The Nutcracker at Waco Hall

This past weekend, Granna treated all of her girls to the Austin Ballet performance of The Nutcracker at Waco Hall.

We ran into some best friends before the show started! Mom, Suz, Sav, Adriane, Little Emory, and Mz. Ellis… LOVE THEM!

Sweet Granna and Savi. I remember my Mom taking me to the very same building to watch the same ballet around Christmastime. Blows my mind.

Savannah loved getting to see the orchestra! It was magical to be so close to the action.

Going to The Nutcracker with my daughter is one of the things that I dreamed about as a little girl. SO VERY SPECIAL TO ME. Thank you so much, Granna, for making my dreams come true.

I love that ballet too and watched it every year when I was in the UK, but here in NZ they don't show it routinely so I crave it until they bring it round again, like every 5 years or so!!

This is going to be my first Christmas with my 7 months old baby boy.I want to "create" with him some traditions,as decorating our Christmas tree on dec. 6th,as here in Spain it's Saint Nicholas (my baby's name).Let's see his face when he sees the tree... :)

So much fun!!! You and Sav are beauties!! My mom always takes our family of 6 for a horse drawn sleigh ride through Old Town Fort Collins every year on Christmas Eve after we go to Christmas Eve service at church. We've been doing it since the twinks turned 1 and we all love it!! I love family traditions. Also having three boys and one girl, I would love to take my McKenna to see the Nutcracker next year! Merry Christmas to you all!!
