The Nutcracker

Last night, Penny and I went to see her first Nutcracker. A local theater was running a Max & Ruby take of the show and my friend Kellie and I thought it would be a good first Nutcracker experience for our girls. 
The weather was snowy, so we took the train. Penny loved it!
We got to the theater just as the snow picked up.
She was so excited!
We found our seats and caught up with our friends while we waited for the show to start.
The girls loved every minute. 
They payed attention and asked questions and oohed and aahed. It was a great mix of fun and dancing for them. They incorporated the classical music and the story line and got the kids involved with the help of Max, Ruby, their grandma and a few elves. Penny loved the elves and the ballerina's costumes. She thought every ballerina should have a "prince" and wondered why the Sugar Plum Fairy dances alone. There were sing-a-longs through the show, which really kept the kids involved! It was the perfect first Nutcracker, even if our girls don't really know much about Max & Ruby :)
It snowed a few inches while we were there, so we were happy to take our train home! The drive home from the train station took twice as long as normal, but we made it safe and sound.
What a great night with my little lady!
