20/52 - dress rehearsal

20/52 - dress rehearsal

This week has been a busy one with preparation
 for Grace's upcoming dance recital on the weekend.
Taken on Tuesday before professional pictures and a rehearsal,
I captured Grace right before we left.
The girls have to wear foundation, eyeshadow, eyeliner, mascara and lip color.

I got a little verklempt in the car on the way to the dance studio,
and couldn't help but look at her in the mirror as she was sitting in the backseat.
Why was I emotional?
It's a mama thing I suppose...maybe because she looks very grown up
and I love her so much.

Wow....she is gorgeous Gail. She looks amazing in orange. Like I told you earlier, our girls are growing up way too fast.

p.s. I asked Liam who was in the picture. He said "Grace"...he also said "she doesn't look the same". I explained she was dressed for her dance recital. He just kept say she looks different... too funny!
