Emma's recital went well last night. She was so excited all day and couldn't wait to perform (especially since her two cousins were coming to watch her.) Emma had me replay her dress rehearsal video over and over and showed me each step and told me what she was supposed to do. She loved getting her hair and make-up done and has now fallen in-love with mascara. Yikes! Her two dances went great and she loved being in the spotlight. She had a hard time watching all the girls before her because she kept wanting it to be her turn. Thanks to all the family for coming out and sitting through two hours of little girls' dances. Emma loved having you there to cheer her on. Good job, Emma! We love you.
All the girls in Emma's class (3 of them are sunbeams with her in our ward.)
Emma and her dance teacher, Stephanie Russell. (Steph owns the Jazz Studio, used to be a Utah Jazz dancer, teaches dance classes at the studio, and teaches classes at Gold's Gym... she's awesome and Emma loves her.)
Emma with her uncle Pete and aunt Mal. Thanks for coming, guys!

Emma with her two cousins, Hannah and Isabelle (Hannah had a dance recital tonight so they were able to watch each other perform on different nights. Hannah's a great dancer, too!)
