D6 Daddy Daughter Banquet

On Tuesday night the D6 Home Educators of Southeast Oklahoma held a banquet honoring dads and daughters.  The moms and sons hosted this event. 

The banquet room was elegantly decorated for the honored guest.  Each dad and daughter had their picture taken together soon after they arrived.  They then had time to mingle with the other dads and daughters and find their places at the tables.  A photo slideshow of our groups past events and activities played as the guests mingled and while dinner was being served.

The menu for the evening was
  • Chicken or Brisket
  • Pasta Salad
  • Ranch Potatoes
  • Green Beans
  • Bread
  • Individual Chocolate Heart-Shaped Cake or A Slice of Cocoanut Cake
After the wonderful desserts it was time to play some fun games.  The first game involved the oldest girls and their dads.  It was our version of The Newlywed Game to see how well the dads knew their daughters.  The second game involved the other dads in which they each had a deck of cards and a plastic cup.  They placed the deck of cards on top of the plastic cup and the goal was to blow all, but the last card off the top of the cup.  Their third game was to place an oreo cookie on their forehead and move it into their mouth without using their hands.  The finial game of the evening was to see who could empty a box of Kleenex the fastest.

It was a wonderful evening and a great way for us to end our time with the D6 Home Educators of Southeast Oklahoma.
