Nutcracker 2008

Katie has been practicing for the Nutcracker since the beginning of October. After seeing a school perfomance done by the opposite cast last Thursday, she had her first rehearsal on the actual stage that night. And she thoroughly enjoyed herself.

They practiced once on stage, and then waited for their notes from Ms. Lynnette. Then they practiced a second time, changed out of their costumes and we went and watched most of the second act until after the Gingerchildren were done. By the time we got home, it was very late, but she had really had fun!

The next morning we had to be back at the stage by 7:30 for 2 school performances, which went relatively well. And then another show Saturday night, and another, which we went to see on Sunday afternoon.

Here are a couple pictures of her in costume as a Gingerbread Doll.

I meant to comment sooner - Katie makes a precious gingerbread doll! :) And she did a fantastic job in the Nutcracker!!!

Good job, Katie! And I'm so glad to hear that you are feeling better!
