Holiday Spirit

Taking the lead from the PFour Emma, Leif and I headed to the Christkindlmarket at the Daley Center while Finn was rehearsing at the Joffrey today. Emma enjoyed a hot Bavarian pretzel while we wandered until we came across the booth where we found our perfect family holiday gift!I have an extensive collection of Steinbach Nutcrackers and I love them, but today we discovered Christian Ulbricht Nutcrackers.
We all agree that this large Herr Drosselmeyer Nutcracker is the perfect addition to our collection!

From the market and rehearsals we headed to Palos Heights to visit and make pizza with my fellow Joffrey mom and friend, B.Boots and her lovely family.

The pizza was delicious!

Emma had a great time hanging with her fellow dancer S and Finn and C had a ball hanging out together without being trapped at the ballet!

From our pizza party we stopped at an open house hosted by neighbors G&G. We were able to spend some time reconnecting with some amazing Academy families!

All around it was a day that put us all in a the holiday spirit!
