Dance Conventions

Aaaaah, dance conventions.  I believe they are equal parts athletic event, celebrity sighting, girls' weekend, and child abuse.  Definitely a lot going on at these events.  Here are our cuties resting between convention classes...
Cille taking a photo with one of her amazing instructors...
Stella doing the same...I am sure these people are "dance famous," but I have no idea who they are...
Cille performing her solo to "Don't Rain on My Parade!"


Stella performing her solo "Diva"...

Dance friends are the best friends! 
My personal fave, Liz Imperio.  She is dance famous and I know her! Double bonus!  
Group photo after awards...
All dressed up and ready for solos...
Cille's spotlight moment in the group dance...
The best junior girls ever...
I was never this flexible on my best day...


The sass! Hard to believe she is only 11 years old...


Cousins!  (Distant-haha!)


We had such an amazing second year on pro company! We learned, we grew, we wore out dance shoes, and we built the sweetest friendships.  Can't wait to see what next convention season brings!

Mother-Son Dance

Damon and the girls have attended the Father-Daughter Dance for years, so Watts and I felt that it was high time we got our own date night.  We got tickets to the Mother Son Dance benefitting Our Lady of the Lake Children's Hospital and got gussied up for our big night out on the town.  I think Watts wore slightly more makeup than I did...
The "dance" featured lots of activities for the boys to enjoy...
As well as lots of sugar for us both...
We were able to have a professional portrait taken together...
And we took a selfie on our way in...
Turns out Watts was way more interested in carnival games than he was in actually dancing with his mother.  Shocking, I know.  We never actually danced (which was fine with me because I am a real Baptist), but Watts had a great time and said afterwards that it was his favorite thing ever.  It was nice to spend some time one on one with my favorite boy in the world!
