When I grow up I want to be.......







Micaela absolutely loves dance and especially ballet. She's always dancing around the house, and it's amazing how she can stand on her toes and dance, without pointe shoes on. I've never seen anything like it before!!!! Watching her makes my feet hurt. When she grows up she wants to dance on stage as a lead in a ballet. She can't wait until she's old enough to take a pointe class.



When we were at the dance studio for Lauren's pictures, Micaela was with us. The photographer and studio owners asked if they could borrow Micaela and her friend Halle (who also takes dance at the same studio) for a photo shoot with one of the older ballet students in her Swan Lake costume. This is how they turned out. I just got a disk from the photographer. I can't wait to get them enlarged for Micaela's room. I just bought a used pair of pointe shoes yesterday to hang off the corner of the frame. What do you think??? I love them!

OMGosh, those are beautiful! I think the pointe shoes off the corner will be perfect! I can't wait until Chayli is old enough to do all the fun girly things!

What great pictures! They will be perfect for her room--and the pointe shoes will be a great addition and add so much authenticity. Yet another decorating triumph (I shouldn't even be surprised!).

Those are adorable! I wish I had known this last night when I was there so I could have had Micaela show me.
