Valentine's Day

Jeremy took me to see Stars on Ice on Valentine's Day. It was truly incredible. I had never seen ice skating live before, and now I am hooked. The performers included Ilia Kulik, Sasha Kohen, Todd Eldridge, Yuka Sato, John Zimmerman, Xue Shen and Hongbo Zhao, Michael Weiss, Jennifer Robinson, Marie-France Dubreuil and Patrice Lauzon, and special guest Evan Lysacek. They skated to classical, heavy metal, swing, soft rock, country and everything in between. My favorite was all the skaters on the ice together basically swing dancing to 40's big band. Todd Eldridge even did some clogging on the ice! The special performance by Evan Lysacek, the reigning World Champion, was incredible. I have never seen anything like it. Sasha Cohen was disappointing, she was the only person to fall, and she did twice, during each of her solo numbers. She was the one I was most looking forward to seeing, and it was disappointing. Everyone else was so amazing!! I highly suggest going. Kirsten loves watching ice skating, and we felt a little bad not taking her. So we bought tickets to take her to Disney on Ice next month.

After the show, we tried to get into a restaurant, but most places had 2 hour waits by 5:30. So instead we came home and took the babysitter home and then took Kirsten out to dinner with us. It was a great Valentine's day.

Kirsten loved getting cards from each of her grandparents and has put them up on the living room bookshelf. She is also still eating candy from all the valentine's she got from school and dance. I am ready for the sugar high to end. We hope that everyone else had a great Valentine's day also!
