The Nutcracker

Last Friday I took Haley to see the Nutcracker. I hadn't seen in it a lot of years myself, so I was looking forward to it, too. We both enjoyed it very much - though we both agreed we wished it was just a little shorter. ;) It had been a long day of school and work for us, so we were tired and ready to go home to bed by the end.

She spotted the Nutcracker statue as soon as we walked in the door and wanted her picture with it.

The best part of the whole evening (for both of us) was after the ballet ended. The director of the ballet company invited any of the kids who were interested to come up to the front by the stage. They got a quick lesson in some ballet basics and got a chance to talk to and ask questions of some of the stars of the show. Then some of the dancers taught them all a little dance. Haley loved it - especially the chance to be up on the stage! They all looked adorable up there dancing.

How fun! I always think it should be a little shorter, too. :)

Fun! We loved going too. Sounds like you had a neat after-show experience.
