Wives and Daughters

All the boys in my life went camping, so Sarah and I decided to have a girl movie night and watch Elizabeth Gaskell's "Wives and Daughters". After realizing that a few more husbands were busy we decided to invite a few friends. The evening was wonderful. We watched all 5 hours and even the youngest girls were engaged in the plot. Everyone brought snacks and we would take potty/snack breaks periodically. The party broke up shortly before midnight, and plans are being made for the next movie night.... there are 2 more Glaskell novels that have been turned into mini-series!!(Above) The girls gather in the living room (Below) Tango, the mini-schnauzer we are puppy-sitting, was king of the castle with so many dog-loving young ladies in the house.The teens are very mad at Roger! What a fool he is! (Above) snacking during a break between discs (Below) calling to check-in since it was getting pretty late and we still had one episode left!
