What's The Motto With You?

As Shaylauary is soon coming to a close we had a huge celebration last night! We went with Jennifer (Kids Cancer Krusade) and her beautiful mother to dinner and then to see "The Lion King" in Toledo. It was amazing! Of course, when the first number started and all of the animals started parading in, tears just poured out and Shayne sweetly squeezed my hand. I couldn't help but think of the time in January of 2003 when we first moved to NYC and were living in the Ronald McDonald House and were kindly given front row tickets; Christi LOVED it! Weeks later, after Shayla arrived, my friend, Becky, came out and we took Shayla. Shayla says she remembered some of it, but she was only four. Last night she was on the edge of her seat. I loved watching her beautiful expressions, and catching up with our friends. Many of Christi's favorite sayings were from "The Lion King" and I think that's what made it doubly hard. "What's the motto with you?" hee hee! Christi would giggle so often by saying that, usually to her father. I'll post a couple of pics below I've never shared before.

What beautiful photos Angela. Thank you for sharing them. I'm glad Shayla got to see The Lion King, although I'm sure it was difficult at times for you and Shayne. Sending you big hugs from south Florida!

My heart goes out to you, Angela.

I am glad Shayla enjoyed the show and that you were able to have such a good time with friends. Jennifer is simply amazing.
