The girls had their very first Christmas dance recital on Sunday night! This was Miss Mabel’s very first dance recital ever and Abigail’s second.
We arrived at the church and I realized that I had forgotten their dance bag. You know, the one with their dance shoes in it.
Hence, the shoe less sister photo.
Jim had to run home to get the dance bag and it was time for Finn to eat, but I had to help the girls get in their dance costumes. While I was helping them, Mabel announced that she needed to potty and since we’re only a week or so in to the whole potty training thing I had to race her to the toilet- where she went(yay!) but then I had to hurry back to finish getting them put together and ready. Then I was trying to take pictures and film but Finn needed to eat and then he pooped and I was just like OH MY GOSH THIS IS MY LIFE NOW. Just utter madness.
Anyway! The recital went beautifully. Both of the girls did all of their dances so wonderfully and we were so proud!
Abigail did a ballet and a tap dance routine and Mabel did the sweetest little dance to Jingle Bells and was the absolute star of the show- charming everyone who watched her.
Abigail has improved leaps and bounds(no pun intended ;)) from her first recital- where she watched everyone else and was always a step or two behind because of it. This time she danced with confidence and was a leader that other girls watched instead. She knew her routines through and through and she danced with such grace that Jim and I looked at each other in shock and both said, “we’ve got to keep her in dance!”
Afterwards, there was a sweet little Christmas reception filled with all sorts of yummy Christmas treats and punch and the girls lived it up! It was the perfect reward after such a successful performance!
We are so proud of our girly girls and they already can’t wait for dance classes to start back up on January 4th!
