Dancin' Daughters (and Dancin' Hair)

Cayna and Bethanie recently had their first gymnastics recital. It was lots of fun for them. Their performance was held at Artemus Ham Hall on campus at UNLV. Boy did that bring back memories. My daughters flipped all over the stage where I graduated from college, how crazy is that?

Here they are in their neon outfits posing by a tree outside the green room at Ham Hall.

And here are some closeups of their hairstyles, intentionally crafted to keep their silvery headbands in place during their performances. Thanks to my hairstylist-pro sister in law and the website she introduced us to for making this possible. I only wish she could have been here to do the work! These are shots before the dress rehearsal. I improved my form by the real performance date - Bethanie's bangs weren't left hanging for the final show.

Finally, here they are together in the green room on dress rehearsal day, and then at home after the real performance with their flowers. They were superstars!

I just found your blog from seeing Janelle M's "follow" blog list. I just started my own, and love reading up on what other's are doing. (
Well I read down a little bit and very sorry for what you have been going through. The world should be filled with as many Love's as possible, and sorry that we are missing out on two more.
On a positive note: CUTE HAIR! And I am glad I don't have girls because I could NEVER do that.

What fun! Your girls look beautiful. You did a great job on their hair. I'm going to have to check out that website.

What a fun date post about going out with Joe.

The girls look so cute in their outfits, and the hair looks great! I hope it wasn't too tricky. I wish I could have seen the recital.
