The Nutcracker 2010

Abby and I had the pleasure of seeing The Nutcracker together again this year. What a great time we had! Our local dance academy, Lone Star Ballet, does a wonderful job with this production every year. 

My gorgeous girl showing off the tickets before the show.

Abby got a fancy new dress for the occasion.  Doesn't she look cute?

One of the few pictures I was able to get at the show.  Abby kept refusing to take pictures!  I wanted to get one of us together but it was a no-go.  I was lucky to get this one!

Mama and Abby after the show.  I forced her to take this one!

The ornament we (Abby) chose from the sales booth.  I wanted to get a nutcracker, but it was just too chaotic to even be able to get down the line to look at them.  Next year we are going to get there really early so we have more time to browse.

Another view of the ornament.  {Please ignore my chipped manicure! ;-)}  I tried to get Abby to choose a little ballerina ornament to match the ballet slippers ornament we got last year, but this is what she wanted.  We are not the ice skating type so I'm not sure why.  Casey calls ice skating "standing on blades" and refuses to even try it!  I've been once and didn't really enjoy it.

A free "fanny" poster we got from the show. 

Abby is now getting ready to put on her own rendition of The Nutcracker for us, so I get to see two shows today!  Good times and great memories.
