Hi my sweet blog friends! I hope you all have had a wonderful weekend. It was very busy with our concert but (and a big BUT) the girls did SOOOO good. After dropping them off back stage, Brad and I took our seats & were waiting ever so patiently for them to dance. My hands were all clammy and I was shaking with nerves for them. It was their first performance on stage for over 500 people. It was packed with people. Lizzi danced first, she was the queen bee leading out her little dancers. Me….when I saw her, I burst out crying!!! Didn’t see that coming. Tessa was in the second half of the concert and yes, tears again flowing like a river down my cheeks. I was soo proud of them. They didn’t miss a beat and did so well. Scroll down for a few more photos of my little ballet dancers.

Waiting back stage. Still can’t get over them having makeup on their faces! And yes, it honestly took me hours to put it on them. Mascara was a NIGHTMARE!!! & those red lips, I can’t tell  you how many times I had to reapply.
