Ella's Winter Dance Recital

This past weekend was Ella's big recital! Her and several other little cuties danced to the song, "Where are you Christmas?" from The Grinch movie. They wore these hand-made nightgowns and held candles while they danced their ballet. Ella did such a awesome job! We were so proud of her. Here are pictures from the big day! I tried posting a video and its giving me problems, so hopefully I can get it to work and post the actual performance soon!

Ella and a few of her friends/fellow dancers before the show. Aren't they cute?!
And the show begins. . .
A little blurry(no flash photography allowed) but you can still see that perfect toe point:) Good form Ella, good form. . .

5th position? I don't know ballet:)

At the end of the song, they all yawned and layed down to "sleep." It was so cute. It was the most adorable dance number of the show(I'm not biased or anything:)
Our family afterwards. And Ella holding her beautiful flowers from Daddy. Its the Daddy tradition.
My sister, Tara, came out for the show. Ella was so happy to have her Aunt Tara there!
After the recital, Ella picked Rosati's for dinner(our new favorite pizza spot). And on the way home we drove and looked at Christmas lights. It was pretty much a perfect evening!
Great job Ella! We love you! You are such a talented and beautiful little dancer. Its hard to get up in front of hundreds of people, but you did it, and you were a star!

Look at her big, bright smiles! She must have had a great time! You got some wonderful pictures of her doing her dance. Love the family photo too. And is it me or does Aunt Tara have a similar smile as Ella? :)

How sweet Ella is and she looks so happy! I am sure she was the best little dancer up there!! What a dear thing for her dad to do, bring her flowers. I wish my dad had done things like that. Your girls will have some wonderful memories of you two as parents. You are just the best!
