Another Magical Nutcracker Done...Now We Can Rest



This year's Nutcracker performances for my daughter was a success!  Whew!  Now we can take it easy and relax.  There was lots of running around to rehearsals and long nights.  She has been dancing in various Nutcrackers for about 4 years.  It is tradition for her to receive a nutcracker doll after each show.  It is so much fun to find a different one every year.  I have great success with Target.  They actually have a beautiful selection every year.  And what is great about them is that they are inexpensive but look expensive and have the year written on them!  My daughter loves to line them up on our mantel and relive all the different years when she received one.  I am so glad that I came up with that tradition for her.  She really looks forward to it.  Here she is in her snowflakes costume, with her new snowflake nutcracker.  That is my favorite dance in the whole performance.  My second favorite is the flowers.  The music is so beautiful.

I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!  We are expecting a big snow storm!  I have to run out and stock up on food!

Happy winter!

Your daughter looks so beautiful. I know everything was a success. One of my best friend's daughter danced in her first Nutcracker this year. We were so proud. It's a lot of hard work. Take a deep breathe and relax. Enjoy the snow.

Talk soon.
