My sister told me that when we were little my Mom took us to see the Nutcracker. I might have a vague recollection of this but it's a fuzzy memory at best . Today, I took Libby and Maggie to see the Richmond Ballet and Virginia Symphony Orchestra perform their rendition of the Nutcracker. It was so beautiful. I wish I had a picture to show you because everything from the costumes, the set design, the dancers, everything was beautiful. By the end of the second act, Maggie was twisting in her chair and asking for a snack, but other than that, it was perfect. The girls favorite part was when the little brother in the beginning of the ballet gets a spanking for being naughty. My favorite part was the Snow Queen and King dance with the Snowflakes. Here are a couple pictures I snapped of the girls before we left this morning. They were excited to wear their Christmas dresses for this year.
December is off with a bang. We got a Christmas tree tonight and I'm happy to report, there was no repeat of last year. I'll save the Christmas tree story for another night.
Grace and Peace
