The Nutcracker

blog reading 3

We read and reread this story because this was Abigail's first time going to the ballet.  I really wanted her to understand the story.

And we all loved the show. Anna was on the edge of her seat the whole time. Abigail sat so still and enjoyed it more than I thought. She kept whispering to me, "tell me when the battle scene is mommy...."

We were able to sneak a picture with one of the ballerinas.

And of course they came home with their own Nutcrackers.

Such a wonderful thing to do at Christmastime. How I love having girls...

  1. I love these pictures - I guess I need a bigger tree to get more of that gorgeous light in the background.
    Funny thing - Amelia picked the same Nutcracker as Anna when we went to see her cousin dance in it a few weeks ago. SMALL world:)
