Moscow Ballet's Great Russian Nutcracker

Sunday was just as tight-scheduled as Saturday, but it was a great day.  The children did a live nativity during the morning worship service at church.  So cute!

When church was over we hurried to the Fox Theatre in Detroit to see Moscow Ballet's Great Russian Nutcracker at 3:00 p.m.

It was a sell-out performance, and there were no empty seats at curtain time.

The ballet was awesome!

~ Gorgeous scenery and fabulous talent ~

To get in the spirit of the Nutcracker ballet, I found the cutest nutcracker holding a teapot and teacup.  Isn't he cute?  

When the performance was over, we hurried back to church for the 6:00 p.m. Christmas candlelight service. It was my responsibility to oversee serving punch and cookies afterwards, so there was no playing hookie.  ;-)  I had a great helper - thanks, Lynda!

It was the perfect ending to a wonderful day!


  1. What an amazing day you had! The scenes at the Ballet were stunning.

  2. Oh, what fun! There is nothing like a children's nativity, especially is some of the children are in your family. And your Fox Theater looks like a magical place, just as Atlanta's is - a perfect setting for a holiday classic. We'll have our candlelight service tomorrow night, it is a highlight of the season for me. I'll be playing the organ for the hymns and singing in the choir. Merry, Merry Christmas to you!

  3. What an awesome day! So beautiful Phyllis!


  4. I was just talking about when we saw White Christmas at the Fox and they made it snow at end of the show - such a great theater.

  5. Now this is the way to celebrate Christmas with the Nutcracker, then candle light service at church. Oh I love the nutcracker with tea that you found.
