Emma's First Dance Recital

Emma had her first dance recital last Saturday. The performance was held at the Heritage House in Bountiful, a retirement center for the elderly. It was jam packed with family, friends, and residents who live at the home. Emma was excited all morning and couldn't wait to go. We put her hair in curlers the night before and she loved how curly her ponytail was when we took them out. Her favorite part about her costume was the make-up. She LOVED wearing mom's lipstick and eye shadow. She even held still long enough for me to put on a little mascara. Emma was excited Aunt Whitney was in town so she could watch the performance. Jake and I were a little nervous about Emma having stage fright. She can get pretty shy around people she doesn't know. It helped watching some of the older girls go before her because by the time it was her turn, she was ready to perform and she did great. Her and two other girls were leading the group. We were so proud of her. Great job, Emma! We love you.

Emma's favorite person in the whole world, Susi Mabey (our neighbor), came to cheer her on. She even brought her a rose, which Emma wouldn't let go of the rest of the day. (It's still in a vase in her room!)
