The Rockettes

Sunday night my friend Jennifer and I took our girls to see the Rockettes in Birmingham. We met Jennifer around 4:30 and headed over. We decided to stopped at the Cajun Steamer to eat. I have never eaten there before, but have heard a ton of great things about it, so we tried it. And man-oh-man, was it good!!!!

Carleigh, Emily, and Avery

We got to the BJCC about 15 minutes before the show started, so of course we had to take a few pictures.

Once the show started, Emily never took her eyes of the stage. Right about the time the Rockettes were to come on stage, there was a "technical difficulty". The curtain wouldn't go up! Oh well, what can you do. The girls waited patiently for the show to start, which didn't take too long.
You know when you go to these kind of things they always tell you you're not aloud to take pictures or video. So that was my plan....not to take any pictures. But everyone around me was, and to be honest, not really even trying to hide it! So as they say "When in Rome". I took a few pictures, but they weren't that great. All I could think about was that I have a $200 zoom lens at the house which would have helped tremendously. Stuff like that drives me crazy!!!

I don't know if you can see the next picture real well, but I was pleasantly surprised that they wrapped the story around to the TRUE meaning of Christmas. The Nativity scene was beautiful and they had a child read the Christmas story straight from the Bible!!!

The best part of the whole night was watching the look and Emily's face!!! I love being able to see Christmas through a child's eyes! This year we have really talked to Em the REAL meaning of Christmas. I'm not sure if she really gets it, but I do know she will hear it from us until she does.
A fun time was had by all.
