So my little girls have been trying out all sorts of hobbies this year...well ok, just Gymnastics and dance. We're trying to expose them to a few different things before we let them focus...if they want to. So the verdict is in, and they seem to have enjoyed gymnastics more than dance. BUT I'm going to try them in a different dance program next year to see what they think.

Anyway, their year end recital was a few weeks ago and my oh my were they adorable! Hailey LOVED every second of it. She was ALL about the makeup and the outfit and memorizing and practicing her moves. She wanted me to take a million pictures of her in all sorts of interesting poses that were beautiful in her 5 1/2 year old mind! And they were in my mind too because I just think she's beautiful! She was so dedicated to her moves during the recital and full of concentration! Definitely made me proud!

And then Paige...she took this dance thing on like she does everything in life: 100% or not at all. You just never knew what you were going to get. At the dress rehearsal she just laid on the stage (on her back) and spun in circles while they rest of her class danced around her. So I KNEW we were going to be in for quite a show on the day of. And she didn't disappoint! At the recital we were happy to see her trying so hard and performing her dance EXACTLY how she was supposed to! And then the best was at the end when they teacher was handing out the year end certificates she just stood there...and then shimmied her tutu up her body, over her shoulders and around her neck. And she continued to just stand there. The teacher called her name, and she stood still. She called again, and Paige stood still. Then her teacher said "Is Paige here?" and Paige piped up "Yep I am!! Right here" And she still stood still. Then the teacher asked her to come over to her to collect her certificate and FINALLY Paige decided to move...after she put her tutu back where it belonged of course. It was sooooo cute and had the entire audience giggling in their seats! And in sweet Paigey fashion, she had know idea that anything had happened. Oh she adorable!

It was a great experience and I'm excited to see how they like dance this year! I just LOVE being a mom of girls!!

Hailey is just soooo grown up! And so beautiful. And Paige ... well, we're just laughing over the "who needs a tutu anyway" and the looks on the other girls' faces. So fun and you've captured them so completely.
Love, G-Ma and G-Pa
