The Nutcracker 2014


Bo & I took all 3 of our girls to The Nutcracker matinee on the Saturday after Christmas.  We hadn't been since Bec was 8 or 9 years old & finally felt the littles were old enough to sit & watch the show in its entirety.

We all got dressed up in our finest duds & headed into town.  (Yes, that's I'm calling Houston, the big city, 20+ minutes away) :-)

We went extra early so the kids could look around, shop for souvenirs, eat lunch, etc...but we got there SO early that they wouldn't let us up the escalator!  We ended up walking over to The Hard Rock to have an appetizer lunch.

Once done, we went back to The Wortham Center to shop & enjoy some drinks before the show.

Having fun with photo filters!

We had pretty good seats in the Grand Tier. (Easy in, easy out, right in front of the accessible seats in case Maggie wanted to stand up, she wouldn't block anyone's view & no obstructed views)  We were about 15 mins into the show when Izzy & Maggie asked Bo & me separately, but at the same time, "When are they gonna start talking?"  Oops!  I guess we forgot to mention there was no talking or singing in a ballet!  You'd think they'd know this since they both take ballet, but in their ballet classes, they sometimes sing the songs out loud.  Oh well, they quickly got over it.  Bo got to enjoy sitting next to Maggie for the first half & I got the pleasure in the second half.  (Note the sarcasm in "enjoy" & "pleasure")  ;-)  Actually, she didn't do too bad...nothing a bag of candy couldn't fix. ;-)

We actually made it through the entire show & the girls seemed to really enjoy it.  It was a great afternoon & hopefully we'll continue going back every year.
