We were excited to be able to go to the Nutcracker at the Morris Civic this morning. It was a wonderful performance. The costumes were bright and pretty, the scenery updated, and the choreography changed. The dancers were excellent. It was probably the best Nutcracker we have seen for a school performance (maybe any performance). The only one that may have been better was when there was a live orchestra.
But what made the morning even better, was the chance to take four girls who have never seen the Nutcracker with us. To top it off, our friends, Kristi and Casteel drove over from Ohio to watch the show with us. We used to attend together while they lived here, and it has been years since we were able to.
