The girls have been practicing for their first ever ballet performance
for months now.
They could hardly sleep last night they were so excited.
I cried through the whole thing.
I cried because I LOVE the Nutcracker- I love the ballet period.
It is amazing the way the the music stirs my soul and watching the dancers gets my heart.
They are strong, graceful, elegant, and amazing.
I wish my body were able to dance like that.
I wish my legs were strong and smooth-my arms flawless-free from scars and burns.
But, to see my girls dance made me feel like I have all of that, and more.
I sat close to Ollie who was memorized by the show.
Defiantly his first Nutcracker experience.
Top 3 favorite things he whispered to me during the performance:
1. They all have snuggies.
2. Mom, your beautiful- prettier than her, and her, and her.
3. I am going to have really good dreams tonight after watching all those girls.
My little girls were pretty cute, I might add.
Dear Mr. Nielson,
I would love ballet season tickets for Christmas
Love, your wifey.
If you are interested in going to the ballet- there is one more performance
tonight night. Get tickets here.
