She'll Be Famous

This holiday season, Pony Girl will be famous--at least that's what she keeps telling us. Last years dance recital was "Christmas in May." The girls wore the most adorable costumes ever (so forking out the smoola for them was so much easier--true story!) There were cute bells and penguins, baby dolls and more. It was so good, (I am positive that someone calling the station had NOTHING to do with it:) and our town soooo little, that the local PBS/college station caught wind of the event. The dances will now play throughout the entire month of December.

The night of the recordings was havoc in our home--worse than the recital!! Hair was curled, makeup was applied and nerves were aflutter.

When we arrived at the station they looked like this...
One adorable Frosty the Snowgirl and Christmas Tree at your service.


Awhile later, they looked like this...




Hmmmm.
When Sweetums turn came, I looked at her--she shook her head, "NO."
I let her stay put.

Interesting enough...the entire mommy crew of "mommy's to the Christmas Tree dance" kept trying to corral her in. (okay, not the entire crew--most were too busy with the stage mommy in all of us to notice, but a few, okay) I just kept telling them that she was not going to participate. Weird looks all around at me! I can't blame them--with a face, hair and make-up like that, she would have been the star of the show...come to think of it, they should be thanking me for not upstaging their trees:)

When Pony Girls turn came we were lucky enough to get into the station room to watch the entire dance go down.

They did GREAT and Pony girl was front and center for half the taping. She will be seen by millions...okay, okay, only about 10,000. But to a 9 year old...that IS millions!
