Over the years, when my daughter was asked what she would like, she would say one thing. It usually was her favorite book at the time, One year on her birthday she asked for a Magnolia Tree. She never has been one to be greedy or want much. That is what made this so much fun. The good deals I found on the internet cinched the gift and the next thing I had to do was determine how I would give it to her. I made a banner that was supposed to say Christmas but I removed the letters to reveal the name "Criss". Then I wrote her a card about the magic of Christmas, told her how much she was loved and how proud we were of her. She had tears in her eyes but still did not understand the gift. I began to tell her to turn the card around and after she read it she started to cry. She was elated.
And this is the view of Times Square from our window!
We were only there a couple of days but we tried to get a lot in. The main thing was seeing the show.
We ate a a little Pizzeria called John's. Some of the best pizza I ever had. We ate desserts from everywhere. When you are in NYC you don't pass up pizza or dessert!
We picked up our tickets at the will call window and decided to see where the stage door was. This is where you might get a chance to see the cast.
We found it! It already had a group gathering for autographs after the matinee show.
This is where my camera went dead! Yes in a mob of people I had no more battery!
Thank God she had hers and gave it to me so we could get the rest! We had to hurry because we had reservations at Sardi's. We still had the show to see also.
Standing in New York City on the coldest day of the season =
Waiting to see if she could get a glimpse of her favorite star= hours wasted
Seeing her face when a dream came true=PRICELESS
Stay tuned for the rest of the story!
