Stella's solo was at the beginning of "Last Christmas." She stood up there all alone looking beautiful, and then this adorable tiny girl with the voice of an angel would begin to sing her momma's favorite holiday song. It made me cry every single time.
Other highlights were how dang cute the costumes were and how absolutely darling all of the girls looked wearing them together on stage. Also, Stella is the shortest, and thankfully for her teacher clearly one of the best, so she's front and center most of the time. And in my humble opinion, that is where she belongs.
I wish Stella had more shows this season, because I really could not get enough of them. Her last show before the final recital was at Valley Fair Mall. We had a huge turnout of fans at that show. Tyler, Courtney, Porter, and Lottie. All of the Douglas crew, Lindsey and Asher, Beth, and Grandma Sallay. After the show we all went to dinner at Cafe Rio. It was super fun.
