The magic of Cirque du Soleil

We had such a magical evening! The performance was amazing! Sights and sounds titillated the imaginations of us all!






We saw Alegria!  The kids were amazed at the acrobatic feats and the costuming.  The fact that they design every last bit is awesome.  The costumes, the music and all the stage settings and lights.  They have a live band which is fabulous.  As you can see I am running out of adverbs!!

I ordered the CD so that Georgie and I will have the music to listen too!  She will love it.  I think I will also order her a tee shirt to surprise her for her 15th birthday!!

Well just wanted to let you all know that we had a great time.  We went to Olive Garden to finish the evening off.  I had a Chocolate Martini!!  Yummy!!

Have a magical and blessed day!

How fabulous!!! I have ALWAYS wanted to get to a Cirque de Soleil ...haven't caught one yet...am probably the only person in the world who hasn't...sigh...Love the music!!! Guess you might say I'm a tad bit envious ;-)) You deserve to have such a terrific time, though...and so I'm thrilled for you! Have a wonderful week!!! Love, Janine XO

No Janine, you're not the only one!

The show sounds fabulous! My son's marching band played the music from a Cirque show a couple of years ago for their marching season, and I designed the shirts. I never even knew what it was all about til then. Now I definitely want to go!

Thank you so much Sueann for all your beautiful prayers. I know I couldn't have got this far without
all of them. Feel like I have been battling and you have all broken down the evil force that was keeping me from getting the proper help and seeing what needed doing. Truly grateful!
Soon be over.
Loads of love!

Lucky you! :) We signed up to take the girls to Ringling Brothers, but I doubt it will be as breathtaking as Alegria! :)
Glad you had a good time!

I have seen the shows on TV, but it is nothing like seeing it LIVE!! Of course, it has been many years since I saw them live, but the magic never leaves you.
and I have all their cds - love the music.

We were going to see Viva Elvis last week but our plans got changed :( I was so disappointed. Oh well there is always another time right?
