There is no way I would be able to re-cap from last August so I thought I would start from this January and share some of my favorite moments from 2010 so far.
Play-off Game (Packers vs. cardinals)
In January, Brian and I attended our very first play-off game. It was the most exciting game that I have ever been to. The energy in the stadium was awesome, too bad we were rooting for the packers though. The packers ended up losing, but it was a very exciting game that ended in OT after a cardinals missed field goal in the last few seconds of the fourth quarter. As in most games there were some pretty beligerent fans, but the difference between most games and this one is that I was the one who was getting pretty angry while brian, for the most part, stayed fairly calm. Overall, we had a great time!
Disney on Ice
Also in January we went to see Disney on ice with a our friends Tanya and her daughter Jacqueline. It was a very exciting night for the girls, but also for me too. I had been waiting to take Makenzie to plays and shows like this since she was born. I was looking forward to sharing my interests of theatre and live shows with my daughters. Tanya and I made the whole evening somewhat of a date night with our daughters and we took them to Olive Garden beforehand and then headed over to the US Airways Center. As in all things done by disney, it was absolutely magical. They had a display of all the princess dresses and the real life princesses waving and saying hello to all the little girls. Makenzie and jacq just loved it! Then we found our way to our seats and watched a show that was fabulous. It kept a 3 and 4 year old entertained the entire time with a brief intermission. I loved the show as well and am looking forward to taking the girls to disneyland this year.
Daddy Daughter Dance
Every year makenzie's school hosts a daddy daughter dance around valentine's day. Last year she was unable to go, but this year I convinced Brian to take her and she was so excited! Before the dance I took her to the hair salon and she got a special updo. She picked out her party dress and put on her dress-up heels (Thank you jessica- the girls love them). Upon arrival the girls got corsages and sat at tables dressed with real linens and ate cake and chocolate covered strawberries. It was like prom for little girls. They also had professional photography on site to capture the special event. Makenzie had fun dancing with all her friends and her daddy. I loved all the pictures but these were my favorite.
