The Monster Mash

Ava's dance studio celebrated Halloween tonight with trick-or-treating, games, goodies and a little program. Ava's class was one of those chosen to perform and she couldn't have been happier. Not only did she get to wear her Halloween costume (Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz), but she got to dance in it. Here's video I took of the performance. Ava was pretty funny. You'll notice near the beginning she got distracted by the people who were watching in the room above the studio. At another point she kinda zones out in her own little Ava world. But hey, she had fun and I think she did a great job!!

Ava has made two little dancing buddies, Isabelle (the lion) and A.J. (dressed up like Pebbles). The three are so cute, always waiting for each other when it's time to change from ballet to tap shoes, chatting with each other before and after class and talking about each other throughout the week. She and A.J. always partner up when it's time to do so, and the two giggle and smile the entire time. It's adorable!

Daddy, Jax, Uncle Dusty, Joni, Ethan and Avery all came along to watch our tiny dancer. Jax clapped excitedly for his sister, shouting, "YAY! Aba!" (which is how he says her name). And Ethan was mesmerized, I don't think I've ever seen such a busy boy stand so still! I'm glad he liked it because Ava was so excited to show him her dance routine!
