nnabelle and I are giddy with anticipation of our festive outing tonight. Or splurge, as I have been known to call it. After hearing about it for weeks from me, David very generously ( and might I add sacrificially as this is about as far from his cup of tea, as it gets ) said to me, " let's do it" and then of course I squealed and hugged him and said " really ?" and then happily ran to book tickets to see The Nutcracker .
And they aren't even the cheap seats. It's our last big downtown Seattle hurrah, now that our house is for sale and we are hoping to soon be moving closer to our family and away from this area.
We girls are gladly making the most of our last Christmas to be in the majority in this family, with our sugar-plum fairy notions and love of twirling! It's one of those girlhood dreams of mine, to watch The Nutcracker, live and in person! And since acquiring a little girl all my own, the wish has only grown stronger. And to hear her talk about it with such excitment, just makes my heart swell with happiness. Cutely enough, she usually calls it " The Firecracker."
So we are dressing up and going out to enjoy an magical, cultured evening downtown, together...
