Ballet Finale

 It was Chloe's ballet "recital" again a few weeks ago. It's not really a recital per se,  we just get to see them doing their regular class, but its still pretty darn adorable. I have to say I was pretty jealous of all my friends dance pictures of all their little girls all decked out in beautiful costumes and makeup.But next year is performance year at the University so we are excited about that! I did my best to make Chloe's last day special, we did her hair all fancy and she got to wear make up. She was just ecstatic that everyone was coming to watch her, she kinda likes to be the center of attention!

just being all cute waiting for class to start. 

so happy to have an audience! 

Trying oh SO hard to hop on one foot! ha ha love the girl on the end with her tongue out!

look at all those adorable first positions! 

This is one is called the "mermaid dance" it is definitely one of Chloe's favorites. I think it is to help them practice being graceful? they just moved their arms up and down letting "water" drop off their fingers. Chloe took it very seriously and was VERY good at it. ha 

What I found super strange was hardly any of the kids even had their hair done....let alone fancy. Not that there is anything wrong with that, I just thought it was a pretty big deal, everyone was coming to watch, why wouldn't you want them to look like a little ballerina? I guess not all moms are as anal as me! ha 

Regan was the photographer while I video'd and he refused to leave his spot on the bench. That combined with horrible lighting most of the pictures were blurry...sad. 

Their little "friends" dance. they had to curtsy to each other a few times in this dance, and I dont know if it was just that there were people watching or what, but Chloe stared doing hers WAY over the top getting right down as low as she could (on the ground) to curtsy. It was pretty hilarious!


adorable little ballerinas!

 So happy that cam and lex came to watch!! And Ash of course!

This was her ballet pose of choice! ha ha 

With her teacher Miss Madison

Her daddy even brought her some PINK flowers, she was so excited!

Ha ha best pic we got of the four of us. 

Ash with her BFF. she loves my dad, always runs riiiiight past gramma to see "papa", she wouldn't even go to anyone else!

These are Chlo's favorite little friends from ballet Brooklyn and Claire. they would always sit right beside each other. and I mean RIGHT beside...almost in each others laps! 

This is how you can find Ashley during any ballet class. the doors didn't close all the way so she was always trying to watch...or get in. Hopefully she will want to be in ballet too! The only thing cuter than one little ballerina is TWO!! 

I tried to upload some videos i dont know if they worked tho!
