Our Jitterbug

Ellie had her first Jitterbugs dance recital this weekend.  It may have been one of the cutest things I have ever seen.  She was so excited and practiced all day Friday.  Michael was really supportive and kept trying to encourage her about it.  He was happy that it was on a Saturday so he got to go watch.  For some reason he thought he was going to miss it because of school.  Meemaw, Nanny, Pappa, and Ali were all able to come watch.  She has a pretty big fan club.  Somehow I forgot to charge the digital camera battery so I only got a few good pics with the camera and had to use the ipad for the rest.  There goes that Mom of the Year Award I was working on.  ;)

The first pic below is right when the curtain opened.  I thought she looked like she was going to cry, but once the music started she jumped right in. 
These are the only pics from the other performances.  I couldnt figure out how to zoom on the ipad so they aren't that great.  She is on the front row third from the left. 
My parents brought flowers to give to her after the performance.  I think she was a little overwhelmed. 
And last but definitely not least here is a little video clip from one of the dances.  She is still third from the left on the front row.  Wasn't crazy about the song, but the dance is adoreable!  **If you can't see it below here is the you tube link
Talk to ya soon,
