We have been taking Carsyn to see the local Nutcracker performance since she was 15 months old.
And every year she has sat through the show mesmerized.
Last year she cried because she wasn't on stage and I promptly enrolled her in ballet that January.
Fast forward to present and my sweet girl finally made her debut.
She danced a routine to "Mommy Kissing Santa Claus" for the opening act and I could not have been a prouder momma.
Here she is during rehearsal night.
And we're off for opening night..
Carsyn and Miss Brittany before the show.
Are they not the cutest?
And full of personality!
She had a few fans show up!
Watching the show.
We decided to give her a doll as a gift for her performance. I wanted her to have something she would always treasure and I just love American Girl dolls.
And how pretty is the American Girl nutcracker gown?
Carsyn danced with her nutcracker all night pretending she was the lead character. Such a special night with special people.
