|The ladies before their performance...Ella is the |
on the far right, last one sitting on the bench.
|Ella's in the middle. They were warming up.|
|I've said it before and I'll probably say it again, I don't get this whole "dance business" but I understand happy.|
And this kid's happy.
|We went with a couple friends to Chipotle between the |
performance and the awards ceremony. Ella's on the right,
her friend is in the middle and her friend's sister is
on the left.
|The lovelies after their performance. Ella is third from the left|
|She is the dancing |

|Her whole group plus the poor girl who broke her arm a week prior to the show and her instructor.|
Ella's on the far right.

Recently, Chase had his 4th birthday party. Everyone knows it's just not a party until your cousin promotes her mani/pedi business at your house and makes you the first customer. She was pretty stoked that she earned $5.15. Score!
|Yes, you can choose any of the colors...|
|You gotta sit super still...|
|Uncle Jeffy, I said you need to zip it and turn around so I can polish you already...|
|Pretty and smelly-licious. It's grape scented polish!|

(Enters room) Ella: "Why does Luke just eat, eat, EAT all the time! He's such a pig!"
(Sighs) Me: "Why do you care so much what he's eating? You worry about you."
(Rolls eyes) Ella: "He's already had 2 applesauces, a popsicle, and NOW he's eating an ice cream!"
(Double sighs) Me: "I'm trying to chunk him up a little, Ella. He needs to gain a few."
(Walks into room) Luke (crumbs falling out his mouth): "Yeah, Ella, I gotta gain a few." *burp* "I'm too skinny. Hey what happened those cheetos from Tolly's yesterday?"
(Turns to me) Ella: "He's gross."
(Looks at floor) Me: "Get used to it."
**update: Since Luke came home from school today, he has eaten the previously mentioned 2 containers of applesauce, 3 popsicles, the ice cream drumstick, 2 tacos, a yogurt, an entire sleeve of saltines, and a fruit snack. He just asked what was next.

Finally, after 6 years of this ballet gig, I think I've finally got the hair thing down. I tried to look for pictures of the previous year's poor attempts at wrangling her hair but couldn't find any. Rest assured that it was bad.
Ella has her first ballet competition this weekend on Sunday and her regular recital is the Friday after that,
