Seating chart with kids?
Jocelyn, on November 21, 2019 at 1:57 AM

Maggie, on December 11, 2018 at 11:05 AM

Which song selection was easier (and quicker) to make? Have you had a song in mind for one of these special dances for years? Which song choice did you decide first? Your first dance song or the song...
