What We Saw On Broadway - Absolutely Wonderful!

While we did thoroughly enjoy seeing Mama Mia on Broadway, I think the whole family would say that Alfred Hitchcock's 39 Steps was the most delightful surprise. At the bottom of this post you can see a fun snippet from the Broadway play.

The show is a comedy with witty references to several of Hitchcock's movies. The cast was a brilliantly talented ensemble of 3 men and 1 woman who all played multiple parts and improvised props hilariously. I am so glad we saw this play. We all four enjoyed it immensely. After the play we stuck around at the stage door to meet the actors. I just happened to have a Sharpie in my purse and Abigail had bought a poster. Each actor came out and visited with us (and one other fan), signed the poster and posed for a picture with Abby. What a treat!

Here are those pictures:

New York is Coming!

Yes, we went to New York City, had a blast, and took many pictures. In fact, the many pictures is what is delaying my post about our trip. But suffice it to say we had a great time and I will blog about it soon. I just want to get my pictures in order first and I have major writing assignments due next Monday. I don't want my editors to look at my blog and see that I've been writing here and yet haven't finished my submissions for them. That wouldn't be too good!

So just check back with me later for my "I Love NY" post! Tell you what, here's an appetizer for you!

This mid-trip on Saturday, October 11, at the DFW airport. More to come later!

Abby Is Royalty!

Guess what! Abby won freshman class royalty for Homecoming. That means she got to ride in the parade and walk on the field during the Homecoming Queen & King Coronation Friday night! Of course this honor warranted a new dress. She looked beautiful and we are so proud of her. She was tickled pink and loved every minute of it, but handled it with grace and humility as well. Check out our little Homecoming Princess!
