We took Gabe and Mya to see the mini Nutcracker on Saturday afternoon and enjoyed it so much. It's performed by kids and a couple girls we know were in it so that made it especially fun. Before we left, I got some pictures of the kids in front of the tree. And, I think I figured out a way to get Alena to pose for a picture - act like you don't want her in the picture. I was originally going to just get some pictures of the older two but as soon as I sat them down and Alena felt uninvited there she was saying "cheese" and cooperating so nicely. It's always when you least expect it.
