All Things Nutcracker

Our daughter’s third birthday is around the corner so OF COURSE there’s a Nutcracker theme. Since she saw the performance in November, she has been twirling, arabesque-ing, and leaping everywhere she goes.

We even took her to Swan Lake this past Saturday which further expanded her little world.  I’ve now got Tchaikovsky on my iPhone so we can roll around the grocery store to the tunes. Here are several photos of what David and I are putting together for her day.

Nutcracker assembly line – some table top nutcrackers…and larger one to poke your head in!
