Our Little Ballerina Performed Four Times Last Weekend [Videos]

Autumn participated in her second season of The Nutcracker this past weekend. She was a Bon Bon and had the best time performing three times last week. She has been working on this performance since early October at her dance school. For kids her age, the Bon Bons are the only option for her in the Nutcracker. As she gets older she can move on to other roles in the show.

We told her the night before and, well, she was coming out of her room every five minutes saying “Babypants” because she truly loves Caspar Babypants’ music. After an hour or so of this nonsense she finally fell asleep. Continue reading “Caspar Babypants and others at the Northwest Folklife Festival [Video]”
