The Nutcracker

I surprised the boys and took them to see The Nutcracker. They had no idea that I had this planned for a long time. They were so surprised and excited. The looks on their faces were priceless. The boys have always loved this enchanting play. We have been learning about Tchaikivsky in school this year, so this was a real treat to enjoy hearing his music played live by the Philharmonic Orchestra. The boys brought binoculars to see the dancers up close. It was so adorable watching them, their eyes gleamed with anticipation and excitement. The beautiful scenery and graceful dancing was so exciting for them to watch. The boys loved watching the mice battle it out with The Nutcracker and of course Jonah loved the swirling candy canes and all the other yummy treats. I know the boys will have memories that will last a lifetime.
