Sugar Plum Fairy

On Sunday we headed downtown with Alexis and Lilia to Thalian Hall to see a performance of The Nutcracker. It was Lucy's first big outing to a theatre/cinema/live performance and she was excited (ie standing in her bed at nap time shouting that she wanted to go to the ballet NOW!) Dressed in a pretty pink butterfly dress and matching buttergfly shoes, she was a little overwhelmed by the crowd of people and was curious that the lights were switched off during the performance. She was extremely well behaved during the first half and sat very still. However the second half she was less co-operative and needed to go to the bathroom half way through! She lasted until 5 minutes before the end of the show which worked out perfectly as we could get away before the crowd. So my purple sugar plum got to see the sugar plum fairy and she thought it was magical!
