Last night, Ava's ballet class put on their first recital of the year. They did a mini Nutcracker Suite and it was adorable! I'm pretty sure than nothing holds a candle in the cuteness department to 4, 5, and 6 year olds trying to be graceful.

Ava's class was the Chinese tea, complete with little paper fans. She had so much fun (and not an ounce of nerves, thank you very much!).

Our favorite book lately has been The Little Ballerina, which is about a little girl who is preparing for her first recital. Afterward, she goes out to dinner with her family for a cheeseburger and a chocolate milkshake, so naturally, Ava wanted to do that.

Thanks to everyone who attended for making the evening so special for Ava!
