Hannah and her daddy, Les attended a very special father/daughter Purity Ball. Hannah's little sister, Emily chose not to attend this year, but I do hope that she will go next year. Les was so excited to accompany Princess Hannah he even went out a bought a new suit! He looks very "dapper" as Emily and I said!
