It all started out wonderfully, except of course for the horrible asthma attack that hit me. (In hindsight, I think the asthma attack was a foreshadow of things to come). We met my parents at the driving half-way point after C-man's acting class performance Friday evening. (He did great and learned so much in his first semester of classes! He has much more to learn, but we were very proud that his confidence has increased.)
After dropping the kids off, we headed straight to the late movie to see 'Catching Fire' from the Hunger Games Triology. FABULOUS movie. Honey & I both enjoyed it and I highly recommend it.
Saturday morning Mama Jane sent me these pictures of the girls having a tea party while C-man was with his cousin at a college football game. Isn't she an awesome grandmother!!

It was a still a wonderful weekend of just leaving the house we got the notion - such a novel concept. There were no shoes to find, no snacks to make, and no complaints. We had needed a day of just us. Of course we were so happy to see them, but immediately after they got into the car three voices asked for snacks, water, and a bathroom stop all at once. Honey turned to me and asked, "Hope, please tell me. Why did we pick them up again?"
We decided Sunday night would be a movie night and here is the precious sight I found after preparing dinner. The girls were snuggled together watching the movie. Ok, maybe they were just sharing popcorn, but it was still a sweet sight.
I hope y'all are having a fabulous Thanksgiving week!
