Ballerina In The Making

My friend Dawn and I want to start the girls in dance class this fall. As far as I can tell, this is gonna be a big hit with Her Rubiness. We went to observe a class yesterday morning and they ended up letting them don some tap shoes and join in! Rubes was really into it and didn't even care that I was behind a closed door. Going to check out a few more dance studios in the area and make our decision.

Next we hit the Danskin outlets in Lahaska to buy all the ballerina gear she will need. Luckily, Dawn was just there the day before and told me of the sale they are having. INCREDIBLE! Leotards for $1.99! Tights for .99 cents! 70% off everything else! It was shopping heaven and Ruby was loving her new leotards. (This all before I saw the Gymboree outlet! Let's just say, it was a GOOD shopping day!)  But her favorite, of course, were the SHOES. Cute little ballet slippers for only $7.50! 

When we got home I  (I mean, SHE) was so excited to try them all on. But she was the excited one when she got to put her shoes on. Just started dancing around and begged to watch her Barbie in the Nutcracker movie.
A little peak at the miss dancing all the while clutching her Barbie DVD.

                                      

Mesmerized with the Nutcracker. How sweet will it be to take her to see the live, on-stage version this year? Oh, so many wonderful firsts. Each more magical than the last.

So adorable. I love the video of her spinning. She is growing up so fast. Have a great weekend.

Oh how cute! Little Miss Ruby is going to be quite the ballerina!

What a cutie pie ballerina! Is Ruby getting a little belly on her or is it just the angle? Either way - love it! And what excellent bargain shopping.

oh so jealous of that danskin sale!!!

Hayden is obsessed with her leotard too!! Holy smokes if she had the shoes she would never take them off....just like the boots. I think our girls were cut from the same cloth:)

Can't wait to hear about her dancing stories.

Thanks, girls! Gonna be fun to see her taking dance. I'll probably cry like a baby the first time I see her do a recital. LOL.

Jess, she's actually always had a little belly but you notice it more in the elastic waisted skirt.

It's the CUTEST thing ever to see all those little ones do the ballerina moves!! I just LOVE to see that. Luckily they all make DVD's, so you can watch it over and over!!
