Our 2012 Recital!

Last night we had our 3rd recital. We actually had two last night. With 200 kids and 20 classes, having two was a must with all of the people who were there. We filled the middle school auditorium twice last night! I am going to start doing donation drives at our recitals because there are just so many people. Toys for Tots, Food bank, etc. We had close to 1,000 people there last night. 

Our new recital location was fabulous! We have moved up from the elementary school to the middle school. I think it was the perfect location and am really looking forward to December already for our next one. Our first recital was all of our 2-3 & 3-5 year old classes. They were "tutu" cute! All that tutu making paid off seeing all of them up there on stage. Here are some pictures :) Matt sat back stage with me and took photos and videos of each group. I was so thankful he did that. 

Whenever we have our recitals it is always a big reality check that, "whoa...I really do this as my job!" 
Matt and I went to Red Robin after and as usual, there were dance families there :) I love that. Seeing all the kids at Red Robin in their recital outfits. So cute!

{Another one of my 'since the beginning' kids, she's on our team too and we were so proud of her last night watching her in her ballet class :)}

I don't know what I would do without Matt helping me lately. I'm proud of our teamwork :)
He is the most supportive husband. I'm a lucky girl to have him in my life...
We had a great time last night. I liked having him backstage with me the whole time. It feels safe. Even I get a little nervous talking in front of everyone. More nervous about forgetting one of their routines. I loved having him next to me. Katie was with us too :)

Red Robin treats! ... I ate the whole thing by myself ... {yes, of course I would have shared, Matt was full}

I also had a yummy drink.

It was a great night.

Today was fun too :) PF Changs & The Hunger Games with my hubby. We got a gift card from my dance team for The Bellevue Collection. That was so so nice!
Then I went to Katie's for a girls night. Lots of fun this weekend :)
