You know in the movie Elf when Buddy the Elf sees the department store Santa Claus and he screams out, “SANTA!” with all the excitement of a brand new puppy who piddles on the floor? That’s how excited Lily was about the Nutcracker. Especially, I think, because Sam was taking her. And they were dressing up. And no one else was coming along.
She was really excited.
There are much better pictures than these on Sam’s new fancy camera but these are the two I snapped with my phone.
She was fairly glowing when she got back home.
