I've been AWOL for a bit. Last week Mr. Mid-Atlantic and I were in Atlanta. First on our agenda was to see Macbeth at The Atlanta Shakespeare Tavern. We know "Macbeth" pretty well.....just call me "Mother Macbeth". Mr. Mid-Atlantic and I are pretty proud of him. And playing Macbeth is pretty exciting for Andrew too. One of his prized roles at the Tavern. (I will say it is pretty weird to see your son beheaded!)
Andrew and his real life "Lady Macbeth" -- (Although Megan is MUCH nicer....otherwise we may have been uneasy overnight guests.....just a little Macbeth humor)
The grands looked mighty cute in their Halloween shirts.
We had a great time at the pumpkin patch with them....too bad it was a unexpected stop and I didn't have my camera with me.
Stella and I did some fun Halloween decorating around the house to "surprise" her parents one night. We put some streamers up on her bedroom door....fun to run through and scare your little sister.
We cut out spiders to crawl over the back of the chairs.
More streamers and bats for the light.
All sorts of Halloween fun for the kitchen window.
Stella gave the bats some spooky faces.
Another spider in an unexpected spot....ready to scare someone.
And of course a few ghosts hanging around waiting for the "big haunting day". It was fun to let Stella decorate however her heart desired and she announced, "Nana, this was the bestest activity of all!" Isn't it fun to entertain a five year old with some crepe paper, black card stock, window clings and a little childhood imagination? Such a blessing these sweet times are.
