Twinkle Toes - K's 1st Ballet Recital

After 16 weeks of Sunday morning ballet classes, Kapri finally had her very first ballet recital! The outfit chosen by Miss Sarah for all the little girls to wear was just adorable...K love it!

Invite I made in PicMonkey & emailed to our family:

We took a few pics of her that morning as we were leaving... of course she wanted to stand by the first rose of the season....

IN the dirt....

IN her nice new ballet outfit & white shoes.


She's such a little poser sometimes!

The picture she's holding is something I saw on Pinterest awhile back and we made a few months ago... the tutu portion is her hands in pink paint, and the leotard part is a pink patterned piece of scrapbook paper. Then I hot-glued on some ruffle ribbon in the middle, and some loose pears to act as a 'faux' necklace. The little piece next to the pearls is actually where some pink paint dripped, so I cut out 2 little hearts, folded them down the middle and put it on like a 3-D heart to cover up the paint spill.

It really is adorable... I should get a little shadow box for it & hang it on her wall :-)

Then we arrived & took our seats...we had both grandmas, a grandpa, & an auntie in attendance with us - so I think K was a little shy & put-off by all the extra attention on her...but she did really well, and is improving with her slight case of 'stage fright' that she's had for the past year & a half or so. But she's really blossoming...little by little!

....then headed off to lunch to celebrate her job-well done...and since it was also Cinco de Mayo, we ate at a little Mexican food place: "Garcias" - $14.99 buffet brunch WITH unlimited champagne/mimosas...amazing deal!
