The Ballet

I won tickets to the Moscow School of Ballet's version of Cinderella off of the radio. I took Abigail last night and we had the time of our lives. It was so much fun looking at everything through the eyes of a child. She oooed and awwwed over everything and when a ballerina would come out with a sparkly outfit (the fairy godmother) she said "Pwetttyyyyyy". She marvelously sat through the whole thing and we had a magical evening just the two of us. She wore her pretty white dress and the pink cloak that her Aunt made her and she looked priceless. As we walked into the place, everyone stopped and said "Oh she's soooo cute!" Little Abigail had everyone's attention and even during the performance people kept looking at Abigail who was taking it all in and loving it. Right before the ballet started, one woman turned around and did a little clap to Abi and said "Oh goodie, it's about to start!" to which Abi gave a little squeel of glee!(and everyone laughed). Our tickets were amazing, we were in the third row and in the very center. You couldn't have asked for better seats! What a marvelous gift from God to "His girls".
