Cinderhythm Dress Rehearsal

Today the girls had their dress rehearsal.  It literally was spaced out just perfectly so that when we got there around 11:00 for Harper's dance, there wouldn't be enough time to get back home before Handley's other two dances this afternoon and evening.  SO, we just made a day of it.  I've been sick so I know that if I had been feeling better it would have been even more fun for me. The girls had a ball though and can't wait for this weekend's big shows!  Gigi and Papa were so sweet to watch Hudson today so that he wouldn't have to be there all day.  

The show is a Cinderella theme and I've been told by numerous people that their studio really puts on a great production. I could tell just by the way the dress rehearsal was run today that they have it down to a science.  Harper's class is Cinderella and she looked precious in her costume and I was so proud of her for getting up on stage and dancing her very best.  She seemed to be having a great time and was probably most excited about getting to wear make-up and her costume.

After she danced we met up with my cousin, Bryn, who works right where we were and went to lunch with her during one of the breaks we had.  She also come over for one of our other breaks and took the girls for milkshakes while I ran some stuff to my car.  She was so sweet to keep walking over to where we were and we loved getting to hang out with her today!

For Handley's ballet dance they portray Lucifer, the cat, and she was SO excited about dancing on the stage in her costume.  Her jazz was next and they are the "Glass Slipper Girls."  It is a super fast dance, but it's so cute and lots of fun.

It took us an hour and 1/2 to get back to Gigi and Papa's in the rush hour traffic this evening.  Not a great way to end the day, but the girls were exhausted and both ended up taking a little nap on the way.  Now it's time to pack everything up and pray I get all of their costume pieces to the new house over the next few days.  Tomorrow I will officially start moving things in!

Wow - that was a crazy day, but the girls sure look precious in their costumes!

I know you are counting down the seconds until the big move. I smile every time I think about it. You have been such a great sport during this, but I know it has been exhausting.
