A Brazzle Dazzle Day

You can see our resident bounty hunter above, interrupting Daddy's message as he preached.  He found the bounty alright.  It was a roll of Bounty paper towels!  The guy wouldn't leave without his reward though - so Daddy had to give him some tokens to the Pak Shack, our little candy shop next door.

It was a good day today, one where we official brought Obi Juan into the mix.  There he is above, a guy who drives a spaceship that sells tacos.  It's like a taco truck, but it's a space ship!  His droid H2-D2 helps out, and if that is familiar here, it's because that's the droid that Madison made during Star Wars Days last year.

Anyway, it was a good day, capped off with Daddy's message about a bounty that's on all our heads.  A death sentence is not an easy thing to live with.  Fortunately, there's someone who paid the price.  

We got home pretty tired, as today was a big day at service.  Things are about to pick up though, as next week we have auditions for the upcoming Christmas play.  I don't think Madison will be able to be in the Christmas play as wouldn't you know it?  Our church event is the same time as "The Nutcracker" this year, and Madison has a part in that.  And yes, practice for that starts this Saturday - we're really approaching crunch time!

Madison finished up her piano today, and despite our attempts to 'do something' with the rest of the day, I'm afraid that something was just us staying at home, resting.  We did some video games, and we also watched a movie that Mommy was wanting to watch, the original "Pete's Dragon."  We've been singing the songs from this movie all week.  The reason for this is that Daddy found a record of the soundtrack at Goodwill some time ago, and this week we were listening to it from time to time.  Madison remembers "Candle on the Water" from a spring recital some other dancers were performing to, while Mommy and Daddy were singing "Brazzle Dazzle Day," along with the Dr. Terminus and Hoagy songs.  It's such a fun old movie - I think the reason we were wanting to watch it was that it was filmed on the same backlot as "The Apple Dumpling Gang," which we just watched.  It's amazing how you can quickly change parts of an old Western town to a seaside town in Maine.  And again, each time watching this one, I'm taken back in my memory to Radio City Music Hall, where I first saw the film.  

It was a big morning, as all KidPak mornings tend to be.  After that, we all got the rest we needed, playing games, doing a few chores, and finally sitting with some popcorn before bedtime.  It was a nice day... no, it was a brazzle dazzle day!
