Google Doodle to the Rescue
Shopping for Lyn is very difficult. I believe I've mentioned that previously. If I see something that seems like something she'd like, I try to get it right away so I don't miss out on an opportunity.
Nearly a year ago, I saw that Google had posted a Google Doodle celebrating the 120th Anniversary of the Nutcracker Ballet. Lyn loves the ballet. She watches each time she can catch it on TV. I remember we watched it annually growing up as well. She has a CD with the soundtrack. Each year for the past several years, Mom has taken her to a live performance. She could easily watch it daily. When I saw the doodle, I thought of her and how much she loves the ballet. That's when I spotted a link to the Doodle Store.
I bought her a shirt with the doodle on it. She'll never realize that it spells out Google. She will, however, recognize that it represents her favorite ballet.
Mom can show Lyn the above video link and tell her that today's post is about the performance they saw over the weekend. Then, when she unwraps her present on Wednesday, it may help spark that connection for her. I hope she likes the shirt.
By the way, they both enjoyed this year's performance much more than last year's.
