Ribbon dancing, the legacy continues..

O.K. so before you see the pictures, I have to tell you a story...

Once upon a time in a much colder place (Pocatello) and even before the kids were born we were having a wonderful Christmas at Morgan's parents house. Breanna, Morgans neice, probably about nine at the time had received a "ribbon dancing" set for Christmas as one of her presents. It contained a ribbon on a stick, and an outfit straight out of "I dream of Jeannie!". So with the video cameras rolling, Breanna put on a Ribbon dancing show, and it was cute. Then Ruth, who was probably 15 at the time decided that it was her turn so she stuffed herself into the outfit and put on a show all caught on tape. Then, in the spirit of ribbon dancers everywhere, Bonnie, probably 18 at the time, decided to throw herself into the nine-year-old outfit and put on a show. Let's just say that somehow that video has been lost and it is very sad because I am sure that both Bonnie and Ruth's husbands would REALLY like to see it! Oh, how I love things caught on tape!

O.k. so now onto our story...

We came home from church on Sunday and Sarah found one of my scrapbooking ribbons and said, "Look mom, I am a ribbon dancer!" and even after years of therapy, those memories came flooding back!He He! And then, not to be outdone, Will got into the act and became a "ribbon dancer" as well. It is nice to know that ribbon dancing is a hereditary gene! Who would have thunk it???

Christa, I had forgotten those dancers captured on film. I have no idea where this talent began. We loved our Christmas morning visit. It was just like being there. We love you all.
