Fall Dance Class

I made the executive decision to send Libi to dance class in her pumpkin princess outfit.

You see, in late summer when we began to discuss Halloween costumes the converstaion went something like this:

Mommy: What do you want to dress up as for Halloween.

Libi: A goose.

M: Really??? You were just a mingo last year. Let's do something else. What else would you like to be?

L: A pumpkin.

M: That's too boring-- how about Elliott the Dragon from Pete's dragon.

L: OK Mommy!

Maybe the conversation wasn't quite that short or focused, but you get the point.

To make up for the fact that I am anti-traditional Halloween costumes, I purchased the pumpkin princess outfit from Gymboree.

Now that we had the costume, we needed a place to wear it... and then it dawned on me-- it kinda looks like a dance costume. BING!

The light bulb went off and I had a plan!

Libs looked so sweet and she blended pretty well-- except for the orange coloration.

She was a total flopper in dance class today. Instead of just bending over and touching the ground she threw her whole body onto the floor!

Look at this amazing leap-- she has a gift!

Next they did the most adorable thing we've seen-- they danced in partners.

They swayed back and forth to a waltz and held hands the entire time-- so cute!

Have you ever seen a cuter tap-dancing pumpkin??

We had to stop by Rio Norte to let Daddy see the costume AND so she could show off her dancing skills to one of Ron's classes.
