My little Cheesy Mouse! Ellie was a mouse this year, I just wanted to eat her up in this costume. I will definitely post a video of her cuteness when I get it. This girl loved being on stage. I was trying not to laugh while I was out there with them because she kept waving frantically at her dad and grandma's.
This is my ballet tap class. They did a dance to "happy little working song" from Enchanted. They danced with pink feather dusters and it was darling to say the least!!
My Hip Hop class was one of my favorites! These girls are hysterical.. we laughed a lot! The dance was an 80's exercise theme with bocu balls. Half way through the song, the music changed into a funky hip hop dance. They did great, I was so proud of them!
My other ballet tap class did a tap dance to "Hairspray". All of the dances were supposed to have a room in the house theme. This one was the bathroom.... hairspray... bathroom... maybe a stretch but the dance was super cute!
I need a medal for this class. I taught 12 three year -old's ballet ALL YEAR LONG! How? I don't know! With a three year old at home, no one should be required to spend an hour every week with 12 of them ;-) I actually really enjoyed this class- they were a lot of work, but very darling. My friend Rachel's daughter was in the class... it's always fun to teach my friends kiddo's.
I don't know where all of my dancers are in this picture, but the class was much bigger. This was my ballet class. All very sweet girls- it will be sad not to see them every week. This was my class that always had news for me! I could be wrong but I think someone lost a tooth every week in this class!!
This day started perfectly and ended perfectly. My mom called me at six in the morning telling me she was at my front door! I was so excited because she was able to see Ellie dance, and all of my classes as well. I knew she was coming up to take care of us, but I didn't know she was coming so soon... it was the best surprise I have had in a long time! THANKS MOM.
After the recital, John gave Ellie some jewelry. It was really sweet to see her excited about her ballerina necklace and bracelet from her daddy. Her above pose says it all! She also made sure everyone knew about her new "pretty necklace." Jensen also gave her some flowers, I think he really enjoyed watching all of the dances. Even though I was dancing on stage with her, I was such a proud momma- she was darling.
I also received a lot of love from all of my little dancers!! Many of my students are really into this pregnancy, so I left the recital with cute baby gifts, and plenty of gift cards. One of the gifts was a hefty gift card to Starbucks... a true sign of the Pacific Northwest culture. I guess it is time to start drinking hot chocolate!
I am sad I won't be seeing these girls everyweek, but it really couldn't have ended at a better time. I will miss it for sure!
