Congrats to Abbey. What an honor. George's daughter was in the Nutcracker when she was growing up also. Abbey will love it---and she's perfect for the part. I know you are proud of her.

Hugs,
Betsy

Congratulations to dear Abbey (and you Mom behind the scenes) ... quite an honor. I took ballet lessons as a child and so did my daughter ... dancing in the Nutcracker would be a dream come true!
