The Nutcracker Ballet.

The girls and I went to the Nutcracker Ballet this afternoon. I wasn't sure they'd make it through the whole thing but they loved every minute of it. It didn't hurt that the performance was in a vintage theater and I gave them a giant bucket of popcorn to keep them occupied.

They both agreed the best part was the "fanciest, sparkliest, prettiest ballerina ever." That's the ballerina in red below. I'm not sure what made her fancier than the other ones but they quickly reached consensus that she was The One.

They were also taken with the "Pepperminis." I think that they liked that they were little girls when they met them after the show. I have to admit that I've never seen Pepperminis in the Nutcracker before but the fanciest-sparkliest-prettiest-ballerina-ever told us that she started out as a Peppermini so they must have been around at least for a little while.

We went to the train restaurant after the show. Your food -- and train whistle cupcake -- are delivered by a real train. And that is pretty darn fancy too!
