THE nutcracker of all nutcrackers

For my birthday, Ryan got me tickets to see the San Francisco Ballet Company's production of The Nutcracker...and the day was finally here last Friday!! A. Ma. Zing. It was fantastic. Dancing was great, music was great, everything was great. I lived my childhood dreams through the party girls and buffoons.

We almost didn't make it in time...ate dinner in the car (mmm...pulled pork sandwiches).Sat down at 7:05...phew!...and enjoyed the show.
Then Ryan surprised me with a night in the city (hotel accommodations at the Hyatt). We bummed around the city drinking hot chocolate, watching people ice skate at union square (I forgot my socks) and enjoying the lights and decorations (isn't Ryan a cute ornament?).
Thanks to jeff and sarah again for being champion babysitters.

But wouldn't that make Ryan the Christmas tree?

What a fun night! I sometimes feel like we will never have a date night again :) Then I realize I am just feeling sorry for myself and being a tad dramatic :) Merry Christmas!!!

That sounds so much fun. I haven't had a date night forever

Lucky! I took Rachel to her first Nutcracker this year, but it was at the local junior high put on by Mountain West Ballet...Cute, but not the REAL thing!

Looks like fun! I hope you're going to share all the fun things to do in the bay area with us!
