that cries when it's over. I love that night. He is a sweet, tender hearted boy that loves the LORD and I love to hear him talk. I love him and I know he loves me. I MELTED when he wanted to hold my hand in the movie. There is still a little boy in there :) No pictures for us. I forgot my camera.
