Guess who is going to be a mouse this Christmas?


No word yet on whether Aunt Manda can be persuaded to come watch.

Anna Marie had her first dance lesson yesterday - poor thing, not only did their gear not come in so she had to do class in her school clothes, but the air was out in the building!

Her class is half ballet/half tap. And the ballet part is tied to the ballet company in the county just north of here.

And they do The Nutcracker every year.

And Anna Marie is going to be a mouse!

We're pretty excited. She's pretty excited.

Apparently they've assigned all the kids in her level of dance to be mice. Which is OK by me, because it means she can be in the production without having to compete for a part right off the bat.

And now, I've got the "Dance of the Sugarplum Fairy" running through my head.

At least it's replaced the High School Musical 2 that was there this morning, thanks to AM.

Dance of the Sugar Plum fairy still sends me into a slight panic attack, after our bell choir attempted to play that one (along with three other Nutcracker pieces) the first year we were together. That was two years ago. I'm not sure if I'll ever get over that feeling of stress when I hear that song.

But congratulations to AM.
