It was a full high tea followed by a mini Nut (abbreviated version of the Nutcracker) and then a little photo shoot with a sugar plum fairy. I'm pretty sure I was more excited for this than Maggie was. I could hardly contain myself!
The local tea house, Thompson House Inn, put on the tea and provided a big table full of hats, jewelry, etc for the kids to dress up in. Like the hat she picked?
She gabbed away while stirring umpteen sugar cubes and cream into her orange blossom tea. She kept asking me if I wanted more sugar and cream in my tea and by the end I'm pretty sure I was drinking pure sugared cream...but it made her so happy.
She was enchanted by the ballet. The small children got to sit right up front, a few short feet from the performers and it was magical for her. Her eyes were huge!

We will definitely make this a holiday tradition.
