The Nutcracker has Begun

Lily Wen is in the local performance of the Nutcracker. It is all children from our area and they practice for 2 months before the performances. It has been a wonderful experience so far for Lily and she has enjoyed every bit of it. She had 2 performances this morning for the local schools. She has 3 more performances this weekend so I am sure there will be many more pictures to show.
Lily D and Lily Wen in their doll costumes.

The gift of the dolls is presented to the audience.

Isn't she adorable?

All 3 of the dolls.

Lily was also part of the China dance (kind of appropriate don't you think?)

She is concentrating so hard.

Those sponge rollers really worked!

How sweet is that? I love the picture of the Lily's together, what a sweet friendship they share.

Wish we lived close enough to come see! Lily looks beautiful in both of her costumes. You must be soooo proud!

Happy dancing . . .

I'm back.....Lilly is wonderful...I hope you got my email this morning. When I think of her I still am smiling...I think she is just beautiful!!

Margaret they are all absolutely beautiful. I remember Astrud's first dance recital, I just thought she was the most beautiful child in the whole wide world. Enjoy every minute because one day really soon you will look in to her eyes and you will still think that she is the most beautiful , but she will be 15. They just grow up so fast, so don't miss a beat ok.
Love, Kristy
