I've watched three bad movies in the last few days, eaten more popcorn than should be allowed by law, and went to our town's version of In-N-Out Burger and got two orders of wild fries (loaded with fried onions and mustard sauce).
It's been a tough week.
The only highlight so far has been seeing my gorgeous little nieces, their easily-embarrassed teenage brother, and my beautiful sister-in-law Jenny all star in the local stage presentation of Pride and Prejudice. Jenny's brother has posted some photos of the stars of the show as well as several sets of rehearsal photos if you want to see everyone in action.
We had a great time watching the show and we cheered extra loud whenever any of our relatives or (relatives of relatives) were on stage. My only wish was that we could have seen more of them. I'm just prejudiced enough to believe that they are some of the best talent on stage. (Some people just oooooze with it.)
brother played a dashing Wickham (They are some of those talent-oozing people). I can't wait to see more of both of them in future shows.
And of course, some of my favorite people to watch were the nieces and nephews whenever they were on stage. Paige is so full of energy that she bursts on to stage and bubbles over with excitement the whole time. Abby seems utterly enamored with the entire playmaking process and might just have a future on the stage. And Maxwell, in true teen fashion, is thrilled to be there but does his best to appear nonchalant and unaffected.
It was a great evening under the stars.
