Melanie in the Nutcracker

Melanie is 13 years old this year. She has literally been performing in the Nutcracker for 10 years. And for 10 years my family has gone to watch her. Yesterday was no different. My two bros and I grabbed some lunch and headed over to a packed theater to watch her dance….but this time she danced with a boy!! Totally a big deal. Couldn’t help but snag a few photos. 🙂

Melly, you were more beautiful this year than any year before. You are meant to be on that stage. I love you!!
