Dancing with the Browns

We had our 3rd Annual Dancing with the Brown's Competition in December. It's fun to see the different couples and what dances they create.


Our very esteemed and impartial judges . . . Shawna, Dessie and Morgan




The first dancers stole our hearts, Ty and Lily! Ty was such the male leader.






Hayden and Briley boogied down to ABBA's Dancing Queen, much to Hayden's disappointment.






Theron and Merri Lyn used her "wheelies" and some fancy flips to gain points with the judges.



A solo dance for Brisbane showed his manly moves.

Adle and Hayden showed their musical talents during the intermission.



Adle and Angela moved with grace and beauty and a daring moustache.






Ryan and I danced to "Oh What a Night!" by the Four Seasons. He was a good sport to participate and dance with his wife. And I even got him to practice!






HeartLee and Brooklyn busted a move in colorful costumes and unique dance-styling.



BJ and Amanda got down to a funky beat that had everyone cheering.

While the Judges tally the votes and their scores an impromtu dance line began with everyone taking a turn.





After a fierce dance-off between the finalists the winners are. . . BJ and Amanda and HeartLee and Brooklyn!!!!!
