Well, another eventful day of winter break! We woke up bright and early (at least for vacation!)...and off we went to the movies! Not sure I have ever been to a 10am showing of any movie...much less one I am not sure I care enough to lose sleep over....but.....the kids wanted to see it...and I wanted to be a part of it. So we all went...minus Loggy who stayed home with Nina Stegs and played hide-n-seek :)
The theater was fairly empty when we got there, but I think it was about 3/4 full when it started. People were cheering at certain parts in the movie. It was funny. Crazy SW nerds! But we had fun. The movie was pretty good for a sci-fi-ish movie. I figured out the "who dies" yesterday during our at-home-marathon. I like to spoil things for myself and I have gotten pretty good at guessing SW outcomes. Should I be proud or ashamed of this? At any rate, we had a good time. Oddly enough no one wanted popcorn (and we had free coupons!)...but they did feast on candy from Sue Sue!
Afterwards we ran errands while Hailey shopped with Nina Stegs. Our last stop was to pick up the coveted old-new violin from the repair shop. Someone was pretty excited!
Doesn't it look beautiful?! I think so. The violin repair guy did a great job....
...and he found this inside when he repaired the crack. Very cool to know a little bit of its history. We think it was repaired by an Otto Martin after a fire. I wish we could make out the name of the fire...and wish it had a year too. But we know it was a well made violin from Germany from the 19th or 20th century. We were so thankful it could be repaired!
One more day of our Hays home. I know it will be a busy NYE as we pack and as she preps for auditions (taking pics with her ballet friends at the studios---she saw them all tonight for dinner). This break has been great...and it was been a blessing having her home so much and having so much down time.

Well, it was a lovely day in the Steg household...everyone was well...and we could finally have our wonderful Christmas celebration with Sue Sue! It surely was a jolly holiday with Auntie Susie! We love her and she always makes celebrations extra special with her thoughtfulness and yummy food prep!
It was a great day....a wonderful day celebrating with our Sue Sue...and lots of fun family time. Feeling blessed!
