We had the great joy of taking Schaeffer to the Nutcracker Ballet on Saturday. She had been looking forward to it for weeks–and it did not dissapoint. The live symphony music was amazing and the dancers were outstanding. (You know I was taken by the costuming.) 
After the performance, we went on the ‘sugar plum parade’ backstage, meeting the dancers and seeing the stage first hand. 
It’s a day that we’ll not soon forget, the anticipation and excitment in Schaeffer, and her total captivation by the graceful dancers tip-toeing across the stage.
