These beautiful dancers were photographed on Saturday at the 5pm performance of 'Alice in Wonderland' put on by Grace's dance school. 
It was an honor for me to help the girls with their costumes and makeup.

Find many more black and whites at 'The Long Road to China.'

The third picture is hysterical! ;-) I've seen those faces a million times around my house.

These are gorgeous Gail. So happy the recital went so well and you were able to be a part of it backstage. I will miss that since Natalie isn't dancing anymore.

The costumes ARE gorgeous! I love the 3rd photo also - and thanks for posting it because sometimes I think it is only my children who aren't smiling all the time - lol!
