dance recital weekend! {one week later...}

Lots of stuff cookin' around here and honestly I just haven't had the energy to keep up with the 'ole blog, so I'm playing catch up!

First up, the little pumpkin's dance recital!!
This is Grace's second year in dance...{last year} her Pre-Primary class did a sweet ballet number and this year her Primary class did a fun tap number to Madagascar's "I like to move it, move it".
Oh my, they were too much!! Sooooooooo full of personality...that's a nice way to put it, don't you think?? HA!

Hanging out with one of her best friends from school, Kennedy!  This was the first day of dress the studio.
On the way to dress rehearsal day rehearsal...
Last year I said I would definitely not be a backstage mom again {LOTS and I mean LOTS of little girls in very tight quarters for 2+ hours} and yet, here I am again, backstaging it once more. Last year I had 6 little girls and this year I had 12. They really were a great group, but oh my, I was soooo tired at the end of day 3!
Looking so grown up *sniff, sniff*...I think this picture is like a glimpse into the future...and I'm definitely not ready.
Finally, Saturday, May 19th...RECITAL DAY!!!

Backstage with their teacher, Ms. Tamara, as girls were arriving...
We lucked out that Grace and Kennedy's classes were placed right next to each other backstage so they were able to play and hang out while they waited their turns on stage.
Kaylen is a big kindergartener this year but last year all three of these sweet girls were in preschool together and they were so cute backstage when they realized they were all in the same room.
Time to shine!
Kind of hard to take pics with the lighting and all, but here are a couple...
Just as they were coming off stage...they were so excited and so cute - love all these sweet girls!!
Our little dancer!
We're so proud of you, Grace!
Mimi and Pop, Noonie and Papa J, Aunt Marilyn, and of course, her #1 fan Hudson came to see Grace dance...
I love how her belly is poking out in this one...he he he...just a tiny reminder that she is still one part little girl, even with all the crazy stage make-up and all...
Sweet girls...Amelia & Grace
We celebrated post-recital with - what else - fro yo!
They may push each other's buttons but these two really are best friends...
Another fun year of dance completed!
You danced your little heart out and we couldn't be prouder of you!!
Way to go on getting promoted to dance with the 6-10 year olds in the Fall!!
We love you so much.
Mama, Daddy & Hudson
