They laughed, they giggled, they tried on funny accessories. They even took pictures with the guy in the giant cookie costume. Afterwards, Danya took her sisters and a couple of her friends, Lauren and Sarah, out to the movies to see "Hugo", which turned out to be a very good movie. It was a great day!

It was much bigger and nicer than I'd imagined it would be. It felt like a high school prom. They had a masked ball theme. There was a whole room for refreshments with all kinds of foods including a chocolate fountain. At the end, Jordan won a prize in the drawing. She got a 3 bedroom cabin up in Estes Park for a weekend! We're all looking forward to going. The girls enjoyed getting their hair and makeup done and shopping for new dresses and shoes for the night. By the time we were painting finger nails, Daniel was getting pretty antsy to go. He had already put on the tux he'd rented for the night and taken the van through a car wash. Men have no idea what the most important parts of a special night are. I was very glad that the young trumpet player from our church band, Luke, was willing and available to babysit. I was able to take pictures and try not to cry every time they played a special "daddy daughter" song while Daniel danced with each of his girls.
Her party was fun and noisy, just like a three year old birthday party should be. Several of her friends from church came to share her special day. She dressed up in her Super Katie costume because her favorite "Super Why" character is Super Wyatt. "Happy" went as Princess Pea. They were both very cute.

What an amazing young woman she is. Jordan is tall and beautiful, smart and funny. She's kind to younger kids and talks easily with adults. She's patient while I take hours to do her hair. Her creativity shows in the drawings and crochet projects she makes. Her fun sense of humor matches mine, in some ways. For instance, when we were at Best Buy looking at electronics I came over to her and Selina to ask what they were doing.
They were listening to music on the big stereos. So, I made a funny face and started doing a goofy dance. Jordan burst out laughing, but Selina turned bright red and ran off in embarrassment. Ah, the fun of being a mom and getting to embarrass your kids! Of course, Jordan just gets my craziness and tops it. She'd be the first to jump right in and start doing an even goofier dance. It's so much fun being her mom!
