A trip to the Nutcracker

 Every year Dan takes the girls to the nutcracker but this year the arrival of Baby Eli had him out of town so mom got to attend instead.

As you might have guessed I'm a bit less extravagant than Dan on the venue and I was thrilled to find out that there was a shorter/cheaper show at the Zeum so I immediately got tickets.

Front row seats!

Since the show was smaller we were able to meet the cast after the show which was nice for the girls.  We also managed to get a nice family photo (seems the best photos are taken without a lot of thought on our part -- when we try to pose for a photo we tend to have a disaster with one or more of us looking the other way).

All in all it was a great show, and I managed to get a few photos for the holiday card but the girls did mention the differences with the "real" show and I'm sure they are looking forward to next year having Dan back in charge!
