Yes! Sissy was able to come back stage and take photos of me getting ready for the Nutcracker. Can you say SWEET???

Here is my sign on my mirror, my mouse hat, the baby mice uniforms and the cavalier wigs!

I have really done a good job at applying make up. I even told my sissy that I can't wait to be old enough to wear it to school. Sissy said, "Uh, not for a LONG time".
I like to check myself out in the dressing room. I think I did a pretty good job with my make up tonight. My mom and sister think I am awfully cute.
This is my good friend, Katie Belle. She is a baby mouse, too. She is a lot of fun.
Here is Katie Belle and I just minutes before we put on our very heavy and hot hats. 10 minutes til curtain.
My sister sure does take a lot of pictures.
Here is my outfit, minus my hat. My friend, Joseph, is standing on the chair acting WILD. My mom and sister say that he is hard to handle. I think he is funny!
Do you like my ears? WHAT??? I have big ears, but I still can't hear you : )
These are my baby mice friends. We just performed and we ROCKED! I was excited tonight, because my teacher and her husband came to see me. I love her. My friends names are Rebecca, Katie Belle, Me and Ana Claire. They are so much FUN!
I have been having a lot of fun playing a baby mouse in the Nutcracker. My sissy and mommy say that I am a cute mouse. I was really excited because last night we performed a "Holiday Magic Show" and it was for unfortunate orphans. My mommy asked me who brought the orphans and I told her it was the orphan keeper. She and my sissy giggled at me, but I don't know what is so funny??? I was very touched to be able to make sweet kids who don't have a family for Christmas laugh and have a good holiday treat. My mom and sissy said they were sorry for giggling at me and told me how proud they were of me. I am having fun!
Have a "Mice"...I mean, Nice weekend!!!
