Ella has been in dance lessons since September 2015 - she was the youngest in the class but really took to it! She especially loved not doing what the instructor would say and just do what she wanted all while staring at herself in the ginormous mirror :)
I was so excited to learn that even at this young age, there would be a recital! Duh, that's the whole reason we signed up :)
Now to overload you with tons of pics of my girls special day!
This last picture of her on stage has me cracking up - before the show she was begging for a light up wand that they were selling, and I told her she would get one after she performed (I wasn't above bribery especially when I thought there was a chance she wouldn't come on stage!) So anyway, we were holding a light up wand in our laps that my Father in Law had bought and at the very end she said really loud "Is that my light up wand!?" It was so funny and cute, girl doesn't forget a thing!
Afterwards some of us went for ice cream at Ella's request :)
We had such a wonderful day watching our girl shine!!
