My little ballerina

This past weekend was Tater's first recital! I was probably more nervous than she was. First off let me start by saying that this was a much bigger production than I thought it would be. Initially, when I signed her up for dance I had two options: beginner's ballet or a mommy and me class. The beginner's ballet had a recital at the end and I thought: "How cute, a recital! Same cost...how much fun would that be." I had no idea. I did not realize that she would have to have special shoes, make-up, a bun, $14.00 a seat tickets and no flash photography or video (because you can buy a professional video for only $30.00)! Seriously, this was a 3 and 4 year old class, not a Broadway show. Moving on...

(Notice my adorable niece next to Hannah really rockin' the show. She was so serious about dance!)

Like I said, I was much more nervous than her. I thought for sure she would get out there and freeze but she did exceptionally well. From what I could see backstage, she remembered all of the moves! The only mishap was that half of the girls (Hannah included) ran off stage the wrong way. It was so cute, they ended and stood there for a minute looking back and forth and then ran off the wrong way. Meanwhile we were back there trying our hardest to get them to come to us.
Here she is after the "grand ally" holding her flowers. I made sure that Daddy picked some up on the way to the show and she was so proud to get them. However, once her Grandma gave her a figurine the flowers were long forgotten.
Meanwhile, Zander was with Uncle Ty...the bachelor. Notice anything funny about his diaper?

Oh I am so happy the recital went well! She looked so pretty. I laughed at the diaper change! So funny. Is Hannah going to continue dancing next year?

Hannah looks so cute in her ballerina outfit. She looks so happy and proud of herself! Very cute. I can't believe how much some things cost! Don't you love how they try to get money out of you for everything- like the 30 dollar video! JEEZ! I'm glad she had fun though. I love the bachelor diaper change :) Very funny.

She look beautiful in her littler ballerina outfit! Every little girl she does this at least once :) Funny thing about the last picture with the diaper on backwards...my husband and I did the same thing to our nephew a few years ago! lol We had NO idea how to put a diaper on...so I feel his pain!
