Carson's Beloved Nutcracker



The Friday (December 19th) before Christmas, Carson asked if he could "pretty please get a nutcracker". We went to good old Wally world and Carson picked out the biggest nutcracker they had (as tall as Hannah). He was so very excited about this purchase and also very grateful.

I thought the nutcracker would soon be forgotten but I was wrong. Carson has carried "Nutcracker Ray Greener" (The name he gave him-Ray is Carson's middle name) around with him everyday and to every event we have been to. He loves him, he plays with him, talks to him, and sleeps with him.

On the first night we had him he asked me if I thought that he would come alive during the night (you know from the book and the story). I said I didn't know and we would just have to see.

Well, guess what, he did! Every night the nutcracker would fall asleep at point A and every morning he would be in a different spot. There is nothing like magic and I hope we continue to have lots of magic in the Greener household for many years to come...

Soooo, did the nutcracker 'go to sleep' like I told him it would after the Christmas magic was gone???
