This may be my last post until after Nutcracker. This week should be rough. The girls have practice for 3-4 hours every day this week leading up to dress rehearsal on Thursday night and performances on Sat and Sunday. What a magical time it is though. Abby has a liturgical Ballet recital last Friday as well. It was one of the most beautiful things I have seen them do to date. I was able to sneek a few pics of Morgans regular ballet class this week as well. She is full of natural grace that amazes me every time I have a chance to watch her. I had to include a picture of Parker. He is such a trooper this time of year. He helps me shop, goes to dance practices, and helps me clean the house. The life of the youngest boy!

The purity of snow and children gives this season a magic all its own. The air was cold, but the kids couldn't think of anything except playing outside in the sparkling white. We received the "gift" of 7 inches of snow last night. The kids had a snow day...remember those? With all of the plans for Nutcracker and school productions and the holidays, it was fun to just play in the snow, drink hot chocolate, and feel the bite of winter on our noses. Pink cheeks on little girls...what more can I say!
