What a weekend.
- snake wrangling
- super-glued fingers
- big fat horned-worm hunting [and subsequent flushing]
- toast on fire and
- a marathon ballet recital...3 hours!
Of course we thought our ballerina was the cutest of them all,
and knew the dance steps better than anyone,
and more graceful than even the seasoned dancers.
We might be a bit biased, though.
But just a bit.
It was Olive's first ballet recital and she soaked up every spotlight and applause. My mind began to wander through the modern dance numbers, imagining designing dance costumes and the fabric that would suit the movement necessary. I think I'd enjoy the challenge.
I told her I used to dance when I was little [and complained every single time, right, mom?]
She asked if I ever became a famous ballerina.
I laughed and said no, and that she had a much better chance at it than I ever did.
Glad you survived the toast-on-fire.ReplyDelete
What a sweet ballerina! So adorable. They all are. And I am amazed at the variety of skin tones...fair Azure, bronze Clover...love it.
Beautiful pictures! Such a lovely group of little ladies! :)ReplyDelete
She is so beautiful! I love these pictures!! I can't believe the recital was three hours. Sounds like it's time to split it into two different recitals. :) PS I'd love to see your costume designs.ReplyDelete
I miss ballet recitals. My daughter danced until she went to college so we have a lot of costumes saved up for the wee one here. Your daughter looks lovely and I would love to see her on stage as an adult ballerina dancing!ReplyDelete
mrs boo radley--I know, right? Such different body types and skin tones. I can't wait to see what this next one is going to look like!ReplyDelete
Amanda--thank you :)
Emily--They've already split it into 2 recitals :(. One day perhaps I'll design her some dance costumes.
Tracey--You must have a whole treasure trove of costumes! They're certainly not cheap.
I'm sure she was the best photographed though! Those pics are beautiful.ReplyDelete
Ballet recitals are always mammoth --all over the world it seems! My 5 year olds was 3 hours and my cousin's girl's was FIVE hours. Holy schmoly.
What a beauty! And what an interesting weekend! That was fun to see you for a flash of a second.ReplyDelete
what a beautiful ballerina. my three year old just finished her dance recital a couple of weeks ago and proclaimed your daughter her friend when she glanced at my screen...she's a dancer and my daughters a dancer too of course they are friends, right? oh,the perspectives from a three year old...on the other hand wouldn't it be nice if life were still that way?!ReplyDelete
She is a beautiful ballerina!ReplyDelete
Never mind the ballerina beauty and her sweet sisters. I want to see a close up of the fat horned worms!ReplyDelete
(and your dance costumes for the future!)
Just beautiful! Makes me a bit sad that my sweet little ballerina is now into high-heeled wedges on her little 7 year old feet instead of ballerina slippers.... sigh....ReplyDelete
Beautiful ballerina! Also, I superglued my fingers together this weekend, too. Ouch!!ReplyDelete
What a beautiful ballerina! I love the crusty look she gives at the end ;)ReplyDelete
great photos and beautiful ballerina. My little blonde LOVED to dance too. I miss those days. thank you for allowing me time to reminisce.ReplyDelete
So is too precious, Katy -- gorgeous pictures!ReplyDelete
what a sweet little ballerina. and five very beautiful little ladies.ReplyDelete
These photos are brilliant and Olive looks stunning! Wowzer! Wow! That's about all I can say.ReplyDelete
We recently had our first ballet recital, and I loved it, but your pictures are in a whole different class from mine!ReplyDelete
So adorable! I want 5 little girls!!!ReplyDelete
Your girls are just stunning! I love all of your photos.ReplyDelete
omg, what a gorgeous group of girls! this makes me a little less nervous at the thought that I might keep churning out girls, one after the other. so far we have two that are 18 months apart. now that the littlest is 10 months old I am starting to feel a little baby fever rising up again. oh boy....I mean girl?ReplyDelete
