Living With a Doll

It is official! We are living with a Gingerbread Doll!!

Katie auditioned a couple weeks ago for the Nutcracker with her ballet studio, and got the call on Friday that she had a part.

Saturday we went to the cast meeting, where she got her part, and she is going to be a gingerbread doll. We are currently unsure of exactly what that entails. It is not the ginger children that come out of Mother Ginger's skirt, but rumor is she will be one of the toy dolls that Drosselmeier entertains the children with at the party in the first act. She is very excited as are we.

More details will be coming later as to the dates and times of the shows she will be in. There are 14 performances, of which I believe she does half.

YAY, Katie!!

Congratulations Kate, whom we have always known is a "living doll"! All that hard work and practice are paying off. Grandpa and I are very proud and hopefully, we can see a performance. It's on to the NYC Ballet next!

Congratulations to Katie!

How exciting! Amy and I look forward to seeing her in one of her many performances. :) I just hope they can still hold it at the usual place... :(
