Nutcracker March

One of the holiday activities the Minx and I have been most enjoying has been Seattle's 'Nutcracker March'.
 
The Pacific Northwest Ballet's version of the Nutcracker appears to be a pretty big deal round these parts and to celebrate they have commissioned sixty large Nutcrackers which have been decorated by local artists and are dotted all over downtown.  They are then auctioned off on eBay to benefit local charities.
 
Hunting Nutcrackers has been a great excuse for the Minx and I to explore the area, and the Minx now shouts out excitedly when she sees one in the street, walks up to it and pats its feet. 
 
Here are the thirty-two that we managed to photograph.
 
We saw a few others when we didn't have a camera, but the geeky side of my soul is now regretting that we didn't make more of an effort to 'collect' all of them while we had the chance.
Tomorrow we're flying off to the UK for Christmas.  Half of me is really looking forward to catching up with friends and family, but the other half is wondering why we're putting us all through jetlag again when the Minx has really only recently settled into a proper Seattle routine. 
 
A very Merry Christmas to you and yours and thank you so much for all your comments and good wishes throughout the year.

I LOVE the Nutcracker Ballet! I soooo wanted to bring Lily to it this year, but alas, it hasn't turned out...
These Nutcrackers are really beautiful! What a fun game to find them all.
Merry Christmas
