Beauty and the Beast

This weekend we went to see Beauty and the Beast at the Barter Theatre in Abingdon, Virginia. It was a wonderful!!! The production was trully amazing. Graeme literally crawled up my body as soon as the Beast appeared on stage. He watched the entire play. We never really know what he is thinking. We arrived home really late on Saturday night. Sunday morning Graeme awoke as the Beast...crawling on all fours through the house, growling and oh yes, eating as the beast at breakfast! I was amazed at how much of the play he acted out for Wes! We had to request that the Beast stay home when we went to church.
We went with a large group of friends!
Moms and kids for a wonderful play.

Aren't they all so cute!!

Graeme was a little freaked by the Beast but he recovered rather quickly!

Lily loved running!

His adventurous spirit.
Now for the Lily story of the weekend. All day Sunday, we had her baby with us who had been renamed that morning to guess got it, Belle. So Belle went to church with us, napped when Lily napped and almost went to the movie but Lily thought she might get to scared. We had to read to Belle and tuck her in and at one point, she had a fever and needed medicine. When it came time for bed, my Lily (aka the master of procrastination at bedtime) was taking her slow, sweet time to get dressed for bed. I had the bright idea and said, "Lily, I hear Belle crying. She wants her Mama to come and sleep with her. She really needs you to hurry." Lily responded with a very exasperated tone, "Mom, you know she is just a toy!"

Such cute stories!! Your children are beautiful! I really enjoyed looking thru all the photos, especially Lily's baby photos. I'm living the LOA wait right now. I remember when you were living it. Not fun!
