Do you mind sharing the version of the Nutcracker Myla is looking at? I’ve been looking for one with lovely illustrations. We went to the BSO to see a children’s version of the Nutcraker (shorter) and all the kids loved it. Sophia is particularly inthralled with ballerinas and Angelina Ballerina right now!

It was fun looking through your photos. You have had a very busy month, but looks like it was a very fun one, too. Myla couldn’t be a cuter ballerina. 😉 I’m planning to get Bella started in Feb. I’m hoping she’ll enjoy the science and art form of dance and not just the leotards. 😉

I take Chloe every year to the Cobalt nutcracker!! This year I took Bella for the first time!! It is always so beautiful… Those girls amaze me!! The Williams family are good friends and their girls and Danika Bigley are just stunning to watch!! All if them… So great!!! :)
