Our Little Flower!!

Ellie was in her first ballet recital "show" tonight. She was a little flower and was so cute. I was worried that she wouldn't actually get on the stage because of her shyness, but she actually did a great job!! They did a little dance to a song from Alice in Wonderland..."You can learn a lot of things from the flowers." She did a most of the moves, but also a lot of standing around. She really loved getting dressed up and putting on makeup!!

I dropped her off with her chaperone backstage and then prayed that she would be brave enough to go dance!! I even got teary when I watched her. My sister Allison got teary as well. It was just so difficult for her, so "out-of-the-box." She says she wants to do it next year. Aeryn would even be old enough for the class!! Wouldn't that be fun if they could be in it together.

Allison was very cute and she thought of bringing Ellie a flower. Ellie was so thrilled to get a flower!! Aeryn was also so proud of her sister. Aeryn clapped bigger and louder than anyone else around us. She kept asking for 'MORE' when they were changing dances. She loved the show. I am so proud of my girls!!
