I got a chance to see the Nutcracker ballet over the weekend - have you ever been? It's such a fun magical holiday story - I'd seen it once before when I was young and being a ballet dancer was definitely high on my list of "Things To Be When I Grow Up" so it was really fun to see it again. It was performed by a youth ballet - these kids were really, really good! Man, when I was that age I had my nose constantly stuck in a book, not dancing at a semi-professional level...anyway, here's a couple beautiful images that capture some of the same wintery magic that the Nutcracker has...enjoy!
