We Defied Gravity

Picture Jillian and I in 2004 listening to Show Tune Saturday Night one, well, Saturday Night. ( I know this sounds geeky. We're unabashed show-tune nerds.)
A song from this "new" show called Wicked came on...we loved it! I went out and bought the CD...we listened to it everywhere we went. Three year old Grace learned the words to almost every song...she literally could sing along to every word of "Popular" at the age of 3.
I spent time on the computer searching for cities where it was playing...dreaming of the day when we could somehow get tickets to see it. Denver maybe??? But no, it was always out of our reach.
In 2007 Jillian got to see it in California while on a Choir Trip. She called me and talked me through it frame by frame...sweet girl. She had a ball, but we wished we were together!
Finally, May 2, 2009! Three girls living their dream! Wicked was everything we wished it would be..."happy is what happens when your dream comes true!"

YAY! I'm so glad you were able to finally go together. I hear it is an amazing show!

I love how close you and your girls are. I'm glad you got to see "Wicked", we wanted to go but couldn't get tickets. Caitlin and I saw it in LA the summer of '07 and loved it, but once you see it you want to see it again. That is so cute that Grace knows all the songs.
