My DH & I don't traditionally give big gifts to our kids (ages 6 and under) for birthdays and Christmas, but we love to give the gift of family experiences. Our eldest son has loved the music of Trans-Siberian Orchestra for 2+ years. He watched the concert on DVD once, and memorized all the scenes. Whenever he hears the music, he'll say, "Mom, this is when they do such-n-such in the Trans-Siberian movie". During the holidays, he loves to play the Trans-Siberian CDs at home and in the car.
This year, we suprised him with tickets to see them in concert. Sunday night, my DH & I had so much fun with him at the concert. He was mesmorized by the lights, the music, the performers and everything he saw. We know this is a memory he (and we!) will never forget.
We look forward to special date nights with individual kids in the future!
