Thanksgiving Brunch at Grand America
Movie Time - "Tangled"
Friday, November 26, 2010
The most eagerly anticipated movie of 2o10 -
Harry Potter 7
The Deathly Hallows
We bought our tickets a month before it's release and we only able to get seats for the 12.45am showing, but it was well worth it!
Ian and Maggie both entered our school's Barnes and Noble art/essay contest this year. The theme was "I Am Thankful For...". They both won 1st place in their grade and received a $5 gift card to the bookstore. Maggie, of course, spent hers immediately on a Barbie coloring book, but Ian wanted to save his.

Ian and his winning artwork
Ian was one of three winners of the Roberts Craft Store Holiday Window Art Contest at the Clinton location.
Due to the cold temperatures that hit earlier in the week, instead of painting his winning artwork directly onto the store front windows, Roberts provided him with a piece of mat board to paint his art on.
He had to complete it before Thanksgiving, so we stopped in the day before and spent about three hours working on it. Ian had to transpose his original concept onto the large mat board and paint with tempera. Once it dried, he outlined his images with Sharpie.
We haven't actually seen it up in the window yet, but hopefully we can make it out there soon.
