We have been so busy everyday this past week with Ava's dance rehearsals for her end of the year show which is next weekend.Yesterday was the dress rehearsal and today I am one sleepy Mama. Her shows are Saturday and Sunday. I am going to work in the dressing room on Saturday helping the girls get ready for their numbers. Ava is so excited because this year she got moved up from the "baby" dressing room to the "middle" dressing room!
Here is Ava before we left home yesterday. Let me tell you I AM NOT a fan of all the make-up, but if the girls don't have it they look so washed out with all of the stage lights. I know it looks so heavy but on stage you can't even tell she has it on. At her shows I will take a picture of her hair, you can't tell it her but she has on a hair piece. I got it at Walgreen's and it clips onto her pony tail, it makes doing her hair so easy!! She loves that fake hair and wore it every where we went over the weekend.
I followed Ava around all day like the paparazzi and she was so sick of me taking pictures of her. I know that next weekend during the actual show that it is going to be so busy that I am not going to be able to take pictures, so I wanted to get all my picture taking in this weekend. Anyway, as you can tell Ava is NOT happy that I am taking another picture. This is her jazz costume. Their song is "Somewhere over the Rainbow" and all of the costumes are characters from Wizard of Oz. Here is Ava with the tin man and the lion. Ava is the good witch. Isn't her big crown rockin'? The other girls are on the other side of the stage they are the scarecrow and the bad witch. I will take a picture next weekend of the whole class.
This is 10 seconds later. I asked her dance teacher Jill to be in a picture with the girls. Ava LOVES Jill look how happy she is now!!
Last night I stayed up until midnight talking to my sister Shelby. She and her husband Ryan just got home from a one week cruise, it was fun talking with her and hearing all about it! Her two favorite things, the amazing FOOD and the LAUNDRY!
