This is the 7th year for MaKenna's dance recital and the 4th for Macey.  We are so proud of both of them.

Remember Macey is our little grandpeep who has lymphedema .....well she nevers lets that slow her down, and she keeps on having an amazing attitude.  Her foot is still much larger than her right foot, and it has traveled to her knee.  Her biggest problem is having to buy two pairs of shoes to fit her feet.  In todays world of high price shoes it adds up.

For instance one of the dance moms decided she wanted Maceys class to have two outfits, well not usually a big deal, but this outfit had boots that went with it, $60.00 boots for a 4 min. routine, which quickly added up for Macey another $60.00....two different sizes.  Sometimes people do not realize what it takes for "normal" when things are not normal in your life.

BUTT Macey did just grand, jumping and bouncing and dancing in the air.

See her purple wig.

And here is her sister kenna.

  3. Both girls did great jobs. We give a tip of the tail to both of you.

  4. Normal ~ No one is normal. Normalcy is a lie invented by advertising agencies to make the rest of us feel inferior and a way for us to have to spend more money. The both look beautiful in costumes all decked out.
    Thanks for being a friend

  5. Mom says the costs for dancing costumes are unreal. Add all the competition fees and you are paying for a college education:( The girls look lovely, but so sad to have to spend so much money. Love that attitude on little Macey.

  13. They are so adorable! I know what you mean though, we went through it with my first niece who is now 24 and are going through it with my second niece who is turning 10. Amazing how much more expensive costumes have gotten in that time! Wish they could do some type of swap for these children who do all these programs!
