Today’s the big day

Today’s the big show…

Well today Ella had her dance recital. It was so exciting and we were so happy to have family and friends come to see her. She was so cute and grown up. I got a bit teary eyed at the rehersal but held it together today :)

Here she is right after the show. Monty gave her purple flowers. He wanted to get her purple ones. He was so excited to give them to her. We were walking back to the van and Ella turns around to him and says, “Monty, thank you for the flowers me love them.” Monty went on to tell her that he wanted purple ones for her and she said, “Me love pink, blue………and purple flowers”.

Her dance cake. We were able to sing Happy Dance Day to you! :)

It was a lovely day. Thanks so much for all that was able to make it. I still can’t believe how fast she is growing.

    What a cute picture of Ella and Allie. I also love the cake, how special! I know you were worried that Ella wouldn’t do her routine out there on the big stage but she did, and she was just too cute. But I wouldn’t expect anything less from the daughter of a former dance professional!
