The Nutcracker

Today we were so blessed to be able to see the "classic" Nutcracker done by our state ballet. They did a marvelous job! The costumes were spectacular, very beautiful and elegant. They had an amazing number of children involved. Both young and old! I've seen many productions of the Nutcracker over the years, and this was definitely one of the BEST! When the girls were younger, and my mother was alive, she would take us to see the Nutcracker at Christmas. It was our annual tradition. But after her death it wasn't something that I could afford on my own. This year we were blessed to go with a friend's homeschool co-op. Our seats that were normally $46, were available to us for $6 each! Yeah God!!
To add to our blessing, when we got there.....we discovered that someone from the group had saved us all really great seats! VERY unexpected!! We sat together with our good friends the Olson's. Don't we have some beautiful girls??

This would be my sad attempt at a group shot! It looks more like the joke about "hear" no evil, "speak" no evil, "see" no evil! LOL What monkeys! I really do love these girls!!
We had a wonderful time together making memories!
