Mr. Perfect's new birthday tradition

We've started a new tradition for Mr. Perfect's birthday. Last year, I bought him tickets to The Forgotten Carols. It was the first time either of us had seen it. We loved it. It made us laugh. It made us cry. It is seriously better than Cats, and we will be seeing it again and again.

Now, anyone who knows me, knows that combining Mr. Perfect's birthday with Christmas is a HUGE no-no. Don't even think about giving him a birthday gift and telling him "Oh, that's for Christmas as well". That's a sure way to be shunned for a good year or two. But The Forgotten Carols is something he loves and wants. So, we went again this year. And it was really nice, because it was the 20th anniversary for the show. So, we broke down and bought the new CD. We have the original one from 1995 or 1996, but this has a couple new songs and different singers. Some I will always love more from the original, but others I like better on the new one.

The only thing that made us sad was that we went on a night that the Cottonwood High School choir didn't sing, so we didn't get to see All Strings Attached. And she's a senior this year, so she won't be in it next year. *sigh

Anyway, back to birthday stuff. We went on Mr. Perfect's actual birthday this year. I don't know that we'll always be able to do that, but it will be nice to try. Any year it falls on a Sunday is out (they don't perform on Sunday), but other than that, I think we could do it.

And the fun isn't over yet. Tonight, we'll be heading to Most Happy Girl's parental home for dinner, with Drama Queen and Game Boy along for the fun.
