A few weeks ago, we moved our family TV out to the screened in porch so we could all watch Stranger Things together. Mary has been spending most of her days out on the screened in porch, watching the birds and the clouds and soaking in some fresh air – and hasn’t had any interest in watching TV. But we convinced her to let us move the TV out to the porch, just so we could all watch the most recent episodes of Stranger Things together. After that night, we haven’t watched anything else on that TV. Until tonight…
Kate saw an ad for the 25th Anniversary Reunion Special of Rodgers and Hammerstein’s Cinderella with Brandi, Whitney Houston, and a star-studded cast – which is one of our all-time favorite musicals and movies. So we set the porch all up and hit record, so we could record it while we were watching it – in case we wanted to watch it again. We watched the hour-long reunion with Mary and sang along to the different songs (“10 minutes ago” and “In my own little corner” are two of our family favorites) and then to our surprise (and joy!) they aired the full feature right after the special – so it was three hours of pure joy as we sang along to this whimsical and magical musical that we all love so dearly.
If you want to watch the hour-long Reunion special, you can watch it here.
