November - Tday

*  *  *  *  *  *  * 

Where to begin.....
Thanksgiving was great .. Lots of good food and good company.
Jack was a happy camper because his Pa made 2 ,
count them2 smelly hams -
and Jack will now tell you they are also called smoked hams.

Serena Modeling Tom's Shoes
(she has her slippers on inside of these shoes )

Day after T- day went to The Shedd Aquarium..
Thanks Serena !!
The place was packed - but it was still a good time.
I was exhausted when we got back to the house .

Santa flew in to see the show.
He was in a  red & green row boat

The chair rail tiles at the aquarium
The center dome

When Jack was asked if he could see the orange fish,
he asked
Do you mean the one that looks like a Dorito??
All I could think of was a steamer and lemons
But the legs really are scrawny aren't they?? 

I was a little disappointed in the aquarium.. I think the one in
New Orleans is so much better .
* * * * * *

We had tickets to go see the play "ANN"
a one woman show by Holland Taylor .
Great Seats ( Thanks Rosie and Holland)
The play made us laugh and made us cry
Have I told you how much I miss the city????
 * *
After the show we walked to the Christkindlemarket
in Daley Plaza.
My first view of the Picasso in 28 years almost made me cry.
*     *     *
The people , the smell of the Christmas candies and
fruits being baked .
OMG, I was in heaven.

Picasso at Daley Plaza
So Me, Tom & Jack went to bed and Jack says,
"Hey nobody read me a book".
 I told him we were going to take turns
building a story.
Jack starts out, Once upon a time there was  a little boy
named Jack and then it was Pa's turn , then my turn .One of Jacks
sentences was "There was a Princess named Serena who loved to sing,but
she forgot the  words and would just call out CaCaww.".
Well we lost it ..
Serena comes in because we are laughing so hard. She is standing
in the bedroom doorway asking what is going on and Jack has
his hand shaped like he has a puppet and every time she said something
that hand was moving like a mouth. She did not see it ,,
Me & Tom are roaring as she leaves the room and Jack says
"I have always wanted to do that",
and that set us off AGAIN !!

Then things are settling down and Jack says
"ha ha  I farted"
(This kid could win a Gold Medal in Farting)
So Tom rips a man size one and I had to leave the room
because the fart monsters were loose.

The next morning when Jack got up , he is somewhat snuggling
with Serena and asks her ( with a straight face) if she would like
to hear the Princess Serena song..
She says - I would love to and he turns around and screeches
The kid has great comedic timing !!!
* * * * * * * *
Then it was time to head back to Arkansas.
I can never call AR home .
The lovely storm we went thru coming home from Chicago
