The Nutcracker Ballet

It's been a week, and I can't believe that the Nutcracker is over for this year. The weeks leading up to it are a lot of work for my girls, especially Theater Week - the week before the performances with rehearsals every night that week. It wears me out, and all I am is the chauffeur. Ballerina and Little Red end up absolutely exhausted. It's all worth it, though, when I get to see the final result.

Here's your warning - this is a picture heavy post. :) I'm super proud of my girls.

This year, Little Red was a mouse and a gingersnap.

Ballerina was a party boy (one of Fritz's friends), a soldier, and part of the Arabian corps.



One of my favorite things is helping backstage. One - I get to take pics of my beautiful girls in costume, up close. Two - I get to watch my girls hang out with their ballet friends.

While I enjoy getting to see what happens backstage, the real magic is on stage.








 Now that the Nutcracker is over, and classes are over until after the New Year, we can all relax. We'll start all over again January 6th with ballet classes. Then the girls will dance in a spring show. This year's is called Dance Extravaganza. I can't wait.
