All I want for Christmas is... a pair of those legs.
Tonight we (meaning all the girls in the fam) went to the Rockettes "Christmas Spectacular" show. It gave us an excuse to get dressed up, (Thanks J, for doing my hair - looked great!) even wearing our nice dresses and wool coats (which were completely unnecessary). The girls were REALLY great, especially considering they were out past 10pm, and totally loved the show. I loved seeing this again, through their eyes. Manda asked "Can we do this on lots of days?" and "Can I be one of those (dancers) when I grow up?" and sang along to most of the Christmas songs she knew. During the nativity she wanted to go up and see baby Jesus too, along with the wise men. Cute. Allison was so excited to tell Daddy that Santa was in the show - to which Manda matter-of-factly added "He SURE was!" Allison's favorites were the rag dolls, and the little dancing bears. Mine, of course, were the toy soldiers! Fab! Thanks a million, Grandma, for the "spectacular" birthday present!
