I have to admit I was SO EXCITED to go to the Nutcracker with my boys on Friday night:)
I am not sure they totally shared my enthusiasm--but they were all sweet about it.
I heard TJ tell Coleman (who was pretty bummed to be missing a school Christmas dance) that he needed to "man up and have fun because this is really important to Mom" They didn't know that I heard that conversation--so cute! And it worked! They all had great attitudes even when I required them to be in shirts and ties.
I brought 4 of the boys while Brad waited to bring Connor a little late as soon as he got off work. Brad ended up coming in during the opening scene alone. I was so disappointed that Connor wasn't coming, but I am not sure he was too broken up about it. He has seen the Nutcracker more than once already, but he was missed by me!!The Tivoli theatre is classic and delightfully ornate, making it so fun to be there! The ballet was beautiful and the symphony wonderful!! I loved it!
During intermission (or half time as my boys kept saying) Brad treated them all to a snack from the refreshment bar and I required some pictures!
How I LOVE these boys! They were such good sports!
