Olivia's Recital

Olivia had her first ballet recital a couple weekends ago!! She looked absolutely adorable in her costume and ballerina bun :-) The recital was two days & she was in a total of 4 dances including the finales. I am so proud of her for getting up there and being so brave at such a young age. Her class is made up of girls ranging in ages from 3-5, but she is one of the youngest girls. Our families came to the Saturday performance & a little celebration party afterwards that we had at our house. On Sunday, my sister Katie & I went with Brooklyn to Olivia's recital. Unfortunately, Brian is away training and missed the recital (which completely devastated him when he found out that he was going to miss it), but I ordered the professional taping of the show so he can watch it when he gets home.
Olivia loved the whole recital experience from getting to wear makeup (so their little faces didn't get washed out by the stage lights) to being handed flowers from everyone afterwards. For those of you who don't already know, Olivia has quite the vocabulary (sometimes Brian and I are speechless with her unique choice of words). Before heading to the recital she requested that after she performed on stage I would shout "Bravo Olivia" (her exact words lol). So, we were all yelling "Bravo Olivia" at her request & I decided to get her a big cookie cake with "Bravo Olivia" written in frosting on it for dessert.

These are pictures I took before Saturday's recital of our little ballerina....
