They had stars in their eyes...

I took my niece and eldest daughter to an ice skating recital at Lu's ice skating school. They had their faces pressed against the glass through the good and the not so good. But if you ask them it was like watching the Olympics! A seven or eight year old girl walked by Lu & her cousin in a frothy pink costume and the girls nearly swooned. Lu said, "Mom, Mom, did you see? An ice dancer just walked by us!"

I heard Lu tell her cousin that some day she would be an ice dancer!

What did you aspire to be when you were little? Me, I wanted to be a prima ballerina. An unfortunate and massive growth spurt in middle school squashed my dreams. Plus, I am about as graceful as a hippo in tights and a leotard. :-)

Well... if you went by my hair, I wanted to be the next Dorothy Hamill. If you went by my accent, I wanted to somehow morph into Scarlett O'Hara. And if you went by the books I read, I wanted to be a detective ALA Nancy Drew or Trixie Belden.

So adorable! I really wanted to be a figure skater too. I was eleven before I ever even got to try skating, and I lack grace, flexibility, athleticism...

That is so fun and looks so up close and personal! I wanted to be a country-western singer decked out in rhinestones!

Got a kick out of your timely post - today was my girls' first experience ice skating. They're hooked. Also, wishing a happy new year to you and the family! Keep the good ideas coming in 2010.
