The Nutcracker

Samantha and I went to see a production of the Nutcracker today. It was put on by the local ballet company - the Loudoun Ballet Company. They have been doing this production for years and it seems to get bigger and more elaborate each year. The costumes are bright and colorful and the performers are just outstanding. They never disappoint. It is such a nice tradition that we have established each year.

We'll be spending this week talking about Christmas around the world and doing some things to prepare for Christmas, such as making some snowflake ornaments and baking cookies. I think for once we are actually going to be ready for Christmas EARLY for a change!

We are hoping Christmas in NZ will be warm and sunny, though summer has so far been cool and windy. We have red pohutukawa trees flowering at Christmas time. Many people put lights on their houses but we have to wait until after 9pm for it to be dark enough to see them. Christmas wishes to you from New Zealand.
