Anna Riley's first ballet recital

Anna Riley had her first ballet recital last Saturday.  She did so good!  I was really nervous that she would get up there and cry because she has been going through a stage since she was home with me over spring break.  If she had of that would have been ok, because they are little and it is very overwhelming but she was so excited!   It helped that we had just been to see the play, Little Mermaid and we talked about how she would be up on the big stage.  They suggested that everyone wear makeup so that their little faces didn't flush under the lights so AR was thrilled to get to play in my makeup twice for dress rehearsal and for the big day!  The Bama Theater was a packed house and she did well under the pressure because it was the best I had seen her do her dance.  We couldn't take pictures inside and I mainly videoed at dress rehearsal but here are a few before and after.
