So after a whirlwind few days we completed it with one last excessively busy, blessed day. We started this day with breakfast and then getting ready for the most efficient concept of a "recital" I have ever attended. I dressed Gabby in her hot pink tutu, put her hair in a bun, added a little lip gloss, blush, and glitter (to her hair) and we were ready to attend the fastest recital ever!
Mommy, Daddy, and Gabby arrived 15 minutes before the performance was to begin. The parents waited in line to enter the room where the girls would perform the recital. Once the doors opened we all found our seats and then the little ballerinas gracefully entered the room. The stood in line and were each asked one thing they wanted for Christmas. Gabby had missed the final dance class due to Corbin's birthday, so she had to come up with something she wanted on the spot. Naturally she chose a cat. My crazy cat baby always wants another cat for her cat "allection".
Once they were all in their spots on the dance floor they performed a dance to "The Nutcracker". Their second and final song was to "Do You Want to Build a Snowman?" The ballerinas all loved this song and danced very well to it. We all cheered, clapped, photographed, and videoed our little ballerinas while we enjoyed their performances.
Once they took a bow we were led into another room for the girls to celebrated their achievement with a cookie or cupcake of their choice. We each snapped a few more photos and then we were free to go and enjoy the rest of our day. The recital was the perfect way to introduce these littles into the arena of performing for an audience. They all did wonderfully and seemed to have a great time. Gabby cannot wait to dance again. She truly seems to have a passion for ballet.
