Ella's Dance Recital 2012

Ella LOVES to dance and she has had so much fun this year in her dance class. I tried to talk her out of it because we had so many other activities this year, but in the end we let her do it still, knowing it would be her last year. She loved seeing Miss Heidi each week, she loved making new friends in her class and of course, she loved dancing around like a rock star (she now says she wants to be a librarian or a rock star when she grows up). She was super excited to get glammed up for the big recital and did a great job! We love our little dancing girl :-)!
With her cheering section...Grammy, Hopie, Kayley and Oliver

First up was tap, "Who Says"
(I tried to take pictures while video-ing and it stopped recording after, so three part videos is what we have...lesson learned for ballet)

Ella is SO pretty! And it's fun that Mike carries on the tradition my Dad had with us... bringing a bouquet of flowers after recitals. Except it looks like Mike steps it up a bit... we always just got a couple carnations ;-)
