Hey my friends!
It's Thanksgiving week around here and things are in full swing for food, family and fun on Thursday! My family is coming here for brunch Thursday morning and then off to the in-law's for dinner. I cannot wait!
Well, I can wait for the HUGE mess I still have in my dining/craft room. I have until Thursday to get the world's largest mess cleaned up in there so we can use it for our Thanksgiving brunch! Marty helped me clean out some things today, so the rest will have to be done on Wednesday. Hopefully we will get everything ready without too much stress!
Anyway, today's post isn't about Thanksgiving, it's about Chelsea. Chelsea is obsessed with three things in her life: General Hospital, Scotty McCreery, and Taylor Lautner. She gets to watch General Hospital M-F, 52 weeks a year. She got to see Scotty in concert over the summer and will be seeing him again in December (shhhhhh, it's a surprise). So, that leaves Taylor Lautner. It just so happens that Mr. Lautner was going to be in an itty-bitty movie starting this weekend and she just had to go see it,
Along with 10,000 other people.
Not only did she get to see the new movie, she got to see ALL the Twilight movies...
one right after another!
So, at 10:00 am Thursday morning, we got to the theater and stood in line with some fabulous folks!
We got in our seats around 11:30, and settled in for a LONG day of Twilight.
You think we had enough snacks?
The best things about the marathons that our wonderful theaters have, they let you come and go as you please, offer free refills all day on drinks and popcorn, have discounted nachos and hot dogs, and allow you to bring food in from other places. They really do make it super fun and easy for everyone.
We sat through the first 4 movies, and at 10:00 pm, (12 hours after getting to the theater), the main event!
We loved the movie, even though "the scene" completely freaked Chelsea out (and she even had bad dreams about it that night). The crowd yelled, and clapped, and cried. It was a very appropriate and wonderful ending to a phenomenal series!
We got home around 12:30 am, and were so keyed up, we couldn't go to sleep....of course, that could have something to do with the 1,000 pieces of candy we may have eaten over the course of the day.
A movie marathon isn't something that I would normally do, but I will do anything to put a smile on my baby girl's face!
