 Carter finally got his second cast off just in time for Christmas. He's down to wearing a brace. Unfortunately, he still isn't cleared for activity.

Evey's Christmas program

 She has such a great group of friends that she's been with since the 2 year old class.
 Quick group shot before the program 
 So cute walking in with candles singing this little light of mine
 She loves her music teacher and always does a great job singing for all the parents

 The highlight of the evening, cookies!
The moms finally remembered to take a picture

Final Nutcracker post

Friday evening is the final dress rehearsal. We are in the home stretch with 2 public performances Saturday and a final public performance Sunday.  
 These sweet angels had a great week together.
 Backstage with my angel.  Audrey told me part of what she likes about Nutcracker is how much time she gets with me.  I'm glad she likes me helping out yet instead of wishing I just drop her off.
 I love this costume.  The angel scene is always so pretty.
 Miss Beth with her angels.  She has been a wonderful teacher for Audrey this year.  Audrey has really grown a lot under her instruction.
 She never wants the week to end
The girls get such a kick out of the fog
My sweet lamb
This number was so much fun and the girls had a great time with it.  Even the rough around the edges guys that work the curtain, etc. enjoyed this number.  They told the girls they stole the show. 
 We had flowers delivered to the dressing room
 Sunday I finally traded my chaperone badge for a program.  I finally got to watch everyone's hard work pay off.
The girls enjoying the cast party. Nutcracker 2016 brought record breaking ticket sales.  That's certainly something to celebrate!

Art Garage

The Medical Alliance playgroup met at the Art Garage for painting and snacks.
 Listening to the directions
 They got to make a cute snowman painting
 I think the owner thought we were nuts for letting all these kids sit together.  She had the table set up for the moms to sit in between. They were so well behaved and proved her wrong.
 Group shot of all the kiddos and moms
 A few of us went out to lunch afterward.

More Nutcracker

 I was able to sneak into the audience one night to get some pictures.

 What else does a ballerina eat at 9:30pm after a long evening of rehearsals? 
 Thursday brought 2 school performances.
