Big Surprise for The Bigger Girls

A few months ago I purchased advance tickets to the "High School Musical" musical. We didn't tell the girls at the time because I wasn't sure if we could afford them and I thought we might have to resell them. We kept them and last night was the big night out. I wouldn't tell them where we were going (I \love doing that) they had some pretty interesting guesses. I had to put a stop to the guessing game after Kiki asked if we were going to meet the Jonas Brothers. Nothing is going to seem exciting after those kinds of thoughts.

When we parked there were tons of families pouring in and I was getting worried that someone on the way in would blow it, but it turned out that the mom on the elevator with us was doing the same thing. KaiKai figured it out as we came up to the front of the auditorium and absolutely FREAKED OUT. That was the best part for me. They were soo much more excited than I expected. That reaction made it all worth it for me. It was a great show and we danced and sang along and had a great time. I not so secretly love High School Musical, as I revealed when we did the Top Ten Tuesday - Songs that make me want to punch myself in the face for loving them. Yo. list (here).

Here's my attempt at a picture with me in it:

She's so reserved and quiet, come out of your shell, babe, show us how you really feel:

During the encore/grand finale type thing, MoJo ran down to the front of the auditorium and stood directly in front of the stage. She was leaning against the orchestra pit. She kept waving back at me and had that great look of "holy crap, this is AWESOME" on her face. It totally was awesome.
Here's a (really lame) video of how excited the girls were right at the end of it all:
