Nutcracker

Lindsay and I went to see The Nutcracker ballet Sunday afternoon. Our dear friend, Carol Sedberry invited us to be her guests. Thanks Carol for a wonderful experience with my daughter and great memories we will always cherish! I remember going to see The Nutcracker as a little girl. I always loved the magical atmosphere created by the music, dancers and little girls all dolled up. Lindsay loved it (up until the moment she fell asleep). I neglected to tell Lindsay before the ballet that the dancers would not be speaking. A few minutes after it began, Lindsay asked "Why isn't anybody talking?" Luckily, we'd read the story and saw a movie of the Nutcracker so she knew the story line. After it was over, she said "that was so much better than the movie!"

She got to take pictures with a few of the dancers at the Kids Club Party. She also received a sequins Nutcracker that she adores. She takes him everywhere she goes. Looks like we may be starting ballet lessons soon. She has the bug!

I've always wanted to see that ballet, but haven't yet. Did you see it in Waco?

Are you kidding? I can't picture you at the ballet.

I bet you really like those man tights too!

To answer your question: The Austin Ballet with the Waco Symphony performed at Waco hall.

I have to ask though, did you tell the ballerina when she was posing with Lindsay about the dangers of anorexia?

I really wanted to hand her my card. I had to bite my tongue. Her bones will haunt me!
