The Queen of all Mouse Queens!
And then came our final show... Yes, it was very sad to close, but we gave it all for our last performance and it was fantastic!
Photobombed by the beautiful Johanna!
Lillie!!! She's the best!
Saying goodbye to Mrs. Stahlbaum. :(
Dew Drop Fairy and Flowers go together.
Jillian showing me how the splits are done!
Waltz of the Flowers here we go!
Savannah, my dressing room buddy with the best sense of humor! Since we weren't in Apotheosis, we would hang out together while I was getting ready for my last scene. She sure liked to tease me about my jammies. :D
Some shots from Waltz of the Flowers. Maybe you can pick us out! If not, you'll just have to take my word for it and believe me when I'm saying that we were dancing there.
Goodnight, Mrs. Stahlbaum.
Each show had a different Clara, so I got a picture with each of my daughters after their shows. I loved how each of them brought their unique qualities and personalities to life on the stage. They all did a fantastic job!
It was so special to see all the dear friends that came to support us at our performances! You all are simply the best and we are so blessed to have you in our lives!!!
Lillie's angelic side and my nightgown. (I like to think it makes me look like Christine Daae.)
Somehow I never managed to take a picture with Drosselmeyer... and we forgot to take a family picture... and I didn't get a picture with Shiloh, Judah, Havilah, and Benjamin! Oops. But let me tell you, a performance is only as good as every member, whether performer or stagehand, makes it. And what happens on stage is only possible by those who make things happen backstage! We are all immensely grateful for my mom, Shiloh, and all the little kids for their hard work, support, and love! They are the best and we love them so much!!!
Tabitha and Shiloh running the backstage show! They were stellar!
Nutcracker 2015. It was amazing. So wonderful to be able to work hard, learn so many new things, stretch as an artist, and shine as a Light for Jesus in this dark world. There were so many special memories made and looking at the pictures bring back all the laughter, love, and fun. I smile just thinking about it. :) I'm so glad to have been blessed with this opportunity and thrilled to be able to dance with such special people that I get to call friends. Nutcracker 2015 has taught me many things, and I'm looking forward to Nutcracker 2016 with my NCB dance family!
Stay tuned because I have one more post coming with all the professional pictures! (And if you want to head over to Eden's blog HERE you can see some of her personal pictures, too.)
