RVA has had the coldest winter since 1996. Remember all that snow we had in PA then? Well not so much snow here but damn it’s been frigid. 0 degrees. Everything melted with our 0 to 45 degrees week. Now below freezing again. And another snowfall today.
Michele says let’s make snow cream. Since this is a southern thing… we came trotting up the street to get some!
Michele makes hers with condensed milk v the milk/sugar YUMMY!!
The Christmas ballet of all time is performed by the RICHMOND Ballet. They include students from the ballet classes. It is highly competitive and you gotta fit those expensive costumes. Tillers asked us to attend with them to see Rylee perform.
OMG it was magnificent! So vibrant in colors, extraordinary talent and a first rate production! I was mesmerized! Rylee did spectacular as a bunny under Mother Ginger. AND. The Carpenter Center is a magical theater. Just a special day overall!
Mikey really did enjoy it. Besides the grumbling. No photos allowed during. I wish they had professional ones. It was gorgeous stage settings!
And after the performance we all went to our favorite Mexican– Cerra Azul.
The little dancer post performance. Check out this big stage and the RICHMOND Symphony as orchestra!!
RVA is starting panic mode. Mike went to the store and it was a madhouse! So here are the first flakes:
then the middle of the storm
and then … at bedtime … snow gently hanging on the trees.. very still outside ..
