Nutcracker and Santa

Since becoming a mom, especially a mom of girls, one of my most FAVORITE Christmas traditions is taking my girlies to the Nutcracker.  This was Cate’s 3rd time to go and since Anna is 3! now, it was her first time (she loved it!).  My mom always goes with us and there’s something so special about us gals going to the ballet together (this year my oldest niece got to go to!).  I love tradition and I love sharing these experiences with my mama and my girls.  I have to say, the best part of the evening is watching the girl’s faces when that curtain opens for the first time.

Here we are before the show…

And this weekend we went to see the Big Guy in the red suit. No need for explanation here, this photo says it all.

momma Dar - Just catching up and reading your wonderful blog…. I agree … sniff sniff…. wish I could have joined you at the Nutcracker too. One of our long time family traditions, that has been put on hold…. just on hold, it will pick back up again, I know. I love the Santa picture, it is so real and made me just stop and look at the wonder in those little people’s eyes. Love you all! Happy New Year!

holly - Hi Jaime,
I was looking at your website today… such an amazing job you have done!! I love all the pictures. I have to say however… I do believe Cate has been to the Nutcracker FOUR times, not three. 🙂
