Oklahoma Nutcracker

The Monkey Princess and I went to see the Oklahoma Nutcracker ballet on Sunday.

It was her first time to see "real, live ballerinas".  She was SUPER excited, to say the least!

The Oklahoma Nutcracker has the same music as the original Nutcracker but features things that are distinctly Oklahoma in nature.  For instance, instead of the Sugar Plum Fairy, it has the Sand Plum Fairy.  It was wonderfully done and had several younger dancers.  The Monkey Princess watched in fascination at all the dancers and their beautiful costumes.  She can't wait to get bigger so she can "dance on stage and get flowers."  (Because the ballerinas had flowers presented to them!)  She was so cute and HAD to get her own Nutcracker to put on the tree at home.

When we got home she told Daddy it was "the best day EVER!!"  And that's all I needed to hear!

Love you all!
