(I've got a cheap flash in my Amazon cart. I think it's time to start working with a flash a little, after all these weird-looking indoor Christmas photos!)
So we moved outside for better lighting, but my settings were wrong again and someone was obviously done with pictures at this point!
We went to evening mass downtown, picked up some takeout from Spaghetti Warehouse, and then Steven dropped us off at the theater while he took the three littlest kids over to his sister's house. It was a lovely evening with my girls!
We ran into some of our good friends during intermission!
And afterwards, the girls got to meet Clara and the Nutcracker Prince! Such a fun time!
Next year we hope to attend one of the (much cheaper) student matinees, but this was a special treat to get to go to the last evening performance of the Houston Ballet Nutcracker! Thanks, St. Nick!
