She loves to listen to the music and watch the dancers. We have the music on our iTunes account so Grace is very familiar with all the different parts but each year it is good to have the visual reminder of what dances and costumes go with each part.
Grace looks all around the theater (which is a beautiful old one!), watches the other people, comments on the organist who plays before the performance and during intermission, and carefully chooses the one, special nutcracker that she loves and wants to take home for the collection she has started.
Thank you Nana and Ba for this nutcracker Grace chose. She held it all through the show and came right home to dance with it like Clara did with hers!
