My Dreams Come To Life On Stage

Previously.

I’ve started dreaming again. Oh how fun it is! I can never really describe how amazing my dreams are. Until I saw the ISO Yuletide Celebration. Holy shit. This is how I dream come to life.

I have to credit my Mom with this event. She’s been in the past and said get tickets. Sure. Any time I can spend with my parents, I don’t ask questions. I made a large assumption that I was just going to see the symphony for 2 hours play Christmas music. Piep loves to sing, so I figured it’d be a good day for all. Until the night before, I get an email from the ISO that there will be a live reindeer out front before the show. Animals?! Yes please!

So I’m thinking that was fun, never touched a reindeer before. As I walk into the lobby. Ummmm Yuletide mascot? Not sure, but I need a picture.

I’m feeling great! Animals, mascots, let’s go hear the symphony. Then I walk into the theatre concourse, and WOAH. I see a sea of holiday mascots. I could hardly contain myself. “Pieper, take my phone! Let’s go!” She’s such a trooper. Reindeer!

I thought we were done until Mom and I found Olaf! And a kid who’s face says “Why is this adult taking a selfie?”

Best part, my teammates get in on the action without prompting from me. Fun-lovers!

If you have never been to the ISO Yuletide, please please go. I never in my wildest dreams thought anyone out there had combined my love for theater, mascots, animation, fun, family, hope, goodness, music and sheer happiness into a show. THIS IS ABSOLUTELY AMAZING. And you get treated to Josh Kaufman as the emcee. Yes, the voice winner!
