Dickey Dance Party

We're not sure exactly what happened after dinner on the second night of the Dickey family reunion, but the Aunt-iques surprised us all and performed an amazing Motown karaoke medley...
...which turned into an even more surprising impromptu performance of Otis Redding's "Try a Little Tenderness" (and neither words nor pictures can do true justice to this moment)...
...which led directly to a dance party breaking out. From left to right that's Baba dancing with her granddaughter and namesake Barbara, William and his sister Brooksie, and Aunt-ique Anne with her husband Rudolph (and yes, that is Jay in the background snagging a little bit of tiramisu).
Here's William dancing with Aunt-ique Courtney, who just so happens to be his mom. Really, he's that good.
Aunt-ique Diane with her daughters Claire and Mary Beth. Claire also happens to be Kira's favorite babysitter, just fyi--though for some reason she always wants to call her Mary Beth.
We can't remember exactly what this song was, but it was every bit as spectacular as it looks. Don't let the slightly bored look on Uncle Bill's face fool you--he's just a little put out because his older sisters kept second guessing his DJ skills all night.
One last thing: there was way less alcohol involved in all of this than you might think--certain parties just want to make that known. If you want to check out some video footage of the Aunt-ique routine that kicked this whole thing off, click here.
