Sugar Plums Dancing in Our Heads

I am posting today about our experience with the Nutcracker ballet this year. My dd is dancing with the Carolina Ballet and has the honor of being a truffle and dancing with the Sugar Plum Fairy. Talk about what dreams are made of for a little girl! The whole experience has been wonderful, lots of work and time committment, but wonderful. I am so humbled by my daughter and her attitude in dancing in this ballet. She has been full of pure joy and I have had so much fun shadowing her and watching from the sidelines. I really have had to sit on my hands when I see the different dancers from the Carolina Ballet company come and go...I guess you could say I was starstruck! I love this time of year and I love this ballet. If you get a chance, go to the Carolina Ballet's Nutcracker this year or to your local ballet company's production of this great ballet or maybe catch a version of it on television. It definitely has our family dreaming of sugar plums and such.

This will be a special memory for S for the rest of her life! What do the boys think of it all? :-)

The boys have been very encouraging to her. As long as they do not have to go to all of the performances! Tomorrow they will go to see her dance so I think they are excited.
Hope all is going well for you all.
