Dance Recital

It was the annual dance recital this weekend.
And as usual, it was fantastic, their studio puts on a killer show.
Kristen did a tap dance to "You'll always find your way back home" from the Hannah Montana Movie. It was right up her alley, all blinged out and very girly.
She is a natural on stage and SOAKS UP the attention!!!
She did a great job!!

Though apparently, she's not so much into posing for me anymore!
I could hardly get these photos out of her and if you look real close you can see it in her eyes.......

Samantha on the other hand has taken her place and was totally hamming it up for me.
She danced to "Hoe Down" from the Hannah M. Movie. It was sooooooo cute. This is her first year dancing in quite a few years. She is very shy and it took her awhile to decide to do this again.
It's funny though, cause she would come out of dance and say "Miss Janelle was yelling at everyone because they are not paying attention and learning the dance, but she doesn't yell at me because I already know it."
I love her confidence, she really does seem to be able to learn her routines quite easily. She was the same back when she was 4 and took dance.
When it came to rehearsal she was soooooo nervous. And before the recital, again, super nervous. But she told me when she got on stage she was ok. She did great. She totally knew everything and danced with a huge smile on her face the whole time.
I'm so proud of her. This was a big step for her.

You know, I've never been much of a crier in my life.
But I'm finding as I get older, the tears seem to come easier.
I can't even watch my little girls dance without the tears filling my eyes!
What is that??? I'm such a baby.

Oh,my they are just gorgeous! The pics are amazing, and I know what you mean about not being able to hold back the tears the older you get. I am actually from Killeen, so not too far from where you used to live. What a small world!

Fun pictures of the girls! Such beautiful young ladies. I was just blogging about James getting his expander & what a baby I was trying to hold back the tears while he was struggling during the visit. I cry watching James play baseball! It's a mom thing. :)
