Nutcracker evening

We had a really, super lazy day today. I slept until past noon...it was great. Then we just lounged around reading and enjoying the 75 degree temps in the backyard. I cooked up a couple Alaskan salmon recipes for my cousin, then we went to see the Nutcracker.
The performance was at Bass Hall in downtown Fort Worth. The building itself was gorgeous inside and out.
I think Avery described the ballet the best. He said, "It was...nice." And it was...nice. The dancing was beautiful and the costumes were really nice, but it was really slow. Too slow for our tastes. We like things upbeat and exciting. The ballet was nice, but it just wasnt our thing. Well, you live and you learn. We're just not ballet people. It was fun to get all dressed up and go out on the town though.
After the show, we walked around the downtown area for a little bit and stopped off at the coffee shop in Barnes and Noble for a hot chocolate and something sweet.
Christmas Eve already? How does it go so fast? MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE!
