Our 2021 Nutcracker Party

A few days before the party we spent a fun morning putting together a Christmas puzzle while we listened to BBC's audio drama of ETA Hoffmann's original

A few days later we watched the SuperWhy Nutcracker episode

We didn't do anything fancy this year (popcorn + a Christmas cookie) but I do have daydreams of a stressful-but-gorgeous Nutcracker party some other year. Maybe it'll also include a Nutcracker painting session

We watched the New York City Ballet DVD and all loved it. I was nervous for how it might turn out but we all thought it was well-done. 

We ended the night with our beloved Mary Engelbreit Nutcracker picture book, of course. ๐Ÿ˜‰ 


  1. I was just recently thinking about the Nutcracker. I really want to buy a wooden or Christmas tree toy for the Nutcracker. And by the way, I have already watched the movie "The Peanut Butter Falcon", which you advised, and I really liked it! This is such a kind and funny movie! ๐Ÿ“ฝ๐Ÿ“บ Thanks again for the recommendations! ๐Ÿ™‚❤

    1. We went to a fake Bavarian village (here in the US) a few years ago and went to a Nutcracker museum! My mother-in-law bought us a nutcracker mouse king ornament and it makes me so happy to see it on the tree!

      I'm so glad you liked that movie! Such a great one ๐Ÿ’™


Thanks so much for your comments! I always read them, don't always have time to answer quickly. Sorry about that!
