At Maddie's school, the 4th and 5th graders reenacted the Nutcracker -- complete with songs they sang, dances they made up, and everyone was in charge of their own costumes.
It was quite a neat thing to see and watch! She was a Chinese Dancer. She came home w/ a picture of what the ideal Chinese dancer was to look like, and I laughed. Yeah... no.
After viewing all my pictures, I had to laugh at all the red & twinkling eyes! Now we know what it means when they say "she had a twinkle in her eye!"
