This weekend my youngest had her LAST dance recital EVER! Did you hear me - FOREVER! I am actually doing the happy dance - because my daughter is done with dance! Oh it started how everything else starts - a begging girl pleading with me to LET her do dance, and by the end of the school year me pleading with her to "finish strong and with a smile"! Jensen - or Jensie as we call her - is my one hit wonder. She tries everything once - and then wonders why she ever signed up for it. I don't know who was happier today - her or I? In celebration I made her a Tussy Mussy to give her after her performance. I only used 6 roses for this one - but I have made them in the past with up to 2 dozen! To make -I just take all the leaves off the roses, arrange them to my liking, cut stems to same size and then rubberband them together. I then start with my ribbon at the top, criss cross all the way down and then criss cross all the way up again ending with a big bow at the top. Put a damp paper towel at the bottom of a tall container and rest flowers, at least for a few hours, in container.
This is Jensie doing her best surprised look when I handed it to her - do you think Drama Club is next for us?
