Pickle's Ballet Recital

This past fall, right after Pickle was potty trained, she expressed a huge interest in ballet but I thought she was too young to start. Just for fun, called a local ballet school and was surprised to hear that they start as young as three--so I signed her right up!

And she has LOVED it!! She goes every week and never misses a lesson, plus the neverending amount of cute ballet outfits and kept her very happy (and us in the Poor House).

A couple weeks ago, the session ended with a very over-the-top ballet recital that featured the whole school in very ornate costumes and dramatic music. It was right up Pickle's alley! Apparently she loves performing on stage!

Here are a few pics of her Big Night:

Here she is dressed and ready to go. I realized this looks very "Tiaras and Tantrums" but she had to wear makeup for the stage lights. As you can see, she loves makeup...


Here she is at home before her performance with Gooser:

And here's one of Gooser because he looks so handsome!

And here she is after her performance with her bouquet:

Finally, here is the actual performance! Pickle is the one that barges out out of the line and ends up third from the right. She's also the one that shouts out the line "Quiet!." It's pretty cute...

P.S. I know I keep harping on how irritating Blogger has been lately--but I'm really hoping someone can help me with this! When I upload (download? I can never get that straight...) photos and try to arrange them in the post, I used to be able to click on the pic and then drag it down if I put the cursor on the "down arrow" of the little window. Now it won't do it so it's nearly impossible (and way too time-consuming) to get the pic where I want it. Any advice??

I am not sure how to help you as this has never happened to me on Blogger.

Anyway, that video was just precious. It looks and sounds as though she loves ballet as much as my little Cate. She looked beautiful in her little costume!

She is BEAUTIFUL :) I love that our girls love dance. The recitals are one the best parts :)

I am so glad that you're back to blogging!
What I do with my pictures is when I'm composing my post, I click on "Edit HTML" and then cut and paste the HTML code of the pictures to where I want them to be.
I think there's another way to compose also, but I'm not sure how to do that. Sorry!
Pickle is getting SO big! She is adorable as always, and Gooser too.

I have the same problem when uploading pics. The only solution I've been able to come up with is decide what order I want my pics in before uploading them, and then upload them in the reverse order. "That which is first shall be last," so on and so forth, and something about a holy hand grenade... But yeah, that's how I deal with the idiocy of Blogger

Look at that prima ballerina! And Gooser in his jacket, looking all dapper! :)

For me, I usually write what I'm going to say (knowing which pictures I'm going to use... then put my curser where I want the picture & then upload it... I dont have any problems doing that at all.

I have never had this problem, but sometimes, if I am moving an image a long way in the post I "cut & paste".

Nice to see you back in the harness, missed all your adventures.
