Samuel's First Ballet

As we were driving home one day, Samuel heard the commercial announcing The Nutcracker ballet and asked if we could go. In December of last year we read the story, listened to the CD, watched the video and danced to the music. So of course I was ready to buy the tickets.

He was sooooo excited to walk into Bass Hall in downtown Fort Worth. He went all the way up to the balcony and looked at the city, then came back in to see the orchestra in the pit. We had great seats on the main floor and he was a perfect gentleboy. He sat through 2 hours of performance (20 minute intermission) and almost made it through without squirming, but he sat on my lap for the last 30 minutes.

It was a great way to start this festive season.
