The Weekend Recap
This guy celebrated a birthday last Saturday! Happy Birthday Jack! The day was spent watching Claire's basketball team win their first game of the season, lunch at Willie's, and a trip to Costco to purchase a nice, big flat screen tv for our gameroom upstairs.
In addition to basketball, Claire is playing in the inaugural season of girl's powderpuff (flag) football, so on Sunday, we watched her team, the Dolphins, beat the Cowgirls! Claire rocks at football! She really enjoys it too. It has been really fun to see her throw, run, and "tackle" on the gridiron.
(insert pic of claire here later.....apparently meg took the memory stick to school without asking....that girl sometimes....most of the time actually....death.of.me.)
And of course, this past Friday was................... TWILIGHT! Did it live up to the hype? I am going to say yes, although I really think it could have been done much better. It was for the most part faithful to the book, though so much was (understandably) left out. Some of the effects were a bit cheesy and the acting was just okay for me. But yeah, there is some chemistry between on screen Edward and Bella. Rob Pattinson.....oh my. Definitely a good pick for Edward. The girls in the theater (that was about 98% of the crowd) SCREAMED when he first came on screen. He's a hottie for sure.
OK, looking forward.....we leave tomorrow for Bandera for Thanksgiving. Jack's mom has arrived there from Arizona. We are celebrating with both sides of the family together which is nice. In the meantime, I have been baking pumpkin bread for the girls to give to their teachers today. This is a long-standing tradition and the breads are wrapped in pretty bows with Thanksgiving tags (if I had my memory stick, i would take pics) to take to school. Also, I don't know what possessed me, but I bought paint for the gameroom yesterday and started the primer coat to get rid of the drab hunter green that is on the walls now. I have one coat of primer on with another to go, then I will paint the walls a fresh, creamy yellow. So, that is what I will be doing today. I hope to sneak in another post before we leave town. ...........tracey
