Ok so here it is, December 1st, and I'm just getting around to writing about two things. This will be a long post so bear with me. First and foremost my baby girl turned 8 on November 13th. I still can't believe it. Sticking with tradition in my family, her gift this year was to get her ears pierced. So on her actual birthday we went to Claire's and got them pierced.
So on the Friday before her birthday, I took Adria and her BFF Paige to the movies and then out to dinner for pizza. It had been a year since these two had seen each other. It absolutely amazes me how smart these two kids are and it is such a joy to spend time with them. Here they are at dinner...just look at how excited they are.....
On to acting. Adria takes theater classes at Open Stage of Harrisburg. She totally loves it and I love that she loves it. She is destined to outshine us all. Well at the end of her class, the girls put on a play. This play was written by all of them. It was titled "My Thanksgiving Horror". I was quite amused by the title. Adria played Flurkey the turkey. Flurkey's best friend was Crow and together they stole the Thanksgiving turkey from the Pilgrims to teach them a valuable lesson. That lesson is, you kill and eat turkeys...birds get pissed.
Here is the whole class posing. And on the right are Flurkey and Crow. According to her teacher, these two had the best imaginations in the whole class. (Shocking, I know).
So there is our November. It was crazy busy and I'm sure December will be too. I'm going to leave you with some Adria sarcasm. This was a conversation between her dad and her while watching A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving...
Thad: The good thing about these cartoons Adria is that the stuff that happens to them here can actually happen in real life.
Adria (DUH-RIPPING with sarcasm): You mean...like dogs playing ping pong?
Hope everyone's turkey day was awesome and Christmas is even better!
