Our daughters have been putting on a Friday night dance show the past few weeks – or at least on our Friday nights that are free of plans. Our youngest typically spearheads the events and begs her older sister who gamely joins in. They choose 3 or 4 songs, apply some gaudy looks (and too mature poses that are frightening if foreshadowing their teenage years), and freeform some dance moves.
Dance shows are, of course, the perfect excuse for playing with makeup, leotards, and bathing suits. They are also a perfect excuse for me to memorialize this fun age with some portraits.
There was even a special Christmas show with full Frosty the Snowman dress
And then, there are some Fridays when I'm not entirely sure what is happening nor what the night's theme may be, but simply sit back and enjoy.
