When I was a kid we would go see a marionette show every Easter and Christmas. It was usually an event with Mom and Nana-- we would have breakfast, meet Santa or the Easter Bunny, and then see the show.
Last year we began the tradition with Libi-- Mom and I took Libs to the Bob Baker Marionette Theater in L.A. This year we were able to have Ron come with us. We all went down to see the Nutcracker with some of my MOPS friends.Libs sat through the whole thing like a trooper. She loved the puppets-- but kept calling them "Mary Poppins". Tonight she is looking at this picture saying "A cracker to nuts" or calling him "Humpty Dumpty!"
Afterwards we went to the Pantry for lunch. It was the first time any of us had been there. Excellent breakfast, but giant portions!
