Christmas Day Adventure

On Christmas day we went to see War Horse...


Hubby, my daughter, my Mom and me...
there were 2 showings we were considering...
1:45 or 3:25....
we decided on the 1:45...
around 1:15 hubby was on the phone...
wishing his brother a Merry Christmas...
I was motioning to wrap up...almost time to go..
I decided to check on the times again...
pulled it up....
the times were 1:25 and 3:45...
well we couldn't make it there in 10 minutes...
we didn't want to wait till 3:45...
so we found it showing at another theater...
 at 2:10...we loaded up...headed to the theater...
the theater was busy....they were selling tickets inside...
hubby got in line for the tickets...
the girls got in line for the goodies....
we finished about the same time...
headed to the theater...hubby had the tickets...
the ticket taker said to the left...
to the left we went...
War horse...woo hoo...
we went in...the movie had started...
we checked our times...
hmm...wonder why they started early....
the movie was great...
but we felt like we were missing something...
somethings weren't adding up....
about an hour into it...it seemed to be coming to the end...
my daughter pulled out her phone...
checked the times...we had the correct time...
she checked the length of the movie...
she asked her Dad...let me see those ticket stubs...
we had gone in to the wrong theater....
the movie was over...
we decided to walk down to
the theater we were suppose to be in....
it was at a part we hadn't seen...
we watched it until we came to the part we had seen before...
Daughter looked up and found the next showing was 3:45...
in the original theater we had been in....it was 3:45...
so off we went back to the original theater...
watched all the previews....
watched the beginning of the movie...
now it all made since....
so to recap....
we watched the end...
then the middle...
then the beginning...
that was our adventorus movie day...
we returned home and played Marlarky...
we found out my Mom is good at Marlarky...
she is very convincing with her tall tales...
It was a good day....a little out of the ordinary...
but fun....
