The next day my best friend texted and said "we have a treasure to bring you" so she shows up at my house with her husband, 3 daughters and niece and performs the cutest, funniest version of phantom of the opera you could ever imagine. This lifted out spirits and was EXACTLY what we needed.
After they left Chris and I went a little crazy and got all dressed up and performed (for the kids) a few phantom songs...karaoke style. The kids did a beautiful set for us, with rose petals scattered and all. The best part was I still fit in my wedding dress...praise the heavens above. That was a beautiful moment.
