We took GMAC and Grace to see a theatrical play version of the widely popular Children's book, "If You Give A Mouse A Cookie" – written by Laura Joffe Numeroff and illustrated by Felicia Bond. The book has been adapted to an onstage performance from a handful of characters and props. Mostly between the boy and the mouse. We attended an early morning showing at the ZACH Scott Theatre on a rainy day. We arrived early, the kids were on there best behavior awaiting to be seated. The show was announced and we found our seats. There was not a bad seat in the house, as it was in the round. GMAC and Grace did great, they sat through the entire 1 hour performance without wishing to leave, potty, or any other distractions. Grace didn't know what to think for about the first 20 or so minutes as she looked as if she could just cry at any moment, but then she started to laugh outloud saying "That mouse is funny!" The boy even sat down on the steps next to us and said a line directly to Grace, which made her very happy. At the end of the performance, both GMAC and Grace were the first kids to go up to the boy and mouse actors for hugs and photos!
On Sunday, after missing church due to not setting our clocks after daylight savings the night before we all went out to Comerosa for an early dinner, prepared by EE. Ham, mashed potatoes, salad, and rolls, It was wonderful, like Thanksgiving in March!
