Christmastime Family Time

Sunday afternoon we went to the Fox with Grandma and Grandpa, Aunt Linda and Uncle Mark. Grandma and Grandpa live in Indiana, and this was the first time Grandma had been in the Fox since 1952!

She was really excited to see it again. We got there early so we could look around some. We went up to the 4th floor to see the Peacock Walk, which has pictures of various shows through the years; plus you can look out through the gridwork to the scene below:

There was also a big display that was a homage to Stan Kann. When Grandma was little she would go to see movies at the Fox, and her favorite part was when Stan Kann played the organ. She would wait until between shows so she could move to a seat closer to the front and better see him play; she wanted to play the organ at the Fox one day.

Eventually we all settled into our seats

to see the show.

Great show, by the way.

Then back to our house for supper, and to open gifts.

Lots of gifts.

Something for everyone, as a matter of fact. Including a really lovely box.

Such a fun, exciting day that we're considering skipping the actual day of Christmas, because, really, how could we possibly top this?
