Doing things ever so slightly different this year and decided to take the bigs on some special Christmas dates-Charlie got to go first. We talked a bit about what a date was, how a gentleman open doors, and might hold a girls hand...he replied with "And if it is your Mama, you might give her a kiss!"
I had planned on going to a sweet little cupcake shop, but I forget, he is definitely a decendant of the Watson line and insisted on ice cream. Hey it was 14 degrees...why not? He opened the door for me, held my hand to keep it warm and really was a perfect gentleman. We did have to hide from the snow monster that doesn't like it when people go on dates, but we made it to the concert. And what an wonderful concert it was. Beautiful music, and unbelievable live painting and really awesome soloists. I believe Charlie's only complaint was no Away in a Manger which is his all time favorite carol at the moment. In fact on the way over we sang carols-only from the Bible Mama! What a wonderful sweet night, and a great date :)
