Once Upon a Dream... the performance of a lifetime

Rachel here.  Saturday was Reese's dance recital.  She did AWESOME.  She didn't seem to be the slightest bit nervous and was soooooooooooooo excited to get a trophy at the end... she could have cared less about anything else. :)  Dress rehearsal was Friday evening and that's where these top photos come in.  I knew it would be impossible to get decent photos/video (which I'll upload later) during the actual performance, so I loaded up the night before.
The weather was beautiful the day of the recital, so we attempted to get a few shots outside before showtime.  Thank you to Grandma and Grandaddy for coming and for Grandpa and Pearl (who drove a total of about 10 hours for 3 minutes of preschool shenanigans!) for making it to the big show!
The show was an absolute hit, and I think we all enjoyed ourselves.  Emma Grace fell asleep before the show even started and woke up about 1/2 way through... missing her sister's performance of course. ;)  Berkley nursed/slept the entire time, so I was actually able to enjoy the entire show.
Here's little miss performer herself with her trophy and flowers from Mommy and Daddy.
Emma Grace was so excited to see Reese, she ran right up to her and tried to give her a hug... it was sweet... Reese was less than thrilled... perhaps embarrassed?
Ms. Rebecca, Reese's teacher, and a friend from her class.
Next year Emma Grace joins the production... Lord help us all. :)
