Nutcracker "Sweet"

Halle joined ballet a few months ago. She got to be in the Nutcracker this Christmas and she was SO excited for it. This is her with a couple classmates waiting back stage for their turn on stage.

The mints ready to dance. They did such a great job and all their long hard hours of practice paid off. It was such a professional production. I was mighty impressed.

Her friend Taylor came to watch and surprised her with flowers

She also got a couple of nutcrackers for congratulation gifts. She carried her rat king nutcracker around like a baby doll for several days.

Halle loves ballet. She has practice 4 hours a week, and during Nutcracker time it was 8 hours a week. I keep waiting for her to tell me she's sick of it, but whenever it's time for ballet, she is so excited about it. I'm so glad she has found something she loves.

How cool is that? And what a time commitment. I just don't think I'm ready for that yet :) I'm sure it was so fun to watch her in such a big performance.
