Nutcracker 2009

Toothsome #2 participated in her dance studio's production of "The Nutcracker." This year, she got to do two different dances--the soldier and a Chinese Dancer.
This is the one time during the whole year, that I get to be alone with her for two days and we both just soak it up. We always go to Olive Garden during the Saturday performances and I love getting to spend this time with her.

Dentist Husband is kind enough to stay home with the others while I do this with toothsome #2 but they do always come of the matinee, so see her perform. This year, after watching it he said, "Let me see, some pirate comes to a party and brings some crazy gift, laced with some hallucinogenic substance that causes Clara to see visions of people dancing?" I have been watching "The Nutcracker" my whole life, so the story never seemed that strange to me but when you really look at it, it is a little weird.
Next year, toothsome #4 will be in it too. With this season's performance over, it is now onto more Christmas fun.
