And we had a thoroughly lovely time last night. My girls are getting to the age where we can make something like this an annual tradition.
Here Annie presents the new
lost tooth gap in her mouth. The other one is wiggling around in there too so she'll definitely be singing "All I want for Christmas are my two front teeth..." this Christmas Eve. I need to find our Chipmonk CD with Alvin singing that song. It's too cute! The renegade tooth cost the tooth fairy a whole buck but the experience and timing were Priceless.
This picture also records how mature Chelsea has become almost overnight. It's a little sad but it's lovely and priceless as well and I do treasure the experience.
Then there is my oldest daughter who, between college schedule and work, we hardly ever see. For her to be able to join us was as magical as the evening itself.
I presented the girls with each a different illustrated version of The Nutcracker and a minature wooden nutcracker (each in their favorite color) with the date of our Nutcracker date written underneath.
And, to crown the moment forever, a newspaper reporter stopped the girls and I as we walked into the Rosa Hart Theatre and took our picture for the newspaper. How cool is that!?!
Treasure the holiday. Treasure the moments. Treasure one another.
