Holiday kick-off

Hello everyone.
I trust your holiday weekend is going well.
We returned home early because hubby had to work today..but our Thanksgiving was wonderful!
I want to share a couple of pics from our evening at the theater.
Every year we try to see a live production around the holidays.  This year we chose "Mary Poppins".
It was a delight!
 Kelly and Kayla, and Melissa and Maddie went with me this year. Zoey went last week with my daughter Erin.
We usually try to have a nice dinner before the show. Tomato Brothers was our choice of eateries this time around. It's a great Italian place we love to dine at for special occasions.

 The girls get new dresses, and LOVE the whole evening spent together.

I cherish these special times we share.
This marks the official start to the holidays for our family.
Enjoy your Thanksgiving weekend everyone!


  1. Such beauties, all of them! Hope you are having a great weekend!!

  2. Sounds like a great time!!!
    You are certainly blessed with all those pretty girls!

  3. Just precious Debbie...a wonderful start to the holidays!

  4. Hi Debbie,
    Glad you had a wonderful time! Great pictures!

  5. What a fun tradition! Where do you go to see the play? We don't do this enough, although we did more often when I worked in downtown Chicago.

    You have a beautiful family...what a bunch of sweeties! :-)


  6. What pretty the pics. SOunds like a fabulous time.

  7. I Don't even need to ask, I See Your Thanksgiving was Full of Family, Fun & Fabulous Memories... xox

  8. Debbie- this is one of the best holiday traditions I have ever heard of! Look at those beautiful smiles! How much fun to get a new dress and then have somewhere fun to wear it to. I am so glad you are having such a grand time with your family and sad your hubby had to work today- mine, too!
    Hugs- Tete

  9. Debbie- What a great Holiday tradition. I do think that is the true stuff that family is made of...doing things together year after year - just because! I love all your little girls (big ones too). Do I see some red-heads in the crowd? Whichever little gd is in the last picture reminds me a lot of our 8 year old and coloring and the general look. Is she a sweet child? And look at those red ringlets!!! Holy Cow! They look like they are having so much fun. However, I can't believe you took them to an Italian place! We would have tomato sauce smeared from tip to top with SweetCheeks! You are a brave soul~

    I hope you don't have to work too hard over the Holidays. I just finsihed up my shift and am off for 4 days...and of course, they are packed full of things-to-do already!

    You should see "our lake" today. The wind is fierce and the waves are pounding in and freezing as they land. I think it will be hard to make an ice-skating rink this year.

    Have a wonderful weekend. xxooDiana
