My little sister Jennie came to visit us for Christmas. It's been great having her here. Right now she is organizing my tiny kitchen. That's true sisterly love, isn't it? She is also bunking with my six year old Lily every night. That goes beyond sisterly love. In fact, it probably qualifies her for some sort of world peace award. I'm checking into it.

Jennie and I took Lily to see Mary Poppins on Broadway yesterday. It was actually the first Broadway show for all of us. And it did not disappoint. It was amazing. If you are ever in the city, you definitely need to get tickets.

We took a little picture of the 3 of us before we left.

I have no idea where Lily learned to pose like that.

Another picture of Lily and my sister Jennie. As you can see, Jennie is hanging on to Lily to keep her from darting into traffic. Thank you Jennie.

It was unbelievable. The set, the cast, the theater...All of it was glorious. My only complaint might be that the theater didn't let us know that it was intermission. We thought the show was over. Yes, we are Broadway virgins. The lights went up and we grabbed our coats, while casually discussing how great the show was. As we walked to the door, we noticed no one else was leaving. Instead, people were buying 4 dollar bottles of water and Mary Poppins mementos. So we casually walked back to our seats pretending that we meant to get our coats on because we were cold. Or maybe I just did that.

The second half was even better than the first, so if you go to the show make sure you don't leave at intermission. I'm just trying to help you out in case you are Broadway virgins. Or are blonde. Unfortunately, my sister and I were both, so we really didn't have a chance.

Too funny about the intermission. Sounds like something I would do.
We saw the Lion King when we went to NYC on our honeymoon. It was incredible too. I loved the music!
I'm glad you had a good time!

I saw Mary Poppins a couple years ago & it was hands down the BEST show I've ever seen. I still think about it, sometimes.

Too funny, that you all got up to leave during intermission. :)

So glad you girls went to see MP! We saw it in London 4 years back and it was just as Leah above show I've ever seen live! Em sat prim and proper the whole time and clapped after each act. She still sips cocoa out of her Mary Poppins mug her Nana Kaija got her from the's coming to Denver in March and Kaija's coming back for a repeat.

So fun! I cannot wait to take Kate to her 1st Broadway show. We took our boys to NYC to see Lion King a few years ago and we all loved it. It was this week too so we got to see all of the decorations as well. I love the photo of the 3 of you.

I LOVE that show! And I've seen it multiple times and it just keeps getting better! The dancing on the ceiling was so fun. And the flying, of course.
