We’re going to follow all of that fun up with some holiday cheer from Friday and Saturday…
…on Friday night, we headed to The Star in Frisco for their tree lighting event. Now, if you don’t know what The Star is…it’s about 15 minutes from our house where Jerry Jones built the new practice facility/super huge/amazing complex for the Dallas Cowboys (who play their games in the stadium in Arlington, but practice/work/operate out of this location). Every Friday and Saturday night until Christmas, they host a huge tree lighting ceremony complete with fireworks, famous Cowboys players, the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders, music, Santa Claus and MORE! It was so much fun!!! (Free fun too!!) We started our night by eating at one of the restaurants in the complex and then hurried on over for the main event…
Outside of the complex waiting for it to start!
Ha! Best seat in the house 🙂 .
It was really quite a show! It’s about 30 minutes of crazy fun energy! The cheerleaders danced several times (see above).
We loved the music!
They lit the tree!
For this dance, their uniforms were covered in Christmas lights.
When you see the big guy in red 🙂 .
It was just FUN! My kids had the best time!!
We walked in the big Cowboys fan store after and then were outside listening to the Christmas music they were piping in when I looked over and saw these two chatting. Sisters. They’re such sweet sisters.
The next morning…we were up bright and early because it was RECITAL DAY!
Here I am at rehearsals the morning of with Ashby, Kensington and Ebby Lee (Madeley had already had her rehearsal earlier that morning).
Kensington and Ashby were both in the Nutcracker (which they had two performances of), and then Ashby tapped and Madeley did ballet in their Holiday Show (which was between the two Nutcracker shows).
My girls 😉 .
Kensington has danced with this group of girls since she was so tiny. They are all SUCH SWEET GIRLS!
During intermission between shows, these two took a pic with the Nutcracker.
My little Cindy Lou Who danced to “Where Are You Christmas?”.
Strike a pose!
Intermission between shows…Papa Jay and Lovie were there!
Ashby was so proud of Madeley! Here she is coming from backstage. Ashby was like SO PROUD!
“Ashby, enough already.”
Love my little dancers!
Libby has the hair for Cindy Lou Who!!!
Round TWO of the Nutcracker!
We had such a fun day together!
Dance has got us like…
When you’ve sat through the Nutcracker five years in a row…
Britty was so cute watching everyone dance!!
Dance moms 🙂 .
(Not really, we never know what’s going on and are always asking our other dance mom friends what we’re supposed to be doing.) Hahaha!
After the show 🙂 . This friendship is just so sweet!!
And that’s a wrap! Another dance recital in the books!!
Happy first Monday in December, friends! I’ll see you guys back here tomorrow!
