Last night Katherine and I, along with Granny and Poppy and Aunt Robie, went to see The Nutcracker. Katherine first saw the ballet two years ago and has been madly in love with it ever since. She loves the story, the dancing, the costumes, and the whole idea of toys that come to life. This year she was also thrilled to have an opportunity to wear the gorgeous black velvet dress that Robie bought her. The ballet was beautiful and we had a great time!
