Emma had her first dance recital a few weeks ago. She’s done the dance class through the college last summer, but this was the first time their was a recital involved. Since last August to this April Emma was tapping up a storm and performing pas de bourrees for an hour every Thursday.
Emma’s favorite part was getting to wear mascara. Daddy was not as exactly as thrilled about his 5-year-old daughter wearing blush, eye shadow, mascara, lip stick, lip gloss over the lip stick and body glitter. Emma was such a beautiful little ballerina but now we’re trading in our tap shoes for a t-ball bat and she’s going to have to sweet talk Daddy into letting her wear mascara for her games! Something tells me body glitter is definitely out of the question. . .
Emma had to wear “body glitter” for the dance recital and boy did she have a lot of body glitter. We finally got all the body glitter off of her three days after the recital.

Best friend Keeley and Emma after the recital. Emma was so excited she got flowers. Between that and the mascara, I’m pretty sure this was the best day ever!
The little ballerinas receiving their trophies. Add this to the mascara and flowers and this also added to Emma’s “Best Day Ever.”
