We have many pictures and a little bit of video but the memories for me will last a lifetime. Seeing the excitement and pure joy you both exuded was simply beautiful and worth every penny. Ok ok, it was free. But really this type of experience was truly priceless. I totally understand why Kevin Clash keeps up with taking care of Elmo. How nourished one can be by interacting with a never ending stream of kids who demonstrate what true elation is. Thank you Mr. Clash and Elmo for bringing so much love & inspiration to my girls and to the world.
In a 2011 interview with NPR Kevin Clash described Elmo as, "a 3-1/2-year-old with a lot of energy [who] loves hugs and kisses, and loves to laugh."
Gee! I don't know ANYONE like THAT.... ok I might know someone....
And I have to thank Daddy for taking such awesome photos and videos. Elmo caused quite a frenzy and when it was our turn to meet him Daddy plowed through an entire crowd of people exclaiming "that one's mine!" So he could get to the front and catch those most precious moments. He would do almost anything for you Nora, including plowing through children and the elderly.
