It was a sweet day….

A few weekends ago, Samantha and I got started on our HOLIDAY festivities.

My dear friend, MaryAnn, introduced us to the Nutcracker Sweet Tea, hosted by the ballet studio where her girls dance. It was a beautiful early afternoon event filled with good friends, cookies, ballerinas, sweet treats, dancing and a story.

Samantha started the event off quite shy. She was afraid to go up to the ballerinas to have them sign the toe shoe we purchased. But by the end of the event, she was ALL SMILES for the camera AND the ballerinas. She even repeatedly bugged reminded me that she wanted her picture taken with the beautiful “princess.”

(as usual, these photos are in reverse order – the end before the beginning):

While we enjoyed the event with our neighborhood friends, we were fortunate enough to see our dear friends Lacey & Jada (and mom, Jenni!) after their event ended and before ours began:

(we hope to enjoy this event WITH those beauties next year!)
