The Nutcracker (Sunday Snapshot)

It's one of those traditions that started over 25 years ago, before I had children.
I've had this love for the Nutcracker for many years and would attend productions pretty much everywhere we lived.

This is the 6th year that Grace and I have attended our local Nutcracker
put on by the Madison Ballet.
We've gotten where we both can anticipate each and every
dance and are never disappointed.
I'm hoping it's a tradition we can continue and maybe
next year bring Will (if he's up for it).

Taken shortly before we left yesterday.
Grace was playing with two of her Nutcracker ornaments from
the little tree in her room.

Merry Christmas!
We are getting a white one with a big snowstorm that's
hitting Wisconsin just as I write this.

I love these pictures so much! I absolutely love that you have this sweet tradition. I took Kaishon and Naji and Sabria one year. They were not old enough to appreciate the beauty : ).

We used to do the same thing each year. Don't know why we haven't gone in the past two. Need to start once again.

Stay warm Gail! How nice it's going to be when Christmas rolls around. "I'm dreaming of a white Christmas....."

What lovely tradition. Hope to do that with my girls when they're all home and settled. Grace is so beautiful! Would love to know the color of her room. Want to paint the middle girls room. Room changing starts again. ;) Xoxo
Merry Christmas!

Your daughter is gorgeous and you have captured her so beautifully! Lovely images! I also love the Nutcracker. Our local symphony usually does a children's version of it that is only about 45 minutes - it's perfect for my younger kiddos. Unfortunately they didn't do it this year though, so we didn't get the chance to go. Hoping for next year!
