A couple weeks ago, the girls' ballet class performed a short dance to the Dance of the Snowflakes from the Nutcracker. Natasha is one of the more advanced dancers in the class (I swear, this is what the teacher told me -I'm not just bragging), and so she was supposed to be a snowflake. But she was sick and missed three rehearsals. Since she didn't have time to learn the snowflake dance, the teacher had her be a bunny instead (Zoia missed a few rehearsals too, but she was always destined for bunny-dom).
Neither girl was very pleased about this, as the snowflakes got to wear proper tutus and the bunnies had to wear ears and made-by-me bunny tails. I thought they looked adorable but they were very grumpy. We used the camera to take video (which I can't get to upload for some reason) during the performance, so all I have is this photo of my reluctant rabbits. I was so proud of the tails (which I made out of tulle), but they hated them :(
