So did you have a good day yesterday? We really did until Kat decided to do her impression of the Exorcist last night at bedtime, which only serves us right for asking so much of her, but she was an absolute angel until then so it's all good.
We went to the club on Fort Bragg for lunch. They had a beautiful buffet spread. There was very little that Jacob liked (although they had ice cream with oreo crumbles so it was all good), but Ben was in stuffing heaven. We were sitting where we had a good view of a lit water-fountain which Kat was enthralled with. Between it and the candle on the table, she had lots of things to focus on. She was a little more intimidated by all the people. Unlike Jacob as a baby, she is not too sure about strangers. She tends to hang on pretty tight to me at those times and never shares her beautiful smile (no matter how much they encourage her to.)
Here is a photo of the kids before we went to lunch:
After lunch, we came back to the house to give Kat a chance to nap and Ben went to the dining hall to serve Thanksgiving lunch to some of his troops. I took the chance to go out and take some more photos of the fall foliage...
We finished off the afternoon with our traditional trip to the movies. While the guys really wanted to go see Beowulf, I convinced them that Enchanted was a more appropriate family movie. And I was right...the movie was great. The actress in it is absolutely fabulous!! It was all the movie that I hoped it would be and the guys enjoyed it too. There was enough animation and singing at the beginning that it enthralled Kat too. She took a quick nap in the middle of it and was an absolute angel through the parts where she was awake although she wasn't too sure what was going on (she kept looking at me for reassurance.) Overall, it was a great day!
And because I need to share some art...here is a card that I have made for my niece Emily. While it is going to go with her Christmas present, I managed to skip the whole Christmas theme. LOL! I really wanted to use these darling Kim Hughes stamps and this is what transpired. Sometimes, you just have to follow your creative muse and trust what she is doing...
stamps...Kim Hughes Collection and Inque Boutique
papers...SEI and Rhonna Farrer
