The Nutcracker Ballet

We dressed up a bit

to attend our favorite local production of The Nutcracker Ballet.

We stopped on the way there to pick up a few toys for Toys for Tots.

Early on in the performance children are invited on stage with their donations and treated to a magic show brian-on-stage

put on by Godfather Drosselmeyer.

After the show, we attend a Tea Party with the dancers.

Our family tradition is you can attend with Mom once you turn five years old. The older children took home souvenirs for three year old Breanna.

We finished the night by sipping Egg Nog milkshakes together and finishing the ball game. Yes, we won!
