Touchable bubbles

 Touchable bubble have always been a hit in this house
 Carter's bubble snowman
 Evelyn had a blast with them
 One landed on Belle's nose
So much fun!

 I was able to get a couple of pictures of Audrey and her friends while we waited for the recital to start.
Here's Audrey and Lily.  They are the same age but in different classes.  Last year they were in the recital together because they combined the classes for the recital.  This year the classes were too big to combine.
 Audrey and Kate
These two always have fun together.  Kate's the one we went to Nutcracker and Cinderella with.
 Proud of my little ballerina
 Tita Angela wouldn't miss the big show!
 The three of us :)
 Audrey found this metal floor outlet and tapped on it.  It provided a lot of entertainment.
 She's always so serious on stage
 They danced to the song Car Wash

 About to take her bow
 Ready for ballet to start
 Ballet was danced to True Loves Kiss from the Enchanted sound track

This girl loves to bourree! She does it all the time at home.

Blowing a kiss

 A smile! :)
 A group shot with her teacher Miss Allexe.  She is amazing with the girls and we are so sad to be out growing her next year.
Tons of roses for our beautiful ballerina
 Her friend Emily gave even gave her a rose.  So sweet!
Grandma and Grandpa came to watch

 The highlight of taking ballet is the recital.  The entire year Audrey asks how long until she's on stage :)
I love her tap costume! 
 I signed up to be a chaperone for her class.  I printed out different ballerina pictures for them to color to try and keep them occupied for a while. 
 Audrey wanted a picture with her picture.  She said she colored it for me.
 Creating her own picture on the back
 Lining up to head to the stage
 Always posing.
 We tried to get a group picture before they went back stage.  We didn't have enough time to organize them.
 Looking cute in her ballet costume
 The coloring only lasted so long.  Audrey thought her ballet costume was perfect for twirling.

Recital pictures

 Audrey had her recital pictures taken at the studio the day before rehearsal.  Her friend Kate had them at the same time.  It didn't work out for us to do them last year so this was the first time at this studio.  I'm not sure I'll do it again next year.  It was a little too unorganized for me.
 In the hallway waiting our turn,
I didn't  scan them in yet so here's a picture of the picture.  I was also disappointed with the quality.  Audrey was goofing around while we were waiting and got her knees dirty.  There wasn't time to wash them and it didn't brush off.  The photographer didn't even photo shop that out!  And her back drop was terrible.  Who uses a wrinkly sheet for a ballet backdrop!? (Which also could have been photo shopped)
Her ballet picture
Now I know it's not worth it for next year.  Obviously, she still looks cute :)
