Way Back When-esday: The Daughter and the Dance

Dateline: December 2008
She-Twin's Age: 7

She doesn't like Barbies. She can't stand the Disney princesses. To my delight---and surprise---she loved The Nutcracker.

The picture above was taken mere minutes before our very first annual Christmas season mother-daughter fancy dress dinner and foray to the ballet.

Just ordered our tickets for Year Two. Counting the days.

What memorable image(s) makes your mid-week wonderful? Dive into those digital photos or scan a scrapbook find and play along with Way Back When-esday. Be sure and link back to participate in the web-wide reverie...and leave a comment when you do!

Congrats Sara!

I agree...the Nutcracker is totally different from Barbie. She is so cute and giddy in that pic!

How exciting! I was debating about taking my Sarah to a high school performance of Cinderella last week but we never found the time. Might try her first movie in the theater over break with the new Princess movie.

Ironically...my post today is also of my Sarah, dressed in a red dress, next to the tree!!

Happy WBW!

Oh she looks beautiful! I was planning to take my princess to her first Nutcracker this year, but it only shows in the week that we are away. Next year...

I took my Bella to see the Nutcracker last year and we were both so moved by the experience. It really is a magical ballet. So glad you two enjoyed it as well!

Nancy said...

Oh, she's so beautiful!! And I love that idea. I've been pondering a mommy and daughter outing ... but I have too much guilt about leaving the other two behind :">

I have so many memories that make my week. I wish I could bottle those times and be able to replay them in real time. :)

Terra said...

she looks fabulous! My folks always take L to the Nutcracker (of course last year she was in it so everyone went multiple times) but this year we took a ballet break and now my folks are taking both girls! Saturday! They are so excited!!!!!!!

Sounds like fun, can't wait to do it too. And such a nice picture of her too!
