Gentri Lee: Sister Date- The Nutcracker

Sister Date- The Nutcracker

I hope you are all having a lovely weekend! Last night I took my sister to see the Nutcracker for her first time ever! She's in her twenties and had never seen it... Being dancers (well we used to be), and since schools will often go see it for a field trip, you'd think she would have seen it at least once before, nope. So for part of her Christmas present- I took her to see it.
*NOTE* I forgot my camera... my iPhone had to do.

We first showed up at the wrong theater (doh!), but luckily the correct theater was a short walk away.

It was beautiful and the dancing was superb.

Needless to say- she loved it! We had a great time and enjoyed talking "dance" for a little bit after.

How was your weekend?? Did you do anything fun??

I love the Nutcracker! I went to see it for the first time a few years ago with a close friend from college. My weekend was amazing, we do a Christmas Cookie Baking party every year with all the girls from my family, and yesterday was the day! Always so much fun. And PS - love the snow on your blog. How in the world did you do this?!

Oh! I LOVE the nutcracker. Back when I was a wee little child I was in ballet and our group did the nutcracker.. I was a snowbird and one of the arabian dancers.

I used to go watch another dance company's Nutcracker every year for school. My friend was one of the main dancers my freshman year and so I was able to go backstage and meet everyone. (they had dancers from BYU come and play the sugar plum princess and the prince)

so fun! I'm jealous!
