Last night Katelyn, Ryan, EJ and I along with my sister Janeie and two of her girls, Kendra and Alyson went to the Nutcracker Ballet.
We had a blast!
Katelyn and I had been to the Nutcracker Ballet when Kate was little ~ like 5 or 6. The boys, Janeie and nor her girls had been before. Janeie said the only thing she could compare the Nutcracker Ballet to . . . Barbie Nutcracker.
We were a few minutes into the ballet when EJ leaned over to me and asked . . . "When are they going to talk?"
I chuckled and told him . . .
"They aren't . . . just watch and you will know what is happening.
I snapped this photo during the ballet . . .
He was intrigued with the dancers and beautiful costumes.
He giggled at the boys in tights.
My phone lens must have had a smudge . . .
sorry for the blur.

Ryan was really into the story when the nutcracker and the mouse began their battle. I am not sure he even blinked.
After a beautiful ballet, we headed out to a very late meal.
Granite City was or destination!
We all had a great time of togetherness and eating.
This morning I asked the boys to tell Daddy about their evening.
"DADDY, WE WENT TO GRANITE CITY TO EAT!"
Not exactly what I meant . . .
"Daddy, THERE WERE BOYS IN TIGHTS!"
"There was a BATTLE with REAL swords! It was AWESOME!"
I will take that one!
Guess they DID have a great time!
What more could I ask for?
