The costumes are great and she looks so darn cute I've taken about a million pictures! She is a mouse in the first act of the play and then a Cherry Blossom in the second act. She told me that next year she wants to be Clara. She is ambitious! So every night lately there we are at the high school waiting to go on, changing in and out of costumes, waiting, and helping other little girls with their costumes! She will be sad when it is done, but I won't! I am ready for a break!
Oh, she also had a Tavaci concert in the middle of all the Nutcracker chaos (Tavaci is a kids singing group that she used to love until ballet came along). And lost her first tooth!
Bryant and Bryson are getting a lot of bonding time throughout it all. Which is good for me because taking Bryson to rehearsals and shows is not easy! My sweet little boy has turned into a terrible two's tornado! Its a good thing he is still so darn cute! He is sitting on my lap right now trying to type and talking about, what else, cars!
I also discovered the only way to get Bryant to a ballet is to have his daughter in it!
I've been so busy with this ballet I forgot to mention that we had a great Thanksgiving with Bryant's family here in Green River. It was fun to see everyone in his family and spend time together. The best part was the day after Thanksgiving shopping with all the girls. All the kids got their own Turkey drumstick. Here is the great picture of it!
The kids and I got out of Nutcracker practice for one night after Thanksgiving and went to UT to surprise my mom for her birthday. It was good to get away and so very good to see my family!
My sister and her kids couldn't be there because they were sick, which was sad, but it was good to see my mom and dad and brother!
Ok, all you really good bloggers. Here is a question for you. I have made a friend list a couple of times, but when I change my template I loose my list. It is so frustrating! How do I keep that from happening?
