Visions of Sugar Plums....




My sweet ballerina showed off her stuff this weekend in her dance studio's annual presentation of The Nutcracker. Every year they allow the girls (students) from the studio ages 7 and up to audition for parts in the annual show.... and my Bella was picked to be Ribbon Candy in the Land of the Sweets... and of course a Snow Flake candle bearer.
This has become a yearly tradition for the past three years, and although it requires me to almost drag her to practice on saturday and sunday from the middle of October up until the week of the show (December 7th) and much complaining from her and sighing from me... and wishing that I would talk her out of it instead of encouraging her.... but Sunday showed that it all pays off.
The show was magnificent! ALL the students did an excellent job and I don't think the Boston Ballet holds a light up to the talent that was demonstrated.... ok, I'm a proud mom... and a little on the exagerrating side, but its my blog and I can.

So here are a few pics of the ballerina...




This is my favorite shot... I really don't know why, but I love it...


Here she's showing off for me because this was the final run through were we could take pics and she found me in the audience.... what a ham...


and here is a little snipit of video so you can see the talented Miss Isabel doing her thing...

Notice how she looks for the camera??? What a ham...


So this was the excitement for the weekend... run around to dress rehearsals, practice, run throughs... for this wonderful moment where my little ballerina could shine!

Awesome!! I'm jealous b/c Chloƫ had the opportunity to do the same thing, and we had to miss it. Hopefully next year. Your little one looks so beautiful!!
