~The Summer Ball 2008~

On Friday evening, our family attended the Summer Ball! We had a grand time of dancing fellowship and refreshments! :-) Here's some pictures from the event. Enjoy!

Here is a list of the dances that we did at the Ball. :-)

~Grand March
~Virginia Reel
~Lancer's Quadrille-4th figure
~Two Step
~Duck Soup
~Waltz Reel
~Pop Goes the Weasel
~Lancer's Quadrille-5th figure
~Yankee Doodle
~Final Waltz

There was also a live band called "Arabesque" that played for our group that evening! The music was quite lovely! :-)

Lining up for the Grand March.

Here we are in the middle of the Grand March.

Getting in position for the Lancer's Quadrille-4th figure.

Here are some of my cousins and brothers having quite an enjoyable time I'd say. :-)

Attempting the two step. :-)

As the ball drew to a close we (the dancer's) all gathered together for a group photo. :-)

In Christ,

"Glory in His holy name;
Let the heart of those who seek the LORD be glad."
1 Chronicles 16:10

~A special thanks to our relatives who so kindly shared pictures with us!~

Hello, Chloe!
I don't have your email address, so I hope you don't mind if I post the website links here. The one for swimwear is:

The website for the film my brother is working on is:
Let me know what you think of the trailer! :)

It was good to see you yesterday!

Chloe said...

Hi Hannah!

Thanks for the links!

We watched the trailer and it was really neat! Looks like they have put a lot work into it! :-) Hopefully we can see the movie
when it come out!?! :-)

It was fun to see you all too!

God Bless,

What cuteness! I'm American and I now live in the UK, no one does anything interesting like this over here. You've made me homesick, but in a good way *wink*. What fun you must have had!

Thanks for commenting! :-)
I'm glad you enjoyed the pictures! :-) Yes, it was LOTS of fun! :-)
My brother was just reminding me of another kind of dancing called "English Country Dancing"... I don't know if there might be a group that does something like that in your area? Just a thought. :-) You may already be familiar with this kind of dancing but here is a link to a utube video I found of some "English Country Dancing" if you would like to see some. :-)

And here's another video of one of the same dance's we did called "Pop goes the Weasel" and it looks like the person who uploaded it is from the UK! Perhaps she could be contacted? :-)

God Bless!

How Fun!
We haven't been to a ball since last year for my 18th birthday.
I love getting ready for balls, it is so much fun getting all the girls dressed up and their hair done :)

Hi Jacqueline!

Thanks for visiting my blog! :-) Yes, the ball was lots of fun!

Mom and I were looking through some of your blogs archives and got to see your "ball" post. :-)
Looks like you all had a wonderful time! (I liked your costumes too!) :-)

God Bless!
