Costumes galore March 8, 2010

Filed under: Uncategorized — zellner @ 4:46 pm

This weekend was filled with wonderful things- but one thing we did alot of was get dressed up- in costumes that is.  Emma’s dance pictures were Friday.  I had to find black shoes for her costumes.  After MANY attempts to find the right shoe paint, I ended up just buying some new black ballet slippers.  She is ready to be “On the Farm”.


Then Olivia had a full day of dress up.  This is her first year to be in two dance numbers.  The first is a dinosaur dance.  Yes, she really looks like a dinosaur~


Then she changed into her cowgirl costume.  Thinking of that great quote,”Necesity is the mother of invention,” I had to figure out how to sew elastic on to the hat.  The girls were all so cute ready to tap to the country song,”I’m from the country and I like it that way.”


The day finished with a birthday party for one of the girls in Olivia’s class.  The party was at a place called Pinkalicious.  Each girl chose a costume, her hair and make up were done by the staff, and she participated in the “fashion show” .  Olivia and her friends had so much fun! Olivia left asking if she could have hers there.

 Olivia and the birthday girl! Happy birthday Kate.

    Great costumes! I loved when my daughter took dance in her early years. Alas, she gave it up after only a couple of years in her pursuit to become a Olympic gymnast. When she was in sixth grade, I told her it was time to give up the dream. She was already 5’6″ and would be growing more!
