Nutcracker Ballet

Last weekend marked the girls Second Annual trip to see the Nutcracker in Boston with Nana. This year, I was lucky enough to join them. Last year Sammy was too little to be left for very long, and we thought that at 5 months, he wouldn't appreciate the wonder of the nutcracker:)

I had forgotten just how magical it was. The girls were completely enthralled by the performance. As each character came on the stage they were delighted with ooh it is Mama Ginger, or the Sugar Plum Fairy, or the little sheep. They have been requesting the Nutcracker as their bedtime story for the past couple of weeks. We were lucky that there was a very nice group of young women seated behind us, who instead of being irritate by the constant chatter, where actually quite taken by the girls and how much they knew about the story.
