A Tale of Two Ballerinas

Aryn and Zoe had their dance recital last Tuesday evening. The dancers performed
The Nutcracker.

They have a new dance teacher, Tazia, so I was anxious to see how things would go. I have to say that this year was a pleasant surprise. In fact, both Gene and I were thrilled with the performance! Each group had the same amount of time to dance, the girls' dances showcased THEIR abilities, and the whole recital was less than one hour.
This is Aryn's fourth year dancing. I am so pleased with her progress. She has been dancing since she could stand and I think she is just a beautiful dancer.

This is Zoe's first year dancing. I didn't let Aryn start lessons until she was in school. Zoe has been watching her sister dance, and wanted so badly to take lessons this year. She was so cute in her pleading. I couldn't say No. She loves going every week!

Zoe's dance helper was a little girl from our ward. Sadly, Gene didn't get all of her dance.

We had a video of Aryn's dance, but I can't get it to upload. Maybe I'll try another time. She danced well.

P.S. Tomorrow, I'll be posting my first Giveaway!

I HAVE TO SAY THIS.............
THEY LOOK JUST LIKE A LITTLE GIRL THAT LIVED ACROSS THE STREET FROM ME WHEN WE FIRST MOVED TO LAVERKIN ABOUT 30 YEARS AGO. SHE USE TO WEAR HER PRETTY LITTLE FRILLY DRESSES OVER TO MY HOUSE AND PLAY IN THE MUD PUDDLES BY MY HOUSE. WHEN I WOULD TELL HER THAT HER MOTHER WAS GOING TO GET MAD, SHE WOULD JUST SAY,"NO, MY MOM SAY'S I CAN".
