Abby and I saw The Nutcracker with Ballet Austin on Friday afternoon. Our friend from church Alexis was performaing as an angel, so we were excited to see her. I bought us the least expensive seats in case we left early and hoping that the people around us would not be as concerned with a 3 year old talking and moving around.
We had lunch with Marcus ahead of time and changed into our ballet clothes. I knew we would not be able to take many picture at The Long Center. Abby did as well as I had expected. She wanted to sit, then stand, then sit, etc. She has had a hard time remembering to whisper. We left at intermission after having been there about an hour. I didn't think it would get any better and she thought it was over anyway!
I love this picture- somehow she aged 3 years in this one!
My little bitty girl as we left the ballet. The Long Center is beautiful!
I am certain we will go back in a few years and hopefully, see the whole thing!
Merry Christmas Eve! We are busy with family today, church service tonight, and presents this evening!
