The Nutcracker Ballet

On December 10th, we took Bridget to see The Nutcracker Ballet. We were all really excited... neither my husband nor myself had ever been. It was a bit pricey but well worth it! We got Bridget all dressed up in her Christmas attire and headed out to see the 2 p.m. performance. She was all smiles and giggles the whole way there.

Our seats were actually pretty decent. This was the view we had of the stage:

Trying to get a good picture of Bridget with the stage as the background but the lighting just wasn't working for us:

I wish I could have gotten more pictures but my husband and I both follow rules and did not take pictures or record the performance, unlike the woman sitting next to me.

All of the dancers did a really good job and we were all very entertained. The music provided by a live orchestra was also very lovely. I was surprised that Bridget made it through most of the performance because she's usually napping at by 2. She lasted until about 3:30! She clapped, smiled, and even moved her arms around as if she were dancing, before finally passing out in Daddy's arms. During intermission, Bridget and I went downstairs and bought her a small nutcracker Christmas tree ornament to remember the day (I wrote her name and the date on it after we got home). I definitely want to make this an annual tradition. I think she'll enjoy it even more next year.
