Tiny Dancer

Wow! It sure has been a while. I have missed blogging. I just can't seem to find the time. I was looking for something the other day...a picture I think. I knew it was on my blog. I found it, and in the midst of looking realized how many memories I had documented...this I had forgotten about had I not blogged about it. I'm going to try to get re-started. Even if it's not a long post, I want to post something about daily life with this sweet family of mine.

Ella Grace is LOVING dance! She had her first dance recital last weekend. It was SO cute! She had a blast, and I had no idea how hard it was on a momma. The other moms and I spent our time changing costumes, running back to the auditorium for the performance and then running back to the changing room. I was exhausted, but I was SO proud of her! She did great and had so much fun!

We couldn't take pictures or video during the performances. These are pics I took before and back stage. We are ordering a DVD, and I'm anxious to watch it.

Granny brought her flowers...

and so did Daddy. This was at the awards ceremony at the beginning of the recital.

She did her tap routine to "Boot Scootin' Boogie." Precious!

She did her ballet routine to "My Girl." Sweet doesn't even cover it! I cried!

She did her gymnastics routine to "Walk the Dinosaur." It was her favorite. Here are the girls staying busy with a snack and a movie until show time.

Ella Grace and some sweet friends she made while at dance. She had the best time and I see lots of dance recitals in my future. =)
