For Heather, who never updates her blog.

Adyson had her first Dance recital the other night, and my sister, who lives much to far away, has been begging for a post. So Heather, here you go. Maybe you should learn from me and update your blog now and then...we miss your kids too you know!

Adyson was quite excited for "princess hair, make-up and glitter"! Seriously, this kid loves to feel even more pretty!

The lovely make-up (it's not complete without pink sparkles on the cheeks).


The lovely hair. The lovely whole package. Seriously cute.
In true Adyson fashion, she was NERVOUS when we got there. She finally warmed up enough for me to take a picture of her on the stage. Once we got her up there, she was just fine and didn't really want to come down! My kids digs the spotlight.



Somehow I didn't get good video of her first dance, boo. So enjoy her tap dancing.


A few things to watch for:

Notice her really trying hard to get the correct number on her fingers. This had me laughing really hard the whole time. Also, she is the shortest kid in her class, so we told her she needed to get in the front row during the dances. Well, she delivered causing much squishing during the dance! And lastly, she was promised that she would be able to hear us cheering (this was important to our attention loving child), so you will hear numerous "Go Ady's, Yeah Adyson, and Bravo Ad's" during the performance.


Forgive us.

Leading up to the recital when we would talk to her about it, she would get really nervous. So of course we did what any good parent did, we bribed her by telling her if she would be brave there would be beautiful flowers involved. Here she is holding some from us and some from Grandma (spoiled rotten I tell ya).

On the way home she said, and yes this is a direct quote, "I don't want to be rude, but Grandma's flowers are much better than yours, they are just so bright and beautiful." Then to cover her tracks, "Yours are fine though. I really like purple..." Yeah. Okay.

Who knew that the 5 year old would be able to tell the difference between our sweet Wal-mart cheapies and grandmas "real" flowers. Sigh. They just get older and more high maintenance as the days go by....


Heaven help me.

How on earth did you do her hair? Man, I'm just going to send my kid to your house everyday to get ready. Maybe then she wouldn't look like an orphan! Seriously a cutie!

Hiatts said...

I should have paid you to do Avery's hair for the recital, Ady looks like she's ready for the red carpet! So Beautiful. It was such a treat to watch!

Lance and Mandy said...

That hair is perfect!

Amy Johnson said...

Oh so cute! She is so freaking tiny! I loved it! I wish I could have been there in person, but thanks for at least videoing it!

Dustin and Shelli Chambers said...

She is adorable, totally a natural! And you know you love it,the hair, the make up, the outfit, too! They have to love the spotlight or it's not worth it! And I know about the flowers. Kennedy hints to her daddy DAYS before any performance, big or small. Good thing she doesn't know the difference between roses and carnations...

Morrells said...

Now I know why I don't have girls! I could never do their hair that c-u=t-=e! Traeson helped me type that word! Your such a good mom to get her flowers even if grandma's were better! ha ha! I can't believe how fast they get big!

Ballard Family said...

So cute! I love watching that age dance it is so cute and Hilarious. Taya's age actually knows the dances now and although is is fun to see them get better it's just not nearly as entertaining! I need you to come show me one of these days how to get video's on my blog I'm a retard and can't figure it out!

Candace said...

How funny was that recital? Seriously? I couldn't stop laughing. Adyson was so cute and she was gorgeous. Great job on the hair.
Lillian had so much fun. She asked me why Adyson had so many flowers and she just had one. I told you she would notice!

Eileen said...
