Last year, Emerson's costume was so sweet, little girlish, yet still elegant in a little girl way. We put her hair in a bun and she got to wear a little bit of makeup (which she LOVES to look forward to) and our sweet girl was adorable performing her ballet dance on stage.
So this year, when she came home with her costume (again, I had no idea what it was going to look like), I was, umm, a little less than thrilled. The costume itself wasn't so bad, it was the neon pink wig. I know that really probably isn't a terrible thing, but I guess I just pictured my sweet girl looking a little more... sweet!
However, my thrilledness (I know, not a word) went up a notch or two, though, when I saw how absolutely tickled and excited she was that she was wearing this
By the way, I didn't ask her to pose once, she can just be a little dramatic sometimes (plus it really was kind of chilly outside!). :-)
Introducing Emerson, the neon pink ballerina!
P.S. Her recital was great! She did a beautiful job! Unfortunately we weren't allowed to take any pictures during the performance and we didn't get our video camera working in time (still learning how to use that part of our camera!), but trust me when I say those little girls were incredibly sweet in their neon tutus and wigs. :)
