Friday's Big Announcement

Happy Friday!
just popping in for a quick hello
and a little surprise,
one I've been really excited to share with you!

First. It's not another adoption.
(although our agency is sharing SN lists again and we're sooo tempted)

Our big news...drum roll...

Emma is going to be in the musical Aladdin...squeal!!

It's a real musical with costumes, make up and design sets. She auditioned a few weeks ago and then was called back for a second audition and we've been waiting to hear the official casting news. Practice doesn't start until December and performance dates are February 24,25,26 2011. We're so proud. She's so brave.

Way to go, EMMA!!
