Sugar Plum Fairy in the making...

It's official! We now have a Prima ballerina in the making! Ella was able to get fitted in her pointe shoes this past weekend. What a fun experience to watch! Brought back memories of my own experiences in ballet. She just beamed the entire time!

She had to try on a few pairs before she and her instructor, Melissa (LOVE her!) found one that fit her feet...

Gotta have those toe pads!!
Pre-releve....
Melissa is the BEST instructor!
En sousou!!
Full ensemble at home!
Just needs ribbons....
Sewing on her ribbons and elastic...

Almost done....
Ta-da!
Attitude....
Pose...
Contentment!
Strolling down memory lane...
Nutcracker, here we come!! But for now...our summer recital will bring Ella as the season of Winter...in her first "real" tutu!
