We went to the Showstoppers Dance Competition this past weekend. 3 days of dance, dance, dance. We didn't stay in a hotel we just drove to Jacksonville everyday. Wow that is alot of being on the road, but the girls had a great time.
Friday night was Bethany's new solo. It is in the category Musical Theatre. It is called 'Little Known Facts' from the show 'You're A Good Man Charlie Brown'. She is playing Lucy VanPelt. This is a good picture of her in her new costume. All those little dots on the dress are 'rhinestones' that I added. So very cute. My really good, talented friend Lenee made this awesome bow, and I of course added rhinestones to it as well.....

Bethany wanted to SPARKLE....

We invited Bethany's friend Shelby along for the weekend to cheer Bethany on....

This is Tina Whaley, and Mia.....Tina's daughters Hootie, and Cheyanne go to the studio with the girls. Hootie, and Bethany are in the same dance class.....enough about them...I must tell you about my new little friend Mia who sat beside me for just about 2 days. She is the cutest little thing ever, and she was a big help rescuing me from bags of Cheetos...LOL

This was Sunday morning, all the girls were trying to get ready under the stairs. This is Katie, and Rachel.

Shelby, and Bethany. Bethany wanted to wear every pin, and metal she ever won....LOL

Ms.Krissi, and Cheyanne

Me having a ton of fun.....I know my hair is now dark, and I look pasty white..

It can be alot boring at times waiting for the girls to go on. I mean I love to watch the other dancers, and I do watch alot, but sometimes you just need a BREAK.....Here is Royal (Krissi's husband, and prop guy) playing around with Hootie..

Cheyanne getting her make-up done by her mom, Tina.

Hootie showing how flexible she is.

My new littlest friend Mia being cute as a button.
Royal, and one of the dance Dad's playing around....LOL

This is Lynsey right before she went on stage with her new solo 'Cinema Italiano' from the Musical 'Nine'. Yes we are a musical loving family....LOL
This is the only picture with awards I took the whole weekend....Lynsey was in the Advanced Division, Musical Theatre Category, and won Gold with 5th overall. There were 16 kids in the overalls for this division....coming in 5th is pretty darn good.

Bethany's solo was in the Competitive Division, Musical Theatre Category, and she won a Platinum award.
Lynsey and Bethany's tap duet was in the Competitive Division, Musical Theatre Category, and they won a Gold (It was 'I Can Do That' from the show Chorus Line)
Lynsey was in 2 group dances.
'Diamonds' was in the Competitive Division, Lyrical Small Group, and it won Double Platinum with a 4th overall.
'Strongest Suit' was in the Competitive Division, Musical Theatre Large Group, and it won Platinum with a 2nd overall.
I wish I would've taken more pictures. (don't I always)

We had a good time. We saw some schools from Miami, and Panama City, and they were AWESOME.....we also saw Studio 1014, it was there hometown, and they were all there in full force, they have some wonderful dancers, they are beautiful to watch.

As far as the two days are concerned I had the best time sitting with Tina Whaley, and Gayle Mosely. They are a bunch of very fun girls. I laughed, and laughed. I also liked that they think my off beat humor is funny....I will be sitting with them alot next time too!! If you want to sit with us let us know and we will take a vote to see if you are IN or OUT....LOL
Note to self: I had some of the best Egg Drop Soup and Seared Tuna from PF Chang's this weekend. I can't wait to go eat a whole meal there. You should try it if you ever get the chance.
