At the Ho-Down

We had a root-tootin good ol' time at the "Ho-Down"(as Ella kept calling it) last night! There was lots of yummy chili, homemade cornbread, salads and desserts. There was even a real square dance caller there to teach square dancing and line dancing. The kids loved doing the "Hokey Pokey" and the "Chicken Dance" the most. And of course, they loved all of the desserts. A massive amount of sugar is always a must-have at church events:) Here are some of the pictures from the night. . .

How fun! Love the hair!!! You look like Ellie Mae or whatever the hottie's name was from the Beverly Hillbillies. Also I have to admit, when I saw the title for your previous post, I was thinking "I can't believe Holly is getting so personal about her and Joey's romantic life". I was thinking I was going to have to have a stern talk with you before you started posting details...or pictures.

That was such a fun evening! Dax and Ella were so cute dancing together. To bad I didn't win the trophy. I had a place on my mantel all picked out! :) Love the picture of you and your girls.

We actually had the Hokey Pokey ... on a 45. For all you youngsters out there that's a vinyl record spinning at 45 rpm playing on a record player. This was probably around 1960 so kids have been shakin' it to the Hokey Pokey for quite awhile.
