Even though I’m not a huge fan of winter in New England – I can’t wait for skiing. That’s one thing I love about the winter season.

And this year James is going to get on the the hill for the first time. We bought his gear yesterday.

He’s psyched too.

(we did get the right size goggles but he wanted to try these on first.)

Just bragging

My daughter Sophia is in love with ballet.

She’s been doing it since she was 3 years old. She’s now 9.

She recently auditioned and was accepted into the upcoming Nutcracker production by the Jose Mateo Ballet Theatre.

If you are looking to see the Nutcracker this holiday season and want something a bit more intimate than the Boston Ballet’s version then you might want to check out this show.

(And if you are a personal friend let me know by email and I’ll let you know which shows my daughter is in. She’s in about half of the performances).
