Star Wars in Concert

Just wanted to share with you a clip and picture from our trip to "Star Wars in Concert".  This featured clips from all the Star Wars movies with an orchestra playing all of the background music.  I thought this would be a nice treat for Lauren since she is in the school orchestra playing the cello.  Please excuse the quality of the video.  This was made with my little snap and shoot camera.

The Thanksgiving feast was great except for one major problem.  I ruined the turkey.  Yes, ruined!  It was way over cooked (so I thought) and dry.  And when we finished dinner I started cutting up the turkey to find out that the whole bottom portion was still not done.  Ugh!  I told the hubby he can cook the turkey next year.

I hope my blogging buddies will forgive my absence the past week.  With the holiday and deadlines to meet for projects, I just haven't had the time.  I hope to get caught up today.


  1. I know there is so much to do this time of year!

    I always use a cooking bag for my turkeys and they come out perfect and juicy every time! You should try it, very easy.

  2. Hi Leslie
    I think we've all been swamped. I'm just getting back to visiting my favorite blogs! Sorry about your turkey...I agree with Judy's suggestion - Randy always uses those turkey bags and they turn out wonderful.

  3. Yes, We roast our turkeys in the bag and it's always been successful. Just rub the bird with soft butter, salt and pepper and you're good to go!

  4. Yep...I bag it too! I've fallen off the wagon with my blog too...I'm hoping to post either tonight or tomorrow...everything is so hectic this time of year

  5. Thanks for the goodies!!...such a delight to find them in my mailbox!

  6. very cool! my 12 year old would love it. he's an avid star wars fan and he also plays the cello.

  7. Hi Leslie,
    I have an award for you on my blog!:)
    Hugs, Sanda xx
