After a busy day of piano lessons and apartment hunting~I got to have dinner with my Littles.
It did my soul good to feel and see their enchantment of the magic of the festal season.
VERY excited 3yo waiting for the Nutcracker to begin. (She would be the one on the left.)
Not sure the 6 yo was quite as excited, but he does love going out at night~it's both delightful and bittersweet to watch him transition out of pure babyhood and into an elementary school child.
I'm actually becoming a fan of local productions~tix are cheaper, parking is easier, and one is supporting local artists. The costumes were stellar tonight and they had the high school jazz choir singing before the show. And we now have another funny Nutcracker moment to add to our long history of amusing moments~ the Drosselmeyer almost took out a dancer with his elaborate and fancy cape swirling.
And we're all safely home through the pouring rains.
