Our unit held a father daughter dance - it was hosted by the chaplain's office and SFA (special forces association). When the girls heard the word ball they immediately said the wanted to wear their princess dresses. The frugal mom in me thought - SCORE! Since we didn't have to go on a search for clothing we let the girls pick up some jewelry when we did a trip to the mall.
The day of the dance I hosted a spa day event for our girls and another friend. To begin I took the girls out for lunch and then after the girls got to soak their feet and play around on pintrest looking designs they wanted. We had to compromise on some choices b/c I am not a professional but I was willing to try and lets be honest they got a $300 experience for free :) Over the years friends have given us many polishes so we had every color under the sun to choose from which helped me create a CocoK experience. After giving each girl a pedicure and manicure we then started on the hair. Again the girls looked on pintrest and gave me their requests and I worked hard to recreate their choice. With the help of bobby pins, hairspray and prayer we got everyone's hair done. To finish off the experience I did the make up which all came from 100 yen store.
I brought the girls to met Jon at the dance and left my phone with him to take pictures of the night. They had Esa drummers for entertainment, a special makeover on some of the dads, cake and dancing. The girls all had a great time on their special night with Jon.
