{ Sugar-Plum-Fairy-Delight }





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...

Expecting enchantment.

When I did this with Kezi I cried the whole time and couldn't take my eyes off her face. It was one of my most goosebumply moments as a mama! And wait until you take Jack to see Peter Pan and he gasps when Peter "flies!" I cried all over again!

I am crossing all fingers that you are squeeling and giggling and even tearing up with magical joy!

And house for sale??? Cheers from my scrubbed house to yours. :)

lots of love, Misha
