We went to see the Nutcracker for the 4th year in a row and had another magical time. It was so sweet to see them come home, put on their dress-up clothes, and run around outside being a Snow Fairy and the Mouse King. Ashton doesn’t dress up anymore like she did when she was little–where we played “Nutcracker” over and over and over again– so it’s really precious to see her wearing those fancy dresses when she does.

Soon their dress-ups were caked with mud, and that is as it should be… and just what I want for them.

Marvett Smith - How fun! I’ve never seen Nutcracker before. I really need to do this someday. I love that you have this tradition, and it’s even better that they get to dress up and play. It’s what being a kid is all about and yours couldn’t be any cuter! 🙂

georgia b. - so fun! the second to last and third to last are my favorites! absolutely magical!

can you believe, i have never seen nutcracker in its entirety? not live or on t.v. either. i love the music, though. it’s been a favorite of mine since i was a kid.

Alicia Brown Photography - O my, Omy, I just L-O-V-E those pictures!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


we did not get to see the Nutcracker live this year, but we saw the new york ballet company’s
The Nutcracker on TV(at least I did. I was playing cribage with grandma while watching the Nutcracker).

mailli - I look at the top picture while listening to the music from the Sleeping Beauty Ballet!
