Mom's Birthday and Radio City Christmas Spectacular








I took my mom to see the Radio City Christmas Spectacular yesterday evening, and it was fabulous! It's not just a bunch of high-kicking girls dancing, though that is part of it. (Being a former drill-team dancer in high school and college, A LOOOONG TIME AGO, I like that kind of stuff.) But, it's a real Broadway type show with a story, actors, a ballerina, ice skaters, singing, and dancing. It was worth every penny for the good seats we had, too.

There is "no photography" allowed, but there were flash cameras going off everywhere. I didn't use my flash, so a lot of my photos didn't turn out well, and there is so much movement, it was hard not to get a blurry photo, particularly when I was trying to be discreet, but I'm so glad I got some photos for the scrapbook.


My sister, her husband, and my nephew met us afterwards for dinner at Spaghetti Warehouse, which was also great. That place has such character as well as good food! I hope you have time to see my slide show.

Mom's birthday isn't until the 10th, but her cancer surgery is on the 7th, so we celebrated last night. I had so much fun, and I know she did, too!

I so want to see this! Maybe next year.... Oh, does it come every year? I think so. Anyway. Looks like such a fun evening.

I LOVE Spaghetti Warehouse. We used to eat there all the time in Memphis. Here? I think only once or twice. Sigh. I need to get out more. ;)

I'm glad your mom had such a lovely evening. I'll think and pray for her on Wednesday.
