A ballerina in the making...

12 mini Braids (8 times)

Lipstick application and re-application

All those braids tucked neatly under the mermaid wig (secured with an ace bandage)
Those precious braids helped to create this adorable Fairy look each and every time!


Flowers, flowers and more flowers - our Mantel is full
One Happy 8 year old Ballerina
All worn out...
Peter Pan was FANTASTIC! The show was amazing, Lauren did beautifully - Her little arms are so graceful it brings tears to my eyes thinking about it...
A great big thanks to all our friends and family who came out to see Peter Pan (planned and the surprises too!) and to "He" and Grams for keeping Hailey busy while Lauren and I were living in Never Land!
What a week!

Waaaa I missed Peter Pan. But much to the unknown delight of everyone in the audience, I stayed home and kept my pneumonia relapse contained.

I'm sure she was wonderful and you are a very proud mommy. More pics please.

The Bailey Family said...

Precious girl!!!!

I'm going to cry at every performance/little league game, you name it. I'm hopelessly sensitive.

Love the fairy hair.

Allison said...

Oh, Terra, she looked beautiful! I bet the ballet was amazing, especially with her in it!

Gorgeous! I love it. The exhaustion does hit fast doesn't it.

So glad the show went well. Congrats!

So beautiful! I want Karli to be just like her. She won't do dance class... I tried. But I plan to try again when she is 6. Has she always been outgoing and willing to perform in front of others?
