For the last two years Papa has bought Gabby and I tickets to the ballet tea party that benefits the local Nutcracker performance. Gabby looked forward to it for days (because that's the only amount of time we let her know about it). She was in awe from the moment we walked in to the hundreds of people flooding the reception area. As soon it was time Gabby stood in line to get her hair and make-up done, then she got her nails painted, and finally we walked in to choose our sweets before searching for two free seats. As soon as we were seated and introduced to our table the performance began. The ballerinas performed each scene shortened totaling 20 minutes of dancing. Gabby never took her eyes off the the wonderful dances.
