We got tons of pictures with the characters as well as some other ballerinas, but I decided to spare you here and only included a few of my favorites.
This is a picture of Alise with her dance teacher, Ms. Gretchen. She is fabulous and had one of the main parts in the "Elf" production. Alise got a kick out of getting to watch her teacher dance.
Not only did the children get to eat breakfast with the characters, but they had different
"stations" set up for cookie decorating, making reindeer food, story time, and actually getting to go back stage.
Here is a pic of Alise with Buddy on stage. She loved the idea that she was on the same stage as her dance recital last May! And when the snow came down, the children went crazy!! And the man that played Buddy, was wonderful! He fit the character perfectly...very tall!
We met up with Ms. L and EC, Alise's new best friend at her new school. They are so tight and I love it! We love Ms. L (Alise's teacher) and EC.
And here is a pic of a local children's author, Cindy Foust, reading "Buddy the Elf" to a group. Check out her Alpha-Kidz books! They are wonderful and we have several of them. Cindy is so nice and it was her brother that actually played the character of Buddy.
And last but not least, here is a pic of Wayne and his 9-point buck. Good Lord!
Of course, Baby Girl had to get in the picture, too. She's actually going with her daddy to the camp this weekend.
