San Francisco Ballet: the Nutcracker

-train ride
-10 second burger king stop- enough time to photograph our tickets
-balcony seating
-a happy, festive family memory- where Ellie repeatedly asked thousands of questions throughout the performance ...including whether or not she could wear a sparkly tutu like the snow princess someday
-dreaming of the sugar plum fairy...





...just some of my favorite moments from our date to see the Nutcracker with Ellie last night.

though, i think my favorite part was when Ellie asked if the baby being pushed in the stroller at the beginning was baby Jesus. yes, i think we are doing a good job of instilling the true meaning of Christmas into our children's brains. i'm so proud.

Ellie looks so sweet in that sleeping picture. I love sleeping baby faces! I bet baby Jesus had a cute one too...
