Recital Weekend (Ballet)....

Thanks for all your well wishes.  Lexi felt a bit bad for a couple of days but bounced right back....YAY.  Maybe she was just exhausted after the recital weekend.  These pictures are from ballet.  They danced to Carry Your Candle.  I still need to get her dressed in her costumes and take better (still) pictures.  You can click on any collage to enlarge.  
I have to tell you a funny story.  The teacher got battery operated candles to turn on and do the dance with.  BAD idea.  They were glass.  About seven of them got broken before she gave up, went to the store and bought real candles and wrapped the top with a sparkly pipe cleaner.  This is during rehearsal and at one point Lexi gives her candle to another little dancer that goes off stage.  When that dancer comes back on stage she is supposed to give Lexi her candle back, but forgot to bring it, so Lexi just pretended she had it.  You know.......the show must go on......  For the three actual performances, it all went just fine with no forgotten candles!  During this dance Lexi has a small solo part and the next collage is during that part.
 
She is a gorgeous dancer and such fun to watch.  I'll show you Lyrical pictures next.

Lovely photos ...
I never did get any of my d when she was actually doing the dancing. Her studio didn't let us take pics ... they liked to sell their videos to us.
