Phew, another year of Nutcracker completed!  Don’t get me wrong, we love watching our wonderful girls perform in such a tradition, unseparable from Christmas.  Who doesn’t love the Nutcracker?  Hannah told us that most ballets are admittedly boring, but Nutcracker is enjoyable!  But it is a week of crazy, late nights and stressful preparation.  It’s a relief to get schedules back on track.  This year Hannah was a soldier and an Arabian dancer.  The Arabian part has always been a favorite! This was Norah’s second time being a mouse.  She is in fact, small and mouse-like… perfectly-suited for that part!
