Ella as Suzy Snowflake

This past weekend Ella performed "Suzy Snowflake" at her first dance recital. She did so great! At the rehearsal in the morning, she just stood there timidly and barely moved. She is actually very shy in front of groups of people and strangers(not shy with family and close friends at all though). We told her we would give her a surprise if she danced for the recital that night and she said, "Flowers?!" She knew already:) So, we watched nervously as she walked onto the stage that night and sure enough, she did almost every move. Joey gave her pink roses he picked out for her. We were so proud of her! Great job Ella! We love you so much!

Doesn't she look so beautiful?

Way to go Ella! She looks so cute. Makes me want to have a little girl so I can put her in dance class! :)

How cute! She looks so beautiful. How sweet for Joey to get her flowers. Way to go for dancing all the moves, Ella. What a brave girl!

Ella could not be any cuter. I want Linley to be old enough to be in dance. Then again, she will probably be more successfull in football...or boxing...or street fighting. Dangit.

Ah, she's adorable! I love it that Joey got her flowers and that was a great incentive for her. She's definitely a girl!
