Lauren had her very first dance recital last Saturday. She performed to the song "Ellie the Elf." Such a cute song.
The first 10 times you hear it.
She has been taking ballet and tap for the last 3 months and seems to like it.
She was MOST excited about getting a costume to wear and putting on the makeup though.
I wasn't sure how she would do performing at the packed high school auditorium - but she was great!
She got right up on stage, singing and dancing her little heart out.
The best part was right afterwards when Greg gave her some flowers from him, Graham and daddy. She took them in her arms like the 1000's of princess shows she watches.
It was like she was thinking.."Of COURSE you would give me flowers!"
We got a good laugh out of that!
The boys were miraculously patient with watching this program - especially since I had taken them the night before to go see "The Nutcracker." I insisted Dan do something very "boyish" with them that day to even out all the ballerina-ness they had been subjected to!
