Indians and Uncle Remus

Carter and Alyssa take piano lessons. For their recital they played Disney pieces and had to dress as a Disney character. Alyssa played "Colors of the Wind" from Pocahontas. We borrowed some clothes from Grammy and Grampy for a Pocahontas costume.

Doesn't she make such a pretty Indian maiden? She played her song very well too.

Carter played "Zip a Dee Doo Dah" so we dressed him up like Uncle Remus. Complete with a bluebird on his shoulder. He played his song perfectly and wasn't nervous at all for his very first recital.

His teeth are starting to fall out. He has lost his two front bottoms and one front top. Since he actually has 3 front teeth it makes his jack-o-lantern smile really skiddywampus, (I have no clue how to spell that) and it cracks me up every time he smiles.

Kate wasn't about to be left out of the picture taking on recital day. Silly girl.

Nope, you're not seeing things, Halle ALSO dressed like an Indian for recital day. Only it was for her ballet recital. (All on the same day. Actually our day went like this, soccer game, piano recital, neighbor's wedding, ballet recital. It was a crazy day.)

Halle and her friend from dance class. The studio did "Little Red Riding Hood" and Halle's class danced to a song from "Last of the Mohicans". They were indians in the woods and they captured the wolf, but let it go again and it ended up at Red's Grandmother's house. It was a contemporary ballet piece and very beautiful to watch. A great ending to such a busy day.

I seriously love these costumes! You did such a wonderful job, Mom! And the kids look fabulous! Oh, I wish, I wish I had a single daughter willing to dance. I loved dance. That piece about Red and the Wolf sounds great! I'm sure everyone performed perfectly! :)
