As promised photos of tap outfit.
My clip was too big to upload on youtube. I'll figure it out later.

Another at home. She said " Mom! No close up! You'll see my boogers!" I had to show her that her boogs were not in the photo.
Can you believe the make up? I seriously don't know what those pageant moms are thinking when they do their little girls up like this and make them compete for beauty. Creepy. I mean, Carmella looks pretty but I just want to say it is wrong to encourage a 6 year old to wear make up and compete in beauty pageants. I only put this much on her because last time I didn't and she did look very washed out in her pictures.

At GA Tech.
We love the gloves best. The positioning and affixing to the head the hat was quite the learning curve. There are like 5,000 barrettes holding it in place.
Another close up. Again the make up. You can see it better in this picture. We had just reapplied the lipstick.
Waiting for their turn to rehearse.
Blurry on stage pictures.
I couldn't get the setting right with the stage lighting.
Carmella is the one on the very end.

I just like this one. At Lala's house-- in front of the irises.

I can't believe I forgot to include this when I first posted this but I just realized that I forgot to mention the reason for the shopping cart in the stage photo.

It is because their dance number is to Lost in the Supermarket by The Clash:
This just cracks me up. My little girl, who is 6, is doing a dance routine to a Clash song about being lost in a supermarket. It is all coming together for me. It is like she--and the other little girls are mocking me. Why would I think this? Well, because when Carmella was 3 and her teacher asked her what her mommy's job was she said: "to go to the grocery store." (Ryan's is to go to work.)

I guess I know what my theme song is now. What is yours?


  1. She's such a doll! I love the tap dancing outfits! Looks alot like the one I wore when I was six!

  2. Awwwww. Tell Carmella I liked her picture with the boogers :-)

  3. Aww, she looks so cute. You have adorable kids.

  4. She looks great. Frightening about the Clash song. And even more frightening about the fact that the recital outfits haven't changed THAT much in 30 years.

    I so need to dig up mine. People STILL make fun of me to this day.

  5. Have you seen the movie, "Little Miss Sunshine"???

    Favorite song, "Friends," by Elton John
