Movie Time and Some Good Ole Southern Cooking

Recently, Mimi and Papaw decided to take all the girls (minus Jules of course) to see Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs. Aren't they brave? It was Jillian's very first movie to ever go to and they said she did great...besides not being able to hold her seat down. I don't remember ever being so light that I couldn't hold my movie seat down...ha! :) Anyway, I think they girls all had a great time getting popcorn and drinks and hanging out with such fun grandparents! Thanks for the treat Mimi and Papaw!


Everyone before the show. I LOVE the Jillian and Macy are holding hands.

4 girls piled into the car!




Then, later that night, Mimi decided to make a good ole southern dinner. Aunt K wanted to learn how to fry chicken...and so did I for that matter. I have never fried anything in my life, can you believe that? So, Mimi gave us Chicken Frying 101 that night. I brought some good mashed potatoes, Aunt K brought our favorite Birthday Dip, and Mimi and Papaw did the rest. We had fried chicken, homemade biscuits, squash, peas, green bean casserole, and homemade blackberry cobbler! It was absolutely delicious!

I remember the days of not being able to hold my seat down.

That supper looks wonderful! I could go for everything that was fixed any day of the week (excect the squash...it's not my favorite).

You have such a beautiful family!

I've been meaning to ask you where you got Jillian's devil costume. I remember seeing pictures of it and it was so adorable. I'm going to dress my one-year as a devil and haven't been having much luck finding a cute costume. If you get a chance, would you mind e-mailing me? My e-mail is whimsical_t@yahoo[dot]com. Thanks!
