The Nutcracker~

Lucy and I were gifted with tickets to The Nutcracker this year by our sweet friends Tom and Merribeth.  So on Tuesday night, my Mom, Merribeth, Rachel, Lucy and I headed downtown for every one's, except myself, very first Nutcracker performance.

Lucy was SO excited and couldn't wait to leave...so while we waited for everyone to arrive, we had a little photo shoot to kill the time :)

I really hoped that Lucy would love the show, but I had no idea how much she would REALLY LOVE the show.  We had fantastic seats, and she was literally on the edge of her seat for most of the show, and clapped  so enthusiastically after each performance. 

I was gifted this sweet dress at my shower before bringing Lucy home.  She has worn it a few times, but I always thought it was perfect to wear to The Nutcracker...so I was thrilled when we put it on and it fit her perfectly!

During intermission, Lucy wanted to get up and walk around,  There happened to be alot of young 20 year old couples, groups of young girls all dressed up... Lucy had so much fun watching all of them and checking out their dresses and shoes :)

It truly was such a magical night with my precious Girl, and I know we have started a wonderful tradition.


  1. Sounds like such a fun night! Lucy looks adorable and you do too!! Love that coat!!

  2. Lucy in her dress looks like she could have been in the show. It was definately the perfect thing to wear and she made it beautiful! What a fun tradition to have for "girl" time.
