living the life. enjoying the journey

This was Sifan's first dance recital :)  She was sooo excited but didn't really understand what we meant by recital  even after her 2nd dance she kept asking when we were going to the recital.....dancing is what she does all the time ;)
Their first routine was a tumbling act to Lion King's "I Just Can't Wait To Be King" 
Next a little "Skipity Do Da".  The girls have been BEGGING to wear this costume.  I had to hide it in my closet.
A little "Get on the Bus" from the Doodlebops show.  This outift reminded me of the CRAZY get up that we had my senior year of Accents (flag corp..whatever people call it).  We had these sequined silver skirts over full spandex suits...and we ripped the skirts off and danced with them...oh public schools...oy).  Anyhow this is called the alien baked potato look.  The girls giggled hysterically when they had to put this on.
The last act was a circus tumbling act.  In the bathroom an older lady told Sifan that she liked her hair.  Sifan looked the lady right in the eye very very seriously and said, "this is not my REAL hair".  She repeated herself several times because she did NOT want anyone to think she would really have hair like this.

It was a bit crazy with 4 costume and 3 hair changes.  We forgot the white tights so T had to run all the way home but by the time he got back I had already borrowed some from some sweet girls in the bathroom (THANK YOU!!!!).  It made the recital go very very fast but we were all sad to miss so many of our friends dance :(. 
Videos to follow later :)
