Jazz Hands!

I came across my old dance costume ( as you can see it's from the early 90's.... and yet it still gives my heart a thrill... LOVE the sequinned leg warmers... sigh:) anyway.. i instantly knew who needed this sparkly gem.. MADDIE!! when i gave it to her she was sooo thrilled! she put it on and felt so special. She is always performing for us.. singing and dancing. Some of my favorites lately are her singing ALL the words to Annie's "Tomorrow"... and Little Mermaids "part of your world", and of course mama mia's "honey honey"! seriously funny! so since i did a post on Mia's fun facts, i thought i would do one for maddie too :)
