Tonight's the Night

Recital night was super exciting!  Both Blake and Taylor got to perform.  It was on Sunday, so Billy was at church and the kids and I were home, getting rested and ready for the big night!  Taylor got her hair curled and her make up done...she didn't really want pictures, or a big fuss made.  Blake just showered, got dressed, and then helped me with Tay.   

even Daddy pitched in to help!

it's hard work....being a star!
Aunt Sissy, Aunt Susie, Billy and I, all piled into the auditorium to watch the show. No sooner than it all began, I started to cry...happy tears. It was so adorable and emotional, knowing how many months that has gone into this one 3 minute performance. 

I dropped her in the dressing room, before the show,
with all the other performers...she was cool with
it and happy to stay there.  They got to watch
the show on a tv, as it went along!

Right before Blake's act, just like last year...I got shaking nervous.  I really can't believe that he, with only two other boys, can get up on stage in front of hundreds of people and dance!!!  I was so proud of him, that I just watched him and cried.  I asked him after the show, if he was nervous up there, and he just said, "no...why would I be?"  Really!??!?!? 

Jake was one of the hip hoppers and his sis, Katie
Before Taylor's dance, I panicked as well!  I saw her little shadow walk out on stage and couldn't breathe...she just lined up and danced her dance...for the first time ever in front of all these people and without the teacher to que or the mirror to see!!!  My little dancer girl did it!!  I am sooo proud!  When she came out from backstage, she was so worn out...she didn't say a word, just showed me her trophy and was ready to leave.  I think we were all ready to many emotions can wear ya out!
