Why oh, why can’t I keep up with these blog posts.? Oh well, better late than never. On October 31st, I had a day of fun planned for my little family. First we went to the Miller Outdoor Theater ticket booth to pick up 4 tickets to The Adams Family Musical that was showing later that night. Jacob didn’t wanna go so he stayed with cousins. Next we headed to Schlotzkey’s for lunch. They don’t have one near our town so it’s always a treat when we go.
After our gullets were filled, we stopped by the National Museum of Funeral History. It was a really cool place with a ton of stuff to read and look at. It had an assortment of exhibits from dead presidents
to interesting caskets

and a Vlad Dracula exhibit where we could take some pictures with a cape inside of a coffin. I had to do a little tweaking to give it that special touch. You like?
Jayde also got a copy of Marilyn Monroe’s death certificate at the gift shop. She’s planning on framing it. How morbid of her.
We all were very entertained with the whole place. I never thought I’d enjoy a funeral museum so much but it was a great stop and I definitely recommend visiting if your in Houston with an hour or 2 to spare. You can read my review about it on Trip Advisor.
From there Stephen took me to my favorite store, Ikea. Only Jayde & I went in. The boys stayed out in the truck & took a nap. I got some really pretty, shiny turquoise LACK floating shelves and mish-mash of goodies.
Finally, the highlight of the night was at the Miller Outdoor Theater to see The Adams Family Musical.
It was getting cool out and thank goodness we brought our jackets. We got some hot chocolate at the concessions and watched the show. It was an awesome performance. Stephen loves musicals more than any of us but Jayde & Jaidan really enjoyed it too. It had such a great story line & the actors/actresses/ singers were incredible. I got a picture with Morticia.
She was my favorite character, although Gomez was hilarious & the girl that played Wednesday was really good too. This is a grainy picture of the some of the cast that Stephen took with his phone.
I can’t wait to find some more musicals to go to.
