Sweethearts Dance

One of the last dances of the school year is Sweethearts. Maggie was asked by a boy in our ward, Korey Williams. To help out, one of the other boys in our ward, Lance Elliott, put together a small group. I agreed to host the dinner and evening "festivities" (just some board games) and chauffeur them to and from so they could all ride in the same car.

Maggie had been quite sick leading up to it, so it was a minor miracle that she was able to go at all. For dinner, I made butter chicken with raita and basmati rice and Cherise provided the naan. For dessert, I made another batch of that delicious chocolate mousse that we had had for Valentine's Day. Lance's brother, Selleck, served a mission in India so was willing to be the server. He even gave me a burka to wear, but I wouldn't wear the full hood, just the dress and scarf. There aren't any pictures because I was too busy in the kitchen--and snapping pictures of my own!

They seemed to have a good time eating and playing Curses and Apples to Apples before going to the dance. It was great to have them here as one of the benefits was getting the house cleaned top to bottom.
