The Nutcracker, SO Sweet


This evening we went to our city's production of The Nutcracker Suite, and it really was so sweet for us. You see, our very own granddaughter Anne Marie was a ballerina in the production! The two hours just flew by, and then she was at the edge of the stage with the others, taking her bow and getting her picture and flowers. Such poise for only six years old. A truly unforgettable evening with memories to cherish.



“ We ask you—urge is more like it—that you keep on doing what we told you to do to please God, not in a dogged religious plod, but in a living, spirited dance.”

What a sweet memory. I hope Anne Marie keeps dancing. Just think of all the years of Nutcracker photos you will be able to collect as she grows up.

How special, Ginny! I bet it was really lovely! Your granddaughter is one talented cookie! She looks beautiful! The black and white she is wearing makes me think of a Panda Bear. :)
