9:30 PM Today has been another very full day. This morning Sophie and Elisabeth went to a friend's grandparents' house while Susan and I and several church members assembled and distributed Thanksgiving food baskets to some folks in the community. We finished around lunchtime and Elisabeth and I went to Raleigh to see Riverdance (we got her tickets for her birthday). We had a great time. Afterwards, we met Susan and Sophie in Dunn for dinner and a quick trip to Wal-Mart. Elisabeth has been saving up her allowance to buy Madagascar, so we let her buy the DVD and we just got finished watching it a while ago. Needless to say, I for one am quite tired! It's nice to have a packed Saturday, although this makes two-in-a-row for us.
Both girls have been exceptionally cute today. Elisabeth remembered going to Raleigh to see Swan Lake this spring and insisted that since she got a cookie last time, she should get a cookie this time as well. I think I used to have a memory that good, but I'm not sure! Tonight, as the credits for Madagascar were playing, Sophie got up and just danced and shimmied all around the living room. It was a Kodak moment if ever there was one. Susan said it made her wish we had a video camera.
