Piper's Birthday Morning and First Ballet

Saturday was Piper's actual birthday. When she woke up, the first thing she said was "I'm big 3 today!" Downstairs we had her presents waiting for her, an art easel, a new bike, and a bunch of other fun gifts from her family in America. She, of course, was super excited about the balloons that we had tied all over the house.

 Checking out her new easel

 Trying out the chalkboard

 Opening presents!

 She was super excited to be the Big Three!

To celebrate her big day we took her to a local production of the Nutcracker, put on by the Pretoria Youth Ballet at the South Africa State Theater. She was very excited to go to her first official ballet and we had just the right outfit to wear!

The ballet was really great, I was really impressed with the quality of the production. It was packed full of moms, dads, and their little girls all dressed up in tutus, elsa dresses, fairy dresses, etc. Piper sat through the first half of the ballet and was transfixed, she barely even moved. The second half was pushing into her nap time ,and is also just a long time to sit still and be quiet, so there was quite a bit of wiggling around and crawling around on the floor, but overall she did fantastic at her first ballet!

It was a great Big Three!!!
