After three long hours in the car we made it just in time for Eden's recital. I signed up to be the backstage mom and I am still recovering from that nonsense....Anywho....Here are some backstage photos...(Due to all the adorableness, it is impossible for me to make these pictures smaller)
The four hour ordeal just about sucked the life out of me, but it was so worth it to see Eden do her ballet performance to "Thank Heaven for Little Girls" at the end of the song, all the dads went up to carry the girls off the stage...so adorable! I didn't get very good pictures of them on stage due to the "no flash" rule, which Jessica R. totally disregarded, so she probably has better pictures than me.
And I'm telling ya, when it comes to hip shakin' my kid totally rocks!!!!! During the "hippy hippy shake" tap dance she stole the show with those hips. What can I say, the latin blood is some powerful stuff.
Overall it was a long night but I know Eden felt like a superstar. She had lots of fans there, besides me, Aric and Maya...my mom, my sister and four of her cousins came to support her. Plus there were other families there that we know and love so it was a great experience for her.
