An Early Christmas Present

Several weeks ago, Abbey began gushing over a poster we saw describing the upcoming "Disney On Ice", "Brave...Merida...Mom, it's Merida! Look!".  We had just watched the movie, "Brave", and Merida is Abbey's new heroine. I explained to her what the advertisement was for, and immediately she started begging to go. A few weeks before Christmas, I didn't think it was wise to shell out the money for all of us to go to this show, so I told her that I didn't think we'd be able to go this year...maybe next.

A few days later when I got the mail, I had a letter from a friend of mine that works for a local radio station. I opened it, and low and behold, there were 4 complimentary passes to "Disney On Ice"!  My friend just thought that we might enjoy them. Abbey was ecstatic!

The day before the show, Abbey started running a fever. She had the illness which I was to get a week or so later. Her fever at times was as high as 104.7! On the day of the show, she wasn't fever free, but it was definitely cooler than the day before. So, we decided that she would sit between us, so as not to infect anyone else, and we would go.

Getting ready to begin

A bit weak eyed, because of a virus, but oh so happy to be here!
We saw Mickey, Minnie, et al, Ariel, Belle, Rapunzel and then, finally...


My two were enthralled throughout the whole show.

I'm grateful to my friend for giving us the tickets which allowed us to have a great family outing with very little expense!

  1. What a fun blessing to have friends provide for you in that way! I bet both kids, but especially Abbey, were even more entertaining for you to watch than the show itself!
