Ava is in her dance studio's production of the Nutcracker this Sunday. Today was dress rehearsal, the only time we can take pictures. She cried for about an hour before she "performed" because her costume was too itchy and it was making her bleed (No bodily harm was caused by the costume, but hers was a little small). Ava plays the part of a present, and she is supposed to dance behind Clara and do whatever she does. Today, however, she was too interested in all the decorations and things to actually do her dance. But she didn't cry and she didn't run off, so it was somewhat successful. Hopefully tomorrow at the real performance she will actually do something!
