This year, we celebrated the May birthdays in HG’s class (HG, Bella Marie, and Olivia) with a super sweet celebration at a candy store in Midtown called Sweet Noshings. Miss Balloony was there to do face painting- always a big hit- and then we walked down to Memphis Pizza Café for lunch. The weather was overcast and somewhat cool, although humid, so it was perfect for the girls to run inside/outside from candy to face painting and to eat outside at MPC.
We have such a great group of girls and families in HG’s class. Looking forward to celebrating many more birthdays with this crew!
I decided to get crafty this year, and Melissa helped me make these invitations. Miss Baloony was oohing and aahing over HG’s complexion and was saying, “Moisturize, moisturize, moisturize!” HG knew she was getting a compliment but was like, “Mama, what does that mean??”
After our soggy morning on the soccer field, we rushed home, ate a quick lunch, and HG took a bath. After a curling iron, lipstick, and some fairy dust, we had a beautiful ballerina transformation!
This was her class’s first time to have two outfits, one for tap to ‘Mamma Mia’ and one for ballet to ‘My Girl.’ They were both full of ruffles, big skirts, and GLITTER, so HG was in heaven. Mama was happy to a) not have to be responsible for dress changes backstage and b) not to have to do a bun. Everyone was happy!
As always, she was pumped to get flowers and have her grandparents there cheering her on. As we walked to the car, the sky looked dark and ominous. We jumped in the car, and as soon as we closed the door, the bottom literally fell out of the sky. A terrible rainstorm came through, but we were happy that her recital was done and we were dry! AND we had a special treat waiting on us at home that night…Hayes and Hastings came to spend the night with us!
Videos from practice early in the week… I have to say that all the moms panicked when we saw some of there performances, but we practiced at home during the week and were pleased to see that adrenaline kicked in during the real deal. They stepped up their game, knew their steps, and added a lot of sass. So cute!
