Winter Wonderland School Disco

"The Snowman and the Blizzard"

How Zoe felt about the disco (above).
How Haley felt about the disco (below).

The girls had a really good time. Haley spent a bit of allowance money on a flashing light necklace and a juice box. Little material girl that she is, that was the peak of the evening as far as she was concerned and she was ready to go. Between the lateness of the hour (it started at her usual bedtime) and the sensory overload, she lasted about 45 minutes. Luckily Steve got there right about then and took her home to bed.

Zoe, on the other hand, shook her little booty and danced the night away. She didn't sit out a single song, including doing her best fist-in-the-air jumping up and down during Foo Fighters' "The Pretender" (yes, those of you who know me, I DID ask the dj to play that "for my kids", and not just because I wanted to hear it played really, really, loudly, I swear) and straight on until the last song of the evening, a 2 minute 47 second long knees-up-as-high-as-you-can-get-'em, cancan. How long can you cancan?? Whew!

The room was crowded, it was hot, it was humid and the music was blaring. Everyone danced, even the boys. The dj hauled out all the old favorites, including the Macarena, the Chicken Dance, and a couple other Kiwi traditions. Everyone knew all the moves and all the words. I saw some genuine break dancing by some very talented young girls. The winter costumes were fabulous. A good time was had by all.

This last picture of Zoe I snapped on our way out, as I aimed the camera at her and asked, "Hey Zoe, how was your first disco in New Zealand?" Her look says it all...

Here's the rest of the album for a look inside the disco.

What a blast! Wonderful and clever costumes, too. I felt like I was there in the room with you all. And, Zoe was glowing in that pix. And, Haley looked so cute.
Wow...what a great time.

Great costumes! I love the sparkle wig! It sounds like it was lots of fun for everyone. PS. I love Dave Grohl and was so pleased to see you requesting it.
