My Pretty Ballerinas

Next week, Drew starts his new session of gymnastics and the girls are switching to beginner tap/ballet.  We have been getting ready and purchasing their outfits.  They got their ballet slippers (and yes, they are slippers.  I called them shoes and Izzie quickly corrected me that they are *ballet slippers*!) and tap shoes from Grandma L. for their birthday.  The package showed up in the mail the other day and we had to get them out and try them on.  I tried to get a good picture of the girls, but they were too busy dancing to stand still.  I have no idea why I didn't just switch to video and record them, but I got some seriously cute pictures of my girls having a little dance party.

not certain what Izzie is going for here...

then onto their tap shoes.

 they tried so hard to stand still for me
 but when you are wearing tap shoes...

 you just gotta dance!

I love these girls and I love how excited they are for dance class to start!


  1. How exciting and completely precious! Ashley and Reagan are starting tap/ballet on Monday and I'm nervous that Ashley won't behave! But they're just so darling I hate to wait til they're any older. Good luck with all your kids and starting new activities!

  2. When you are wearing dance shoes---DANCE!

    Love it!

  3. These dancing pics are sooo cute! (I haven't popped in here for ages, so I'm having a great time catching up and seeing how your kids have grown)
