Ten on Ten: December 2010


I was so happy that Ten on Ten fell on an exciting day this month. The Big Ballerina had a Nutcracker performance today. And luckily, I helped out in wardrobe. I burned my thumb on the curling iron, steamed a nice section of my palm, and poked my leg 100 times with the needle, but having the freedom to wander the halls and take pictures made it all worthwhile. 









 
(This is a "big ballerina," but she's not my big ballerina.)

I feel like I must live in a cave, because until Sloan mentioned that little elf, I had never heard of him. . .I knew Wisconsin was behind the times, but I didn't realize how badly!

love the last photo. . .very cozy!

Great shots, Kim! Love the Nutcracker, and you're so lucky your daughters are ballerinas. My daughter won't go near a tutu. Kinda makes me sad.
