As you know, Amara LOVES the book PINKALICIOUS and had her very own Pinkalicious birthday party. So when Brian and I found out Pinkalicious, THE MUSICAL was coming to Parkland College Theatre, we knew that would be her Christmas gift. Today was the day. She was so excited. She kept telling me and everyone who would listen that today was her special day. And it was....

Look at Amaralicious!

She got to pick ANY restaurant she wanted to go to for dinner...and she chose Pizza Hut! She loved it.

As soon as dinner was over, she refused to take off her gloves and specified she needed as much pink as possible. A few family pictures and off we headed to the theatre!

( yes, we all wore pink too---need to be supportive, ya know!)

everyone got their very own pretty pink program and magic wand. Amara couldn't wait for the show to start.

The show was only an hour and the whole time, Amara sat perfectly still. She smiled and laughed but has little reaction. She just needed to take it all it...the music, the dancing, the lights, the PINK- and WOW was there alot of pink! It was amazing.

And after the show, when we got the chance to meet PINKALICIOUS herself and have her autograph Amara's book, she quietly walked forward and timidly gave Pinkalicious a hug. Then walked away and BEAMED pink beams for the next hour!!!!

We bought pink cupcakes for the way home and talked about all of our very favorite parts of the show.

it really was a cure performance but nothing is as special as seeing your kids' eyes light up and being with them to experience something they truly love and have waited for. It was a perfect, precious performance and Amaralicious loved it all!
