We were laughing and being silly....
Once we got to the theater, we looked at the giant tree and gingerbread house....

At intermission, a few mice and toy soldiers came out to meet the children...
Then immediately after the performance, we went to the green room to meet a few of the principals. Kate had them sign her Nutcracker book.
Clara came out first and she was so tiny. I am not kidding. I thought she was around 12 but I asked her how old she was and she said 25! She was so good.

We had such a nice time.
It truly is a magical day for us and I am so grateful that we get to do this each year.
Kate's dress is from here.
I found the tartan skirt for me on E-bay months ago (for $24!). It is a gorgeous raw silk from England and was completely the wrong size. It was long and too small. My genius seamstress remade it and I LOVE it. I would have loved it long too but it was not long enough.
