The Nutcracker

Princess M's ballet classes put on The Nutcracker each year for Christmas, in lieu of a winter recital.  Princess M has been looking forward to this all year.  She got to be a Mouse in the first act and a Villager in the second.

She also got to learn a lesson in keeping the Sabath day holy, since we found out 2 weeks before the performance that one of the performances was scheduled for a Sunday.  We had a nice talk about it, spoke with her teacher, (who tried to convince us otherwise) but in the end Princess M felt very strongly about not dancing on Sunday.  It was a hard choice for her, but she made the right decision.  We were very proud of her.

Here's a bunch of photos and videos that we took.
