We went to the Nutcracker on Friday. It was beautiful and the costumes were amazing. My son was not exactly thrilled to attend the "ballet". However, a little "culture' won't him! My girls enjoy dressing up more than actually watching the show. They wore their Christmas dresses and their shiny black shoes.
It was a sold out show so that made it "alive" and many "Bravos" were yelled out! I love going downtown during the holidays. Everything is lit up and the big Christmas tree is in center with everyone ice skating. It's beautiful.
