Christmas Dance Recital


Micaela absolutely loves dance. She dances everywhere she goes. I wish I could see what she dreams at night. She oftens recites a dream of being a famous ballerina on stage! And I hate to brag, but she's pretty darned good! She's been doing 4 hours of dance this year. She had a Christmas recital this past week. She strutted her stuff and some great dance technique. She was grinning from ear to ear and is quite the little performer.

Micaela is so lucky to have the cutest teacher this year at school. She came to Micaela's dance recital. Micaela had told her about it earlier at school, then Miss Robbins called to get the details, and then showed up. It was so sweet and completely made Micaela's night. She threw her arms around her and said, "I love you, Miss Robbins!" (This teacher is seriously awesome! She totally goes the extra mile to do so many cute things. She used to teach in St. George. When they were doing their seasons unit, she'd drive to Cedar City and put snow in an ice chest and bring it to school so the kids could see what snow is like, because many of them had never seen real snow. Who does that??!!!) Thank you to Grandma, Grandpa, Grandma Mildred, Nana and Papa and Miss Robbins for coming to see Micaela. Thank you to everyone who supports and loves our children!!!

When the dance recital was over (Micaela did 2 dance numbers and then showed off her technique) she wanted to do it all over again!

And here's what AJ thought of the whole thing...........................................

And he kept asking every 5 minutes if we could go home yet!! Not sure dance is quite his thing!

She looks so excited!!! Don't you love it when they find something they not only love, but are good at?

Darling pic of Anthon! Too funny! I'm sure that'll be my boys when they "have to" go watch Chayli do her "girlie" things! Payback! LOL

It looks like Micaela has found her passion--have you ever seen the Olivia books? I thought of them because the main character (Olivia, the pig) dreams of being a famous ballerina. They have some pretty great illustrations and ideas. Great photos!
