1: Lauren Taylor Watson You are such a blessing to have in our lives. God has already given you so many special talents, one being your ability to light up a room with your dancing. What a beautiful little ballerina you have become! In August 2010, at the age of three, you have begun your journey as a dancer. As you grow and mature in your dancing ability we pray that God will always use you and your gifts to glorify Him! This small book is a look at your first year in dance and the friends you made along the way. We love you! Mommy & Daddy
2: Here are a few pictures from your first day of dance. You were so beautiful in your tiny leotard, purple tutu and itty bitty ballet shoes. Your first day was also the day of your 3rd birthday party, and daddy's trip to the emergency room. It was a long fun filled day.
4: Valentines 2011 You wanted mommy to make you a "beautiful purple tutu" for dance. So here it is. When you opened it you replied "Awe, mommy it's just like I dreamed it would be!"
5: Life its self is the most wonderful FAIRYTALE
6: Your first dance recital was at the Imperial Theater downtown on Broad Street. Mommy, Daddy, Grammie, Poppy, Aunt Stephanie, Justin, Aunt Sarah, Nana, Papa, Grandaddy, Granma Sammy, and Great Granny Lois came to watch you dance. We got to the recital and I took you back stage where all of your friends were already waiting. You all looked so beautiful! You were such a brave girl to let mommy leave you and dance on the big stage.
