A Merry Weekend!

Can you guess where we went this weekend? (Saturday, Dec. 17)

The Nutcracker Ballet!

What a wonderful take my sweet girl to the ballet. Five Moms along with 6 daughters enjoyed a day in Oklahoma City....The Oklahoma Ballet with the Oklahoma City Philharmonic put on a spectacular presentation. Lucey was mesmerized.

Here is our group minus one Mom and Daughter who went up to the city before us to do a little shopping. We had a beautiful, sunny, mild day. As you can see by our squinting.

The older girls took very good care of Lucey as we walked around and enjoyed the pre-show activities. The girls met Mrs. Claus, made an ornament, shopped for delightful snow globes etc...

Here we are ready for the show to begin. We had fantastic seats. Center and only about 12 rows up from the Orchestra Pit.

We met the beautiful ballerinas after the show. We were served milk and cookies too.

Today, Andrew and Christian played in the hand bell choir for our church service. It was lovely. After church, the Chaplains invited everyone over to the Patriot Club for a buffet brunch/lunch. It was quite the spread. There was a special guest....

This Santa was amazing. He wore a lovely coat and had a pipe too. He was very sweet with Lucey. This is the first year Lucey has not been afraid.

The Troops...very full and very happy. Minus Adam....who Arrives Tonight!!!! The day we have all been waiting for! Our first born comes home tonight. We can hardly wait!
