Ice Skating

My husband and I got to Indianapolis in plenty of time to see Alex perform in her competition today (Sunday.)  Saturday (we missed) was the compulsories and today was the program.  If you have a spare minute and a half or so, please enjoy the video I took. (If it posts)  The costume I made really sparkles and shines!  The only thing that bugs me is that it is a little long in front, but otherwise, it looks--and performs--well.

We are on vacation until after Thanksgiving!  As another reminder that we aren't in Hawaii anymore, this morning we had to scrape the windshield for the first time in nearly 4 years!!!


  1. Oh my gosh! So cute! Your skating dress was perfect!

  2. Wow! I have been away for a bit and had a lot of your blog to catch up on. Your skating costume is GORGEOUS! So professional looking! Your niece looks lovely in it and she is quite a little skater! Enjoy the holidays and the frosty mornings...

  3. The video was wonderful, and your outfit fit her perfectly. It only looks long in the front because she's leaning in on her moves most of the time. But when she stood up straight, like for the pirouette, it spun perfectly even! AWESOME! And her skating is so sweet and lovely. AND she was right on the beat of the music.....which always makes me crazy when watching professional skaters.....they're more concerned with the fancy jumps and flips, and not even paying attention to the music! Alex is great!

  4. The costume looks great! What a brave girl to get out there and perform!
