Little Pirates

We got Ms. Burrito's costume for their recital this coming June. I was disappointed of the costume because we paid $78 but the quality of the costume is very cheap.  This costume won't cost  more than twenty bucks I believe. The girls are also disappointed because  they probably think that they would have  like a pretty ballerina costume for their recital.  Oh well, Ms. Burrito is done with  dancing anyway.  After the recital, she wants to  take piano lessons instead.
They will be dancing the them song of the Pirates of the Caribbean.  Here are the little  pirates practicing their piece.  
One thing that shocked me is the price that you have to pay to have your  child's photo be  placed at their  book/program.  For one  whole page, it is $150.  Not only that, you have to pay for the    photo to be taken but you won't get any copy at all.  Another thing is, you have to design your own page, save it in a disk and submit it or else, you have to pay an additional of $15 for them to do it.   I mean come on,  for the money that they are charging, why don't they do it?  Whew!   We won't  participate on  the  above stuff but we will  pay the required patron fee of $20.  

Sorry for my ranting folks.  Have a great week ahead!

  6. I've bee to our granddaughter's dance competition recently. Great fun, but it makes you appreciate just how great the kids on So You Think You Can Dance really are.

  7. This is just my interpretation. Rose is sweet and elegant and beautiful Rose in Chinese is made up of 2 words, beauty and elegance.

    That is why my Dad didn't want the feminine side, he chose his daughter's name with character. My other sis is called Ice.

  9. The costume is cute, but I agree - the price is ridiculous! And the fees for everything - how sad that they feel they have to make money from every little thing! As for taking piano lessons, I did as a child, and the ability to play the piano is something that has given me much pleasure for over 55 years now...hopefully she will love it!

  10. Love the photo but what makes them think a young family can afford those way too high photo prices etc. You are right not to fall for these requirements.

    The costumes are darling.
    Hugs, Jeanne

  11. Love the cute little pirate :)

    Great to know you didn't pay that absurd price. $150 and still you don't get a copy and you have to design it yourself. Crazy!

  13. Hello.
    The costumes are cute, but the price is shocking. This is one of those instances where you definitely DON'T get what you pay for! Nice photos.
    Thanks for sharing.
