Taylor has been taking a ballet class this fall and loves it!!! She got to perform before the Nutcracker and especially loved getting to wear her costume and makeup.  She was seriously all grins and couldn't hold still, she was dancing around everywhere while waiting to perform!

With some of her classmates

With her friend Eliza who also happens to be in her preschool class

Grandma came to watch!

This was the final pose from her dance.

It was so hard to get a non-blurry photo of her because she just wanted to dance!

These next few photos crack me up!
Here we have CHEESE



After the little girls performed we got to watch the Nutcracker performed by the older girls.  I wasn't sure we would make it through the whole thing, but we did!

It was so fun to watch her watch the ballet!

Reese had to blow off some energy and dance in the aisle for a little bit

Taylor performed in the Skaters Waltz

Good job to all the dancers!!

Taylor's first Primary Program!!

Taylor had her first Primary Program in church.  She was nervous to go up and was shy through the first song, but then warmed up and sang her little heart out with a big smile.  They had the kids write their own parts and hers was "We keep the Word of Wisdom by not eating treats, and eat pizza and tomatoes." Hahaha we all got a good laugh out of that!  She even memorized her part and so when she went up to say it and her teacher leaned in to help her she said, "I can do it myself!" and then looked out and paused as she took in all the people looking at her.  I was praying so hard for her, hoping she could do it and she did!! She said it loud and clearly for everyone to hear.  It sure made my momma heart proud!!!  And I of course teared up multiple times throughout all the sweet messages and songs.  Kids are so pure and it touches my heart when I think of the love their Father in Heaven must have for them!

It was just a little bright outside

So proud of my sunbeam!!!

Super Girls!!

We picked up some superhero costumes last year after Halloween and the girls have recently rediscovered them and wore them for like a week straight!  Everywhere we went I had two superhero protecting me!  I felt pretty safe and they made everyone smile.

Superheroes shop at Costco!
