Does anyone else feel like December is kicking them in the face? Today is the 18th and the last 2 1/2 weeks have been a blurry tornado. Christmas is in one week and I am about 40% ready. And that’s being generous.
A lot of week last week was dedicated to Isabelle’s participation in the Nutcracker. She had lots of late night rehearsals and then performances Thursday, Friday and Saturday. She was cast as one of the little peppermints that comes out from under Madame Ginger’s skirt. Seriously it was the highlight of the ballet..I may be partial but these little kids STOLE THE SHOW.
I watched most of the performances because I couldn’t help it. Her two minutes was totally worth the entire two hour show… she does this one little part where she runs out in front and waves to me in the audience and I wave back because I am cheesy and my heart explodes. I mean, she’s five.
My mom is over the Peppermints, she does the choreography and the costumes and even built the giant dress that has to be hoisted by a lift up and onto Louie, who plays Madame Ginger ON STILTS. He is great, totally perfect for this part.
