When my mom and Dad were here for Christmas my mom reminded me of something and I want to write it here so I remember it.
In November 2005 we went to Maine for Thanksgiving. Part of our visit included taking Liz to see the Nutcracker. We know the people who run Maine State Ballet and we were able to take Liz to meet the SUgar Plum fairy and the Nutcracker prince.
IN preparation for this nigh we had talked with Liz lots about going to see the Nutcracker, and we had played some of the well known music for her, so it would be a little familiar.
That night we got dressed up. Grandma put cute curly ribbon in Liz's hair and we bought a fun ornament. Liz sat on Grandma's lap as the ballet began.
After several songs and dances the traditional "March" music began to play. Liz turned to grandma and said, "Grandma! It's the Nutcracker!" IT was at that moment that it all clicked!
