Girl's Night Out

Last night, Ada and I left the boys at home and headed out for a night on the town.

The teenager who is teaching Ada's little ballet class, was performing in her company's Christmas ballet, and I really wanted to take Ada to see her dance.  I suspected that Ada would love it, and I was 100% correct.  She was on the edge of her seat the whole time, and she did not want to leave when it was over.  I had to convince her that the ballerinas were not coming back out. 

After the performance was over, I needed to pick up a couple of things at Kroger, so our night continued there.  Ada was thrilled to be able to walk beside me instead of ride in the grocery cart, and we even ended the evening at the Chick-fil-a in Kroger, Ada drinking a Sprite and I, you guessed it, a diet coke.

It was a fun evening, and I enjoyed the alone time with Ada.  That is a rare treat since John came into our lives.  Maybe next Christmas we will upgrade to a mother-daughter trip to the Fox to see The Nutcracker. 

It was a fun night with my mess of a girl.  She never fails to make me laugh out loud, and I am so thankful for her, and the fun it has been to see Christmas through her eyes.
