Christmas Time is Here!

All Decorated for Christmas!
We got a Christmas tree the day after Thanksgiving. It was a wonderful experience, as Tyler and I drove around the beautiful country side of Virginia to get to the Christmas tree farm. I love picking out a tree, it is perhaps one of my favorite Christmas traditions. An old, 80 year old man owned the farm and he was so helpful and kind! He advised us to walk a lot and never sit down, as that was what had made him so healthy. In fact, I would have guessed he was 70 as he looked so good.
I tried to get a shot of the whole room... It almost all fit. All of our nutcrackers on top of the bookshelf.
A few photos of some of our ornaments.
We tried to get a picture of ourselves in front of the tree.

This Saturday morning it SNOWED!!!
The view from our apartment building.
Our car with snow on it!! A snowy Buena Vista.

Pictures from the little Nutcracker show I was in:

Me as the Spanish dancer in the 2nd Act variations of the Nutcracker

All of the variations (minus Russian), Spanish, Arabian, Chinese, Mazipan and the two standing in the green are representing the Waltz of the Flowers.
The SVU dancers! Sara Lamb (dew drop in Waltz of the Flowers) and Aleah Ingram (Chinese).
Kinsey Cluff (one of my beehives) and I.

I took ballet this semester and Missy (the teacher) owns a studio in town and asked the SVU students in her class to be in her Nutcracker (rather scenes from). I was in the Snow and Flower corp and did the Spanish dance as a solo. We had a show last Tuesday at W&L and then this Saturday at SVU and we have one more show this Tuesday at W&L again. It was a lot of fun and I am so happy that I have been able to dance again!!!

Tyler and I also went to the winter ball last night, but I don't have the pictures on my computer yet! I will get those soon.

Until then....we only have one more week of classes, then finals and then we are coming HOME!!!!
