{7 Days Until Christmas: The Nutcracker}

My sister invited us to join her at the Nutcracker this year.  It wasn't the major PNW Ballet one...but a smaller, more local ballet company.  It was perfect!  And perfect for kids!  No orchestra, but the dancers were fantastic!  And the theater was small leaving every seat with a great view. 

Carson really wanted to go, so Trevor insisted on joining us too.  We left little Ry at home.....(a babysitter all to himself? he was in heaven!). 

The kids loved it.  Addy sat by her cousin, Paige, and they were on the edge of their seats most of the show.  My favorite part was at intermission when Addy asked "Mom, why are we still in our seats?".  When I told her it was intermission (aka..'half-time')...she said..."You mean there is MORE??"  She was so excited for the second half.  The snow, music, dancers (a lot that were her age!), costumes, the Snow Queen....a little girl heaven.

Why I {Blog}

My little blog is a family journal. I include things on here I want to remember years and years from now. So when I post a zillion is because I want to have it for my posterity. So please forgive the often posted-picture overload.

Currently I am trying to focus on my photography skills...reading, reading, reading, and taking pictures when I can. Then edit, read, read, read some more. I finally feel like I have a basic understanding of exposure...hooray! I updated my blog template so I can display larger photos because...aren't pictures better than anything I have to say anyway?

More about me here.
