The girls and I decided it would be fun to invite the grandmas to join us for a Girls' Day Out. I'm not a "girlie" girl by any stretch of the imagination, but I did think it would be fun to eat lunch at a tea room, then head to the ballet. It turns out that none of the tea rooms in our area are open on Saturday, though, so we all agreed on Olive Garden instead.
Before we left, the girls each gave one of their grandmothers a nutcracker ornament to hang on their tree so they would always remember our special day.

I thought the performance was spectacular, as did the girls, but it brought a smile to face when I opened the mailbox yesterday and found these two thank-yous waiting inside.
I definitely think this whole experience was a Christmas tradition in the making!
