Thanksgiving was fantastic! My Dad came down from San Antonio and we ate (a lot), talked (a lot), saw movies (a lot), and just generally enjoyed ourselves (a lot).
On Friday, we saw Life of Pi at the theater. It was AMAZING! I highly recommend this film. It has everything - adventure, family, spirituality suffering, redemption, courage, joy...the list goes on and on and on. Both my Dad and I were incredibly impressed with this movie. We discussed it for two days after seeing it.
On Saturday, we saw Skyfall, the new James Bond movie. My Dad is a huge Bond fan. I am neutral where Bond is concerned, but I enjoyed this movie. It's long at 2 hours and 23 minutes, but you honestly don't even realize it. The film moves quickly and the story is engaging and entertaining.
Dad was here from Wednesday evening until Sunday. In addition to watching movies in the theater we also watched Charlie Chan movies at home. We both love the old mystery films. Dad also took Peanut outside on her leash several times. She loves going outside and gets mad at me because I won't take her out 150 million times an evening. She was so thrilled to hang out with Dad because he was happy to take her out as often as she wanted to go.
After Dad left on Sunday, I prepared for the week ahead by doing laundry and cleaning up a bit. I enjoyed Thanksgiving with Dad and I look forward to the coming holidays!
