Snapshot: Santa brought tickets!

Santa made this theater-loving family happy by bringing all of us tickets to see the fabulous Billy Elliot at the Kennedy Center.

Grandma Donna loved the tap-dancing the most, while the girl urchins rocked out to the "Angry Dance" and the tall boy and his dad (ardent Thatcherites) snickered in spite of their best efforts at "Merry Christmas, Maggie Thatcher;" the lyrics are hilarious but a little mean -- so you'll just have to Google them yourself. I loved all of it, and I know one thing for sure:

I'll never look at a tutu the same way again.
