Of course after that others had to be added, Clara with her nutcracker of course and the Mouse King.
After that I needed Herr Drosselmeyer and a Pirate
Next came a Santa Nutcracker
After that came more and larger nutcrackers
Mac began branching out after that and soon I had a Bear Nutcracker and a Football Player Nutcracker
Feeling really creative the next year he adapted some nutcrackers and made me a Jeeves and a Poirot
We watched some Duck Dynasty the next year and who should appear under our tree, why Uncle Sy
Then this year, after seeing DCI Barnaby's wife Sarah imitate Clint Eastwood he knew I needed a Clint Nutcracker so he adapted one for me.
Like I said, it all began simply enough.
