More Memories: Drafted!

Nutcracker Recruits

Our daughter-in-law Sarah recruited our son and grandsons to fill the roles of “dads” for a party scene in a December production of the Nutcracker ballet.  

A male-to-male talk from their dad convinced them to participate for the benefit of their sisters and mom, all involved in and passionate about classical ballet.  

They were good sports about appearing in the ballet and in costume, especially when they learned that the extensive rehearsals and performances fulfilled an entire semester’s worth of community service hours required by their high school.

This mom and nana thinks maturity looks good on all three of our guys. 



  1. they are such handsome guys! And the costumes make them even more so.

  2. Wow, an awesome double blessing...helping their sisters and getting the community service requirements they need too.
    Doesn't it make us Grandmas and Moms proud to see our kids excel?
    Praying your New Year will be full of promise and joy.

  3. And memories were mae that will last a lifetime!

  4. What a great thing to do. I'm a ballet fan and love Nutcracker -- actually just the second act -- and am overdue for seeing it again. Good looking group!

  5. That's great that they could fulfill their community service requirements this way. Myheart would have been going pitter patter to see so many of my family members in the production.
