    Last year's show was delightful. Our Kulik's Krew group is definitely going back for the 2014 version. Penn State's new Pegula Arena is a lovely place to see a show.

    My gosh, little Liza is not so little anymore! The first time I saw her skate I said she seemed to take after her father more than her mother, and it seems that's true of more than skating!

    Little Ayrton is positively adorable!

    Thanks for the article link! The live show was awesome. Hope no one will get chacked from the broadcast!

    We just got back from the Penn State area. Give me time to collect my thoughts on the show. We were lucky enough to attend the pre-show warm-up, followed by a Q&A with Kurt & Gabe. Gabe was hilarious in his responses & reactions to his dad.

    Program highlights for us - Todd & family doing "The Waiters' Gallop" In SOI, Kurt was the Maitre D, Kyoko & John were the diners. In the Family show - Todd was the waiter, his stepson Ryder was the Maitre D, his wife Sabrina & son Ayrton were the diners. Kurt and sons were terrific in their repsective programs - "Brickhouse" with Dillon & "We are Family" with Gabe. I loved Paul Wylie & family's program, starting with some "Frozen" music, and later with tye-dye shirts and "Happy." Elizaveta, Katia, & Ilia are fabulous.

    Link below to a pic of Katia, Liza and Ilia at the reception and more comments on the Krew FB page. Liza is gorgeous, off the ice and on (Intermediate Ladies in terms of USFSA competition) - time sure does fly. Their family program was beautiful.

    Kurt and Dillon in Brickhouse were fantastic! All the kids were adorable and absolutely huggable. All the parents skated beautifully. And the Kerr siblings (also family) skated with such joy - it was great. They replaced Rocky/Isabel/Gabriela who were much missed but sidelined by an injury, Rocky's - feel better.

    You can see it all for yourself on both Nov. 23 and Dec. 7 on your ABC channel.


    PS Very nice review (linked above) but I don't know what show she was at - Michael didn't do a Tornado but did do a nice, clean back flip (right in front of me so I know what it was) and the Kristi-Nancy roommate thing was simply mentioned, hardly a highlight in an evening of many real highlights. BTW, Nancy looked positively marvelous and her very handsome eldest son Matthew is long, lean, well-spoken and the nicest guy (we chatted at the reception - lovely young man).

    ^ Of course Ayrton didn't skate (he was sitting in a high chair during "The Waiters" Gallop), but he's SO cute! I loved the moment when Sofia had Olaf in her hands, too.

    Me too. I watch to see the skaters with their families, not necessarily for the skating. The skating itself is still cheesy, but because their families are involved, the cheesiness is overshadowed by the kids. And I don't even like kids in general.
