Nutcracker Tea

Last Sunday Mawmaw Shirley joined us for a trip to Hammond for Nutcracker Tea.  Stella and I attended this event last year and Daddy was jealous, so this year he made sure that he and Cille were invited also.  We even brought Watts along so he could suffer through the first of many girlie events that he will be subjected to against his will.  The grounds of the inn where the tea was held were picture perfect, so we took lots of pictures!  The tea was also a chance for us to visit with our LaPlace friends.  Mattie Ann and Katie Safley were there, along with Molly Jane and Missy...
 How beautiful are these girls?
 I love that Cille put on her seatbelt to pretend to ride in the golf cart...

 The mommies and Watts...
 Princess hands!

 What a ham...




 Our family...
 The lovely ladies.  Check out the evolution of Stella's face in these next three.  We go from smiling...
 To being silly...
 To pouting after getting reprimanded for being silly...



 Seated at our angel table...
 Oooh!  A nutcracker!
 Watts took it all in stride...
 A few of the characters stopped by before the performance...
 Cille thoroughly enjoyed her treats.  And she really enjoyed using the table cloth as her own personal napkin...



 The food was not as delicious as this drama queen would have you believe, but I'm glad she enjoyed it...

 The kids got front row seats for the performance...


 Then they got to meet more of the dancers!
 Stella and Clara...
 The poor candy cane dancer tried her hardest to get Cille to smile...
 We appreciated her unsuccessful efforts...

 Cille was fascinated with the costumes and could hardly be bothered to look at the camera...








 At the end the girls were invited to dance with the performers.  Cille jumped right in...

 Stella took a little more convincing but eventually made her way to the dance floor...
