Yesterday was girl day with my sweet Rose and my mom, Meme. We went to lunch at Emma's favorite place the "Bird" or Red Robin to the rest of the world and then we went to the Mini Nutcracker at a local school. It is a shorten version of the great ballet and it is done by the local parks ballet school. It is so pretty and so much fun. It was even more fun with my best friend and her sweet daughter also in the audience and we got to see them before and during the break. Emma was thrilled to see her friend. Next year we will work on getting tickets together.
This is the second annual girl's day to see the Nutcracker, and we had so much fun. Emma was so thrilled and loved the time without little brother. Meme and me enjoyed seeing her so happy and so in love with all the pretty ballerinas. I will admit I would love to be a candy cane fairy:) Plus we got mommy/daughter time together as well. Special for us on so many levels! It was a fabulous day and full of fun memories with my special girl and my mom!
Enjoy some photos from our fun day!
Emma before we got dressed with her new ballerina nutcracker!
Dressed in the cute nutcracker outfit I found at a local consignment sale, it is big so hopefully she can wear it next year too.
Photo bombed by little brother, who was sad he was not going with us.
My Mom, me and Emma all dressed up and ready to go!
We finished the day off with some muffin making in our aprons. We let Taylor in on this one. I am in my pjs and my hair up but a sweet moment to share!
Memories are wonderful and I will linger on this special day for a long time. I love special days with my sweet girl and having mom with us is icing on the sugar plums:)
