One of my favorite Christmas traditions is to take Penelope to the Nutcracker ballet- and now Violet too!
This year though, Penelope got to be IN the Nutcracker!
Her class were "Bon Bons" in the act with Mother Ginger.
It was such a HUGE experience for Pen.
Not only did she have multiple rehearsals (and all in the evening), but she had the chance to see the show from backstage. Getting to see all the performers so up close and in full costume is just magical.
She did such a great job, and we couldn't be more proud of her!
What a fun way for her little sis Violet to get to see the Nutcracker for the first time... watching big sis!
