It's Gone

I could just feel the manliness oozing out of me tonight as I sat down in the auditorium with Jesi and Grace to watch a performance of the Nutcracker.  Two hours of men in tights.  Enough said.  However, I must admit that I was quite entranced by the amazing talents and skills of the performers.  I have never been to the ballet.  I can honestly say that I would like to go again.  Not tomorrow!  But someday.  And the girls just LOVED it.  Graci was actually cheering out loud at some of the lifts.  That girl wants to be a performer so bad.  An actress, a dancer, whatever.  But she really wants to be up on stage.

On the way home, I asked Jess and Graci what they were most excited about for Christmas.  Jesi replied: "I like that it is Jesus' birthday and I like the presents."  Graci's answer?  "I'm excited cuz it's on Sunday and church will be shorter."  Ah, Grace.  Such a unique perspective on life!

Now somehow I just have to get my manliness back before I coach the boys' basketball game tomorrow...!
