The Nutcracker ~ 2017

This is our third year seeing the Nutcracker and it was just as wonderful as the first year. My mother-in-law joined my daughter and I this year. I believe my mother may join us next year. We will see.

This year I let my daughter talk me into getting balcony seats. I don't think that I will be doing that next year but I did enjoy the view of the ceiling. 

This year we have a different Sugar Plum Fairy but she did a wonderful job!

They all did a magnificent job and I hope that we will continue to go each year!

I hope that you attend the ballet whenever you get a chance. To see my previous posts about the our Nutcracker visits see here and here.

Seek the arts!

  1. Dear Mrs. Shockley,
    How nice that your mother-in-law joined you. It is especially nice to see a photo of her. You share such wonderful things about her.

    Warmly, Kathleen

    1. Hello Kathleen! Yes it was nice having my mother in law there. She had a good time! I figured it would be okay to share a photo of her now. It's been long enough.

  2. I would vote a balcony seat too! LOL
    You all look lovely and warm!!! We are having many news reports of your big freeze in the US !!! It was 105f yesterday here! LOL

    1. The balcony seats were okay but there were more kids up there than downstairs. You guys have been hearing about our horribly cold weather overseas? It has been awful. Last Tuesday the weather report said that Indiana was colder than the North Pole! Horrible!!!

  3. Oh yes ..... we get a lot of US reports on our news in Australia .
