Girls Night Out

Marty had a meeting at church along with several other men tonight so I suggested to a few of the other ladies we all go watch the final production of the high school play. Most were unable to go due to preparing Halloween costumes, etc. I knew Heather would want to attend to support her friends in the cast and crew. Lisa planned to attend with me but she became sick and stayed home to rest, but she let me take Chandler to see the play. Cheney stayed home with his mama because he'd already seen the play with his class at school. Thanks for loaning Chandler to me for the evening, Lisa! We had a great time!

I picked Chandler up from her Meme's house and we then headed into town to pick Heather up from band practice. While we waited in the car we could hear the band practicing and Chandler sang along with the band. The three of us then went to our favorite local hamburger joint, Kirby's, for dinner. During dinner Heather and I were able to convince Chandler to blow a kiss to my camera phone so we could text the photo to her parents and say that she was blowing them kisses.

After dinner we met my friend Reva (also Chandler's aunt) at the high school to watch the play together. Heather warned me some of the characters might frighten Chandler and she was right...some of them did. Chandler was very attentive throughout the play and was wonderful to have along. I felt bad for her though when some of the scenes scared her.

The play was "Jack and the Magic Beans." Heather's friend Ryan played a troll who ran in and out of scenes throughout the play, mostly chasing and trying to find the chicken the laid the golden egg. The chicken seemed to fascinate Chandler, but the troll definitely scared her.

The character who played the harp sang very beautifully! I was very impressed.

One of the girls Heather danced with several years ago played the queen (center of photo). To the right of her is Miss Priss, the cow Jack traded for magic beans. It's a toss up to me which stole the show...Miss Priss or the Troll.

After the play we made Ryan pose for a picture with us when I know he really wanted to get out of that wig and makeup.

I would hate to have to pick who did the best job on acting, singing, etc, They all did a great job. It was a nice evening out. Thanks, Tammy, for planning it.
