We had one of those spur-of-the-moment 'field trips' yesterday. Took the kiddos to the dollar theater to see Harry Potter & the Deathly Hallows. The kids had already seen it when it first came to the theaters, but have been wanting to see it once more on the big screen when it came to the dollar theater. And I hadn't seen it, so we were all pretty excited to go yesterday.

Like I said, this was so spur-of-the-moment that Ella couldn't find anyone to sit with Jesse & Taylor, but she did drop Cori off so she could go see it with Alli. Of course while we were out & about I had to run a few errands too.......ran by Sams since we were in town & picked up another milk & got Chris some the admission's office at Liberty AGAIN to drop off some papers for Ashley's application file.......dropped by Chris' dorm to give him the poptarts & of course, there was a stop at Starbucks in there too....thanks to Aunt Vada & her empty Starbucks coffee packages that she sent.....each kiddo was able to get a FREE coffee. Pretty sweet!! ;-) Didn't get home til supper time....around 6pm, I think. Thank goodness I had put a pot of chili on BEFORE we left, so all we had to do was heat that up. Really yummy on a cold evening!

Check it out........Ashley's new laptop! Can you tell we are preparing for college?! Clay had found a really good deal on a HP laptop that had been a display model, but after getting home & playing with it, he realized the 'I' key was a little wonky.....not really bad, but after use, you know it would just get worse. So, he packed it all in & took it back yesterday & came home instead with this Toshiba. Pretty sweet. She's over here now as I type playing around with it........if you can call taking practice SAT tests 'playing around.' LOL!

I want to see that Harry movie. My only problem is that I have fallen asleep during EVERY one of them so far! I'm talking about seriously scary moments; like when the multi-headed black dog was attacking. I closed my eyes to avoid seeing any blood or anyone getting killed and the next thing I knew, the movie was over!
