Just last weekend Jess and I went to see a showing of this Christmas classic at the local community college theater.
We had great seats for a stunning performance.
From the moment the heavy velvet curtains were drawn back, we were dazzled by the graceful movements of the dancers, and our hearts were warmed by the sweet children who took part in the show.
Ballet is a truly magical art, don't you think?
During intermission they had a cozy display of baked goods, fizzy punch, and dozens of brightly painted Nutcrackers for sale.
Jess and I treated ourselves to a couple of red velvet cupcakes and cocoa cookies.
We had a wonderful night at the theater. Have you seen the Nutcracker this Christmas season?
