Yep this was all on the same day...the same NIGHT actually. As mentioned before, I'm starting to understand why my mom hated Christmas. I've decided though, she didn't hate Christmas, she hated the pressures of December. Keith and I work really hard to be on top the shopping thing. I usually work on it throughout the Fall months and in November make up the lists of other family we need to plan for. It's the obligations and events in December that are starting to overwhelm me. Oh well, this crazy double booked night was FABULOUS!!!
I didn't really get any great pictures of her during the show. The lights on the stage were too bright for my camera phone to adjust. No worries, I took lots of videos. Ada was very nervous and I was worried she wouldn't even get up. I tried to have her stay by her buddy Brooklee, but when it started they weren't together. It took a little pushing and she finally saw Brooklee and went up. They did little warm ups first. I was SO proud to see her up there! After warm ups she came had two dances. One was just with her class (Girl's Just Want to Have Fun). At the end all the classes got up together and did a fish song. The above video was their warm up. I was proud of her doing it and following directions. Sweet girl is learning. The below picture is her getting ready for her fish song.
Keith's work party was at Dave and Busters. They had rented out the balcony and had TONS of food..AMAZING food. Seriously, delish!! I had to take a picture because it was so amazing. We totally stocked up and then when we were finishing up the servers brought out boxes. They were getting ready to set up for the next reservation and since they can't save food they said anyone could take whatever they wanted in the take home boxes. There were only a few of us still eating (most people had eaten an hour ago and gone to play games or left). We loaded up 6 boxes of food. Felt a little greedy, but I hate the thought of food going to waste. I can't stand that it is just thrown away. We loaded up and Keith took it out to the car while I waited inside. The company had also given each of us 300 token to play games with. As we headed to the game area one of Keith's friends were headed out and saw us. They had over a thousand tickets they had won and didn't want to they gave them to us and told us to get the girls something.
