Emma and I went on a special date to the Nutcracker Ballet which was put on by the Eugene Ballet Company. Friday before Christmas I picked her up from her house and she looked very pretty. We had a quick dinner out and then off we went to the Hult Center. The performance began at 8:00 and I was a little doubtful that she would make it to the end which would have been around 10:00 p.m. We had great seats and she did great until the final act and at that point decided that she was too tired to stay. I had told her that we could leave any time she felt the need to.
The ballet was really spectacular from the dancers to the set and orchestra. Dave sent his small binoculars for Emma and she really enjoyed seeing each character up close. I forgot my camera so I couldn't get a picture of her before the event. When we arrived back at the house she was very cranky and her dress was beginning to itch.
