Getting ready backstage. Can you tell what I got for my birthday?

Me and my dad.

The dancers were all awarded roses and Chistmas gifts after their performance. If only A would have stepped forward a bit! From my vantage point, all you can see is her red dress.

It's a Nutcracker Christmas ornament. How appropriate!

Tired little dancer!

And, finally, a real smile from M. I couldn't have asked for a better birthday gift. Mostly I just get lots 'o attitude.
