Fun in Branson

So.....we survived the Chicken Pot Pie incident and for this, I am extremely thankful.
I can assure you that it will be a very, very long time before this chic orders anything that
resembles a Chicken Pot Pie!

The rest of the day was fun, fun, fun!!  Just happens that there were several Antique Shops along
the way, and we made sure that we stopped at EVERY SINGLE ONE!
My purchases for the day.......Christmas Decorating materials, another Bell for my collection, Spoons....the neatest cupcake spoons!  

We then returned to our hotel....which was fabulous!

                                        Just one of the fabulous views from  "Chateau on the Lake"

Gingerbread Houses on display at the hotel...... Gorgeous!

Another (detailed) Gingerbread House......

After a short rest, it was time to get dressed for our show on the "Showboat Branson Belle"
The walk down all the way down through the park was absolutely beautiful......Christmas lights were everywhere and I could definitely feel magic in the air! We enjoyed a wonderful meal, while being entertained by several great musical artist.  

I felt pretty comfortable, UNTIL.....the MC stated that in some areas of the lake, it was at least 200 feet deep!!!  YIKES, at that point,  the only music I could hear was the music played on the "Titanic."   It was nice to know that there were plenty of life jackets on board!!

After returning to the hotel, we all sat in the lobby and enjoyed what I call "Down to earth, good ol' conversation with friends."  We laughed, laughed and laughed......sometimes at each other!!

As the clock moved towards the midnight hour, it was "Cinderella Time" for this chick.....
My feet could not run fast enough!  I needed  the bed and I needed my beauty sleep!!

The rest of the story comes tomorrow!!

Enjoy this beautiful day.....

Y'all sure know how to have a good time! Glad the chicken pot pie didn't do you both in. Now, what is a cupcake spoon? Inquiring minds needs to know. :)

I'm so glad you didn't get sick!!

What road trip - I would love to go to Branson, and I love antique shops! Can you believe Christmas is just around the corner?! We always have a really nice gingerbread house display at our local museum, I'm looking forward to it after seeing those cute gingerbread houses!

Thanks for sharing - and by the way, you look so pretty in your picture!!

Oh, we love the Chateau on the Lake, such a lovely, lovely hotel. We saw Noah last year at the Sight and Sound and I'd love to see Joseph.
