Daddy Daughter Date

Eric and Haylie went to the Daddy Daughter dance last night at Haylie's school. It was a 50's theme so I made Haylie a poodle skirt (the last poodle skirt I made for her fits Anna now!)

They went out to eat pizza then went and danced their hearts out. Haylie's concept of dancing consists of spinning around in circles as fast as possible - so needless to say, they didn't last long! Eric got dizzy and Haylie got a tummy ache - apparently she ate too much pizza - so when they got home, she asked to go straight to bed. Umm...yes!

She has been Eric's shadow all day today - she really loved having that extra special time with Daddy.

So here are some pictures:

Miss Grump does not like to waver from her usual fashion. She loved the poodle skirt, but did not like that she had to wear her "church shoes" with it (she wanted to wear her brown boots). She also did not like the headband in her hair. This is why she is wearing such a sour face.
Anna felt left out so I got her dressed in Haylie's old poodle skirt - CUTE!
After Anna joined in, Haylie started to perk up -look..a smile!!
Eric went for the "richie" look rather than the traditional "greaser" look.

Haylie and Eric always take the cutest pictures together! (Notice the headband came out and the flower went in - this is the pink flower she wears every single day to school.)
I'm so glad that Haylie has such a fun daddy to look up to and love.

My friend, Brock Heasley, is an incredibly talented artist and writer. He is currently participating in a contest with DC Comics. In Brock's own words:

"Every month DC Comics (publisher of Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, etc.) pits 10 comics against each other on their webcomics site, Zuda. For a few weeks, people are invited to rank, vote on and praise or damn the comics until one emerges victorious (read: most popular) and the creators of said comic are offered a one year contract to keep making it.
Yes, that means money. Yes, it’s thousands of dollars (not a ton, but enough to keep doing it). More importantly, it means the little boy inside me doing back flips will have his dreams come true. (He’s making me sick. Who knew the spleen was bouncy?)"

So, since the contest is based solely on popularity, Brock has asked me to pass on the word to my blogosphere. If you have a sec, click on the link above - that will take you straight to his comic. You'll need to register in order to vote but it only takes a minute. He gets extra points if you add him as a favorite and leave a comment as well. Also, they count page views, so go back and visit as often as possible. If you feel so inclined, and you have a blog of your own, you can post this on your blog too to spread the word.

I'm not exactly a huge fan of comics, but (1) this one is very good (2) I really want Brock to succeed in this - he deserves it!

Anyway, go check it out!
