Well... Hello, there! It's been awhile, hasn't it? We've been doing so much (and I've been taking so many pictures!), and I feel completely overwhelmed about catching up. So I decided to start with the most recent, and hope to work my way back.
In any case, here are pictures of Hannah's dance recital. These are for you, Grandma.
The recital was on Saturday. Hannah has been very excited about it for weeks to come.
The ballet was a story of two little girls who fell asleep in a candy shop, and awoke in the magical land of sweets. Each class portrayed a different kind of candy. There was cotton candy, lemon drops, red hots, and Hannah's class were lollipops.
Their tap dance was to Shirley Temple's "On the Good Ship Lollipop."
Hannah's favorite part? That they danced with actual lollipops!
I mean, look at that thing! I'd be excited too, wouldn't you?
The recital was at the Clarence Brown Theater at the University of Tennessee. It all felt very grown-up to be in a "real" theater.
On the car ride home, Jonathan and I told Hannah that she had done a good job. She said, "I am very proud of myself."
And not to be forgotten is the prima ballerina in training, Miss Lydia. I think she's just about ready for the stage, don't you?
