Last night....




...courtney's dance school celebrated Robbie Burns day (he's a Scottish poet-Auld Lang syne- 'Ode to a Haggis'...heard of him? )
anyway...we had a beautiful sit down dinner at the holiday inn with the traditional Parade of the guests- where a piper pipes everyone to their tables, and then the piper piped the traditional Parade of the haggis, followed by the reading (by a true Scott no less ) of the poem "ode to a haggis" ---which we also found an ice cream scoop size on our dinner plates---yeech!!! ( i'm not that brave, but mike ate mine, mom's and his own...hero! )
the dancers all get to dress up their best for this formal evening and even have their own eating quarters to themselves ( little party room of dancers! )
and then afterwards, the kids all do about a half hour performance of course with highland dancing!!!



i took a few pic's of miss courtney all dressed up and thought, especially in this one of her alone, that she looks like a little 'pre-teen' and look at those long slender slinky little legs she's developed!!! she's not supposed to look so grown up yet...she's only 9!!!!! aaaghhhh!!!! i guess this means that i am getting older too...although i don't like to admit it! { GIGGLE }
( courtney's in the middle )




...this group photo in the black and white outfits is a choreography number called "cry of the celts" and the music is from Lord of the Dance...man i LOVE this music and performance!! way to go girls on another outstanding show!!! ( and we missed you tonight KELSEY!!! courtney and i were thinking of you and your exciting weekend!! )

Courtney, you did look awesome. Wish I had those legs, but alas, I take after my mother and my baba (short gorgeous women with lots of us to love).
Looking forward to your Newsletter!
Wish I could make it tonight and next week Friday.
