We finally did it! We went to LA and saw Wicked. It was a Christmas present from my mom and we had such a blast. It was a girl's trip, no boys allowed, and so me, Emmy, my mom, my sister (Lindsey), her daughter (Ella), my sis-in-law (Sonya) and her daughter (Maddy) all went on a road trip. That's right, you heard me, road trip. We drove to LA! I was a little nervous about Emmy but she did really well. We also went to the American Girls store, which Ella and Maddy absolutely LOVED. Grammy bought them each a doll (even Emmy got one, but she got a Bitty Baby). Then, for Wicked, the little girls had matching gold dresses to wear (so they could look like Glinda) and got gold dresses for their dolls which, of course, they brought with them to the show. Emmy has a matching gold dress but we didn't get pics with them all together, dang it. Luckily I have a wonderful friend, Randall, who lives in LA who watched Emmy so I could go to the show!!! Thanks, Rand, for being my manny!!! I owe you big time.

It was such a fun trip with the girls. Thanks, mom!!!

Cute cousins!

Mom & Emmy eating crepes at The Grove. She LOVED the crepes!

Emmys first American Girls doll - she kept dropping it in the bag and saying "Uh oh!". We took that doll back and got her the Bitty Baby (a baby doll).

I've heard that's a wonderful show! What a fun gift. You guys are all so beautiful as usual. By the way, love the red dress. Is it from Downeast, cause if it is, I bought it last week. I wore it with the same black shirt underneath too. Good taste :)
