Dancer's

As you can see below I am quite behind in this blog......oops!! This is Kayden's 3rd year of taking tap/ballet class and Emery's 1st! It was, again, a fun year! Not sure if this will be life long for them but for now they both, overall, enjoy heading downtown to Karen Horton's every Monday afternoon for 45 minutes of dancing! Emery was a little early in starting for her age but once she got going she cooperated.....in her own timing of course! This is not only about dancing but also about discipline.

So a few Saturday evenings ago we headed down to the gorgeous Tivoli for their recital!! It can definitely have the feeling of "those mom's" who put their VERY young children in beauty competitions and that is the part of the rehearsal/recital that I do not care for! Other than that small part it is fun to watch the girls perform ALL they have learned through out this past year!
My Em's who thoroughly loathed every part of this outfit! From her curly hair to the "sparkly" (itchy) outfit! Pretty funny stuff!
One of Kayden's dance's was about pirates and so each mom came up with their own rendition of a pirate! We of course had to go girly pirate! I made the tutu and was quite excited with the way it turned out! Last minute we realized we didn't have an eye patch. This artsy child went and found black construction paper along with stretchy string and whipped one up! 

I know these years won't last.....

we'll be taking pictures of them with their friends and fighting to get JUST ONE with us and them!!!
Gran and Papa
Of course a poser....all on her own!
Love this...

Dancing...
Her class danced to "Hula Baby"....it's hilarious!!!
Us!
