For our Toohig-Mattice girls’ holiday date this year, we met for a pizza dinner at Three Guys and then went to see Beauty & the Beast at DeSoto Family Theatre. We were blown away with the performance because they had a ton of Broadway people on their team for the show- the costumes and acting talent were wonderful! Almost as soon as the show started and the beast appeared, HG started freaking out. He was quite realistic looking, and she kept saying, “I wanna go home! I wanna go home!” I finally calmed her down by reminding her that he was just an actor in a costume, but whew, I thought our night was going to be short-lived! Once she calmed down, she really enjoyed it and was enthralled. The actors were in the lobby afterward, and while she did not want to stop and meet any of them, she was really excited when we passed Gaston and Belle’s father. Another fun and magical girls’ night with our little princesses!
