The Nutcracker

On Saturday, Peyton and I spent a girly day out going to see the Nutcracker!

Peyton & Mommy

We started by going out to lunch together….I had visions of a little tea room where everything was very girly and fancy.  Peyton wanted a cheeseburger.  So, we went to the Denton Square and ate at the Denton County Independent Hamburger Company (http://www.10best.com/Denton,TX/Restaurants/American_Continental/69182/Denton_County_Independent_Hamburger_Company_Denton_TX/) Still an experience and GREAT burger, I must admit!!

We did a little shopping/site seeing around the square, then headed to the performance.

It was the first time for both of us and was a really well done show!  Peyton is learning a part in from the Nutcracker in her dance class and will perform it this Thursday as a mini-recital, so she was very excited when I told her that I had gotten us tickets to see the real thing!

I think that we both enjoyed it very much (esp. the cookies at intermission!) though there was about a 15 minute part near the end we could have done without!  I think that we were both starting to get tired and it seemed a little redundant!

But, with that our dose of “culture” for the holidays is complete!!
