Rudolph and 1st Time Ice Skating!


This year was Pen's first performance in Rudolph.
Her ballet company is Gustafson Dance and this performance was held at the Lobero Theater.
Its such a cute show because well the movie Rudolph is cute and this is a complete adaptation.
Pen's class were the Snowflakes, and their costumes were gorgeous!
These pics are fun because some show her and her friends goofing around backstage during rehearsals.
These performances are total payoff for me- makes that tuition worth every penny!

After the performance we took the girls up to Los Olivos for their Christmas lighting ceremony and iceskating in Solvang. We ended up missing the Los Olivos thing but we did manage to squeeze in iceskating in downtown Solvang. This was both girls first time. So fun!
