The night of Rylie's Winter recital, we took her to see The Nutcracker Ballet. It was her birthday present from David and I and it was just a local production of it, but it was phenomenal! We went to dinner first and Rylie chose Iguana Joe's.
We had a great meal (and watched Baylor win!) and were surprised with a Christmas blessing from strangers.....our meal completely paid for by another family we've never even met!
Then we headed over to the performance. It was so cold that night!
Rylie brought her nutcracker we gave her for her birthday and her ballerina Barbie.
They kept her entertained while we waited for it to start. Did I mention we had front row seats?! I didnt take pictures of the performance, but here's some from the website....
This guy was so good!
A few of Rylie's girlscout buddies were there too!
They got to go on stage and try out some props after the show.
And meet some dancers backstage!
Their costumes were so gorgeous in person! The pictures dont even do them justice.
We had a great time at the show and might make this a yearly event. Rylie said it was "the best day of her life!"
