The Nutcracker

The week before Christmas was a big week in our house! School was winding up and winter break was approaching. Our winter vacation started with 3 back-to-back performances of The Nutcracker. Our little ballerina loved every moment of the fast paced schedule! After we turned in her costume and closed the book on this year's performance, I asked Katie what part she wanted to be next year. Her answer: "The snow queen mommy! She's the prettiest dancer in the whole ballet!"

Our little ballerina

Katie & Miss Carrie (her ballet teacher)

Performing her Chinese Tea Act
Ballet = F-U-N!!!

Nana, Nini, and the ballerina

Mrs. Hoffner came to her final performance and snuck backstage with me!

Katie picked out a new nutcracker ornament for our tree. We started this tradition 3 years ago when "the girls" first began attending the ballet.
