Emmy's end of the year recital for her singing and dancing class was last weekend and it was so. cute.

She's not the best at following directions, so when they practiced their song in class, she was watching herself do a booty-shake in the mirror, or running around, not paying attention.  

So imagine my surprise when she was actually doing the dance!  (Not all the moves, mind you, but enough the it made me a proud mamma!)  She did such a great job!

The song was to "Zippity-Doo-Dah" and was simply adorable.

Emmy's friend, Max, was singing right into the microphone the whole time.  After the show, my dad asked me, "So did Max have a solo?"  No, no planned solo.  He just liked hearing his voice in the mic, like any kid.  Emmy and one of the other girls in the group even tried to sneak to the microphone to get a turn but Max saw and quickly ran over to claim his mic!  Seriously, so funny.  I love watching little kids perform because there is always going to be something that will make everyone laugh.

Emmy didn't even have to look at the teacher to remember the "step - touch - step - touch" part in the middle of the song.  She just stared at her little feet and step - touch-ed away!

I tried to get a group photo after the show . . . not the easiest thing to do with three and four-year-olds.  Emmy had a cookie in her mouth in three out of the five pics I took - and this was the best one of all the kids.  What can you do?  Take the cookie away for the picture, that's what you can do!  Too late for that now . . .

And Kate enjoyed the performance, too!
