“I bet no other kids have such a cool advent calendar with such awesome stuff!”
Clearly our little second hand gifties are a big hit with the girl. 😀
Today she opened up a bag that contained a tiny little plastic counter top and register along with a couple little plastic pieces of fruit… now her My Little Ponies can go shopping, and Apple Jack is excited to be able to offer them all wonderful baked goods and other home made items.
And here’s a video she asked me to take: https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?v=10151141999072353
This was such an overwhelming experience in so many ways. If you have a loved one who’s all about Friendship is Magic you have got to find a way to get to one of these live performances. Lily-Ann was so gleefully happy it was just awesome. And seeing her that ecstatic filled me with a ridiculously alarming amount of joy. LOL Like, almost tearfully so.

Only three of the “mane six” made it out to Saskatoon for the shows, but it was still super cool. Okay, I’ll admit, it would have been at least 20% cooler if Pinkie Pie had been here too – after all, it was a little weird having the other ponies do her songs (and changing lyrics from “Pinkie” to “filly”). But we were still super stoked when they did the girl’s and my very favourite song from season one. 😀 And yes, if you watch the video, that voice you hear singing along through most of it is the girl. We know all the words. 😉
All in all? An amazing, unforgettable experience. So worth the hour of sitting on the hard mall floor prior to it starting to ensure we were right at the front. My body was crying, but so was my heart – and my heart was much much louder.
