I took Addison to see Ballet Austin's The Nutcracker on Sunday. I can't describe how much fun we had.
We started with lunch at the Shady Grove. Here's a classy photo we took in the restroom.
The first thing we did when we got to the theater was look for a keepsake. Addison saw a Clara Nutcracker and never saw anything else.
One of my old students now dances with Ballet Austin and got us discounted tickets, 10th row, right on center. The seats were AWESOME.
Once the show started, Addison was in HEAVEN. She gasped when the Snow Queen came onstage. She watched the young dancers intently, taking in their every move. She loved the snow. She loved the music. She loved the costumes. It was all so magical.
They have the Trail of Lights display out around the venue and Addison wanted to take a photo with all of the different pieces. :)
To top it all off, Addison said to me as we were leaving, "Momma, today was the most SPECIAL day EVER." I couldn't agree more!!
