Brandon, Lindsay and I had the opportunity to go see the Nutcracker with some very dear friends on the 3rd of this month. I had never seen it so it was so fun. The night was unforgettable. Lindsay was so excited about the whole thing. She wanted to go to a "romantic restaurant for dates." We went to Carino's and she was so good. I loved watching her fix her silverware and napkin and wait so patiently for her food and then use her best manners at dinner. She was in heaven the whole night. My Brandon on the other hand. He was really well behaved for the most part. During the ballet which he really did like, he pretended to be asleep and would snort as he "woke up suddenly". It was a night filled with lots of laughter, choking on crayons, a train that we had a hard time ditching and wet pants mixed in with a little lateness. It was such a fun night, one that will be fixed in my memory forever. And Shane was so wonderful. Not only did he stay home with our younger kids who were too young to go, he also watched our friend's son. Truly truly I had such a blast!! I wouldn't have changed a single thing about the night!

waiting for our friends to come pick us up.
Lindsay and I during intermission. She was bouncing up and down in her seat the whole first half. I kept asking her if she had to go to the bathroom, but she always said no. At intermission she told me she was bouncing because she was having so much fun!

our favorites were the Waltz of the Snowflakes and the dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy.

We decided since Logan and Sophie didn't get to go, we would bring them home with a little souvenir. Yes, Sophie broke the foot off her ballerina the next morning. (sigh)

That's so much fun! I really enjoyed chatting and hanging out with you on Thanksgiving! Wish you were closer...I feel like I didn't get enough "catching up" with you.

You make it sound so funny. I was more than a little embarrassed, but it's funnier as time passes. Thanks for reminding me about the crayon!
