Wordless Wednesday — Ballerina Smiles

by Janice

Ballet Recital - 2011 - Julia and Olivia

My Ballerina Olivia and Me

In June, I posted one of my favorite shots of Olivia. It was her screaming in her ballet costume, a tantrum that turned into an awesome, hysterical photo.

But, I thought I would post some of the smiles from that day as well. Because there were also lots of smiles and hugs.

Mom Bloggers (and Dad Bloggers too!) post a photo on your site, link up and find others… Wordless Wednesday is tons of fun. (And I know it says “wordless” but I just can’t bear to not write anything! If I had created it, I probably would have named it something different! LOL So feel to link up your word-full or word-less Wednesday photos!)

Leave the URL to your photo (clearly mine are never truly “wordless”) and then visit others!

Here is a fun thumbnail linky:

And here is a basic linky if you prefer your linkies the good old fashioned way!

Thanks to Uisce for creating Wordless Wednesday.

How cute, Janice. She has such a darling smile (and so do you!).

Looks like your linky isn’t working, so here’s my WW post:

Great shot!! I can’t wait until Lulu is old enough for dance (that isn’t a mommy and me class)!



9 Janice August 24, 2011 at 2:06 am

I call my Livvie “Lulu” often too! Cause I call her “Livvie Lou” and then I end up shortening it to “Lulu” or “Lu” :)

Oh the jealousy from a mom of 3 boys… I keep waiting for someone to drop off a little girl – if only there truly was a stork that could just swing on by.

GIrl I know! I didn’t get my girl until my son was almost six!!! I have to say, I am just so grateful for every little shade of pink!
