I was very thankful that the girls were able to wear the dresses from my sister's wedding to the Purity Ball. I was afraid that they might complain that they looked like "twins", but they didn't mention it! The ball was held in a hotel not too far from home. We found out about it through our homeschooling accountability group. Shelby and Katie were very excited to go to a ball with their daddy!
David and the girls just arrived home as I was posting this. They had a wonderful evening and said they each felt a little like a princess. They signed a pledge to remain pure until marriage which David also signed. They each received a tiarra and a framed picture with the signed pledge. Oh, and 2 people asked them if they were twins! They actually get asked that pretty frequently even when they aren't dressed alike! What a special evening and one that I hope Shelby and Katie will always remember.
