Avery's Nutcracker II

This past Saturday evening found us at Avery's second performance of The Nutcracker in a different town.  She was just as excited as the first time and did equally as well.  All smiles!  She looked SO little up there on stage, not the big girl we treat her as.  (She's the stinkin' cute Spice Drop in green, four from the left).


She was in movie-star mode when she emerged from backstage, tightly clutching the flowers her daddy had given her, a stage smile still plastered on her face. Her grandparents and Auntie showered her with praise.


We're so thankful to our families who took time out to go to an out of the way town and pay dearly to watch Avery be on stage for three minutes.  She was so pleased you were present and we are grateful for your support!

On the way home, Avery was hinting that since we'd stopped for ice-cream after the show last week, it would only make sense to do so again.  Well, it was COLD so we settled on munchkins and hot chocolate...no complaints.  Wow...how is my little girl this big??



Be glad, Zion Mountain; Dance, Judah's daughters! He does what he said he'd do!
