Easter Morning {2013}

they can't stand waiting to run downstairs to find their baskets....

the bunny ate his carrots!

the hunt begins!

the bunny left Pet Shop Teensies in their eggs instead of candy thank goodness!
frittata, fruit, and coffee cake for breakfast and then off to church...

A Midsummer Night's Dream {opening night}

Tonight was the big night!!

Jeffrey brought Lanie(MB's American Girl) with her homemade fairy wings to watch her. :)
I couldn't take pictures during the show but tomorrow I can get some during official picture time.

Mary Beth and Caleigh with their beautiful flowers!

Her brothers were so proud of her!  They really, really loved the production too!

The ballet was at the historic downtown Fargo Theater- so cool to see it on the marque in bright lights at night!  MB thought she was "big time!"
You were fantastic Mary Beth!!
We love you so much.
Now... just two more shows tomorrow!

backstage before the show

isn't she the cutest little fairy in the whole world??? :)

she didn't even seem nervous- but I was!! ha!

A Midsummer Night's Dream {dress rehearsal}

MB and her good friend Caleigh ready to rehearse at 10am!

 Dress rehearsal went great - I snuck some pictures of course!
Mary Beth is so excited for opening night tonight- she has worked so hard and long for this!
She was happy to find out that our neighbors (who always watched Bella and now watch Boo for us when we are out of town) are coming to see her tonight.  She really was disappointed no family could come this weekend but a couple of her other friends are coming tomorrow and of course we will be there for every show! :)
 I can't wait to see what I know will be an amazing ballet-
with an amazing tiny ballerina dancing as a woodland fairy!
Break a leg Mary Beth!
