Nutcracker Blues

Whew! Our 6th Nutcracker season is officially over!

This year all three of my munchkins were in the show so we have been BUSY! 
It's always a bittersweet thing when it's done...
Happy we don't have anything but ballet on Saturdays now and no more practices,

Overjoyed watching the process and the beautiful ballet (great job to all dancers!)
Glad I made it through without strangling any children or their parents (came close a few times,)
Sad that I won't see some friends until next August at try-outs (if we are all that brave again.)

I must say I enjoyed this year's production so much (and not just because my kids were all adorable!)  Ballet Arkansas and the young dancers were all so brilliant.  I tried to not watch rehearsals this year and was glad because I was surprised and thrilled when I got to see the whole ballet.

Next year you'll have to bring Harper! They have a tea on Sundays before the show with the characters that we took Mackenzie to once. So cute. Max had to work it this year and was mad because he didn't get a cookie! :)

I think it's great that your kids have had this experience. I was in the Nutcracker once along with my younger brother and have always treasured the memory of being in it.
