Ever since Emmeline had her dance recital last year (2011), all Mabel has wanted to do is dance in her own recital. Mabel loves fancy, pretty things. She was excited about the beautiful costume, make up and flowers (maybe even more so then the dancing itself.) Well after a year of waiting, she finally got to participate in her own recital on May 19. She looked beautiful and she did a great job. Here are some videos of her ballet and tap dances. These were actually filmed at the dress rehearsal and neither are quite as good as they were at the actually recital, but you get the idea. Also, Mabel participated with Brett in the daddy/daughter dance. This year they danced to "My Girl" and it was so sweet. Besides the bouquet of flowers I got for Mabel after the recital, the daddy/daughter dance was definitely the highlight for her. She loved everything about it including the special extra practices they had together. One night Brett even took her out for ice cream after the practice. :) The daddy/daughter video is horrible and shaky. I wasn't in a good place for filming. Also, Mabes and Brett are in the back and there are moments when you cant see Mabel. But it is still sweet and you get an idea of the overall feeling of the dance. I didnt take any video of Em and Bretts dance and I have regretted it ever since. So even though it is not great, I have included the daddy/daughter dance video here.
Mabes pants are a little to long in her tap dance and she keeps pulling them up. oops. But yeah, it doesnt get much cuter then this!! :)
