Brandy and I decided to treat our girls to an experience for a Christmas gift to each other instead of a new toy, etc. We all loaded up in her van this past Saturday (Nov. 19th) and headed to Nashville for the day. We had lunch at the Rainforest Cafe at Opry Mills, and the girls loved sitting next to the tigers and seeing the thunderstorm come through the restaurant. Then, we walked over to the Grand Old Opry to see “How the Grinch Stole Christmas” musical (it was a great show- actors, costumes, songs were all wonderful), and afterward, we walked over to see Opryland Hotel’s Christmas decorations (where HG served as our tour guide). Around 5:30, we were all worn slap out, so we got back in the van, changed into pajamas, drove through Chik-fil-A for dinner (and got one of practically everything on the menu), and then hit the road for Memphis. The girls all played so well together, and Brandy and I enjoyed the time to catch up. We had fun getting in the Christmas spirit too!
Daily is quite the little mama.
Ready to see the Grinch!
Afterward, HG walked and danced like the Whos for hours.

Daily was scared of the escalator (heights), but she was brave with HG holding her hand.
