The Big Day

The Big Day. We've been practicing this dance since January. Personally, I think it was a little too early to introduce it to the girls, because I think they were getting bored of it by the time June hit! But when the Big Day arrived and she put her costume on, she transformed into little miss ballerina! I went to grab my camera and when I came back into her room, she was already doing dance poses and all sorts of moves that I had never seen before! I couldn't help but take a few pictures and try not to laugh!


The recital was at the Livermore High School Theater. What a great setting!


Posing once again for Grandma and Grandpa


All Smiles after the performance and a kiss from Kate's good friend, Elise. I did video that you can see below during the dance. I'm still awaiting pictures from my dad, who took about 1000 shots during her 2 minute number. They're gonna be great. I can feel it :)



Cousins Hugh and Ethan were there to watch! I think Kate really felt like a princess! Thanks to Grandma and Grandpa, Momo and BG, Maryanne and Dave and Uncle Chris for coming. It was a blast having you there!

Kate is the 2nd one from the left-- the opposite side of the teacher. When I played this little video back at home, Kate was watching and said, "Who's laughing?" I couldn't bear to tell her it was Momo, because I didn't want her to think that Momo was laughing AT her. But then she looked at me and said, "Is that Momo?" Can't fool a kid. I think this is hysterical. I laugh at it every time I watch it. I can't quite come up with a good word to describe Kate's dance moves... any ideas?!!!!
