Dance, Dance, Dance!

This was the weekend...the girl weekend. The weekend that I don't spend at the ballpark with my hair in a ponytail :) Well...Saturday, at least! Revue 2013!!

The girls were so excited to finally dance in "the big show".

 They were true to their personalities. Gracie was completely in her element and loved every minute of the stage. I truly believe she thinks the whole event is about her! Wesleigh was busy trying to make sure she remembered every step and executed it exactly right! I love how different they are. The crowd, however, seems to appreciate Gracie's style of dance a little more. She is definitely a crowd favorite and as we walked through the crowd afterward, we got lots of smiles and compliments. You can see their different styles in these pics :)

The other themes for the daddy dances were Motown and Annie. SO cute!!

 After the show, the girls were thrilled to get flowers. revue 2013-8792 Grandparents: revue 2013-8798

All my boys were happy to attend and support their sisters. They love to see what they do. They did, however, get a little antsy as we got into the 4th hour!! Especially since Braden had played 2 baseball games starting at 8:00 that morning! Next year, they will split the show into two :)

I just love these boys. My girls don't know how good they have it. Their brothers will do anything for them!! revue 2013-8805

I almost forgot. This might be my favorite pic! I happened to be able to see this backstage wing from my seat. Don't you know...I spent the whole dance before the girls' watching to see if I could get a shot of one of mine. LOVE how she's watching those big girls!! revue 2013-8724

Oh myyyy I was waiting for these!!! FIRST OFF...the costumes are to AWESOME!!!! Gracie of course tickled me to pieces!! I have to say...when Bre danced (the girls has WAYYY TO MUCH ENERGY NOW...she is in gymnastics now) the recital was BRUTALLY LONG...yes 4.5 hours. I thought that was wayyy to long and by the end of the night, we had more kids in tears than they had kids in tutu's!!! Of course, Bre was still going happily along, but I was DEAD ON MY FEET!!! It was literally an ALL DAY THING!!! So glad that your "school of dance" decided to break it up next year. I wish they would take the same initiative here locally. Thank you for sharing such beautiful pictures and I agree...the girls are LUCKY to have such adoring brothers!!

Such cuties!!!! Their different personalities crack me up - the look of concentration on Wesleigh's face is precious, Miss Gracie's BIG dance moves will be legendary :)

It's such a shame that Gracie doesn't have more of a personality isn't it?!?! ;)

She is such a riot!!

Lindy D. said...

I'd like to see your brother and Gracie Joy have a solo together. Wouldn't that be something?

Wesleigh is pure perfection. And those sweet doting brothers will all make great dads some day.
