|Here is Jace on the drive there. Grandma K was so sweet and gave him two books to read, and one that was full of writing exercises. He finished the two reading books before we even got to the house!|
|Here they are wearing their booties. You couldn't enter the house without them on.|
|Brock and Tatum with Cathy, the wardrobe/makeup/hair lady.|
|Sitting in the make-up chair.|
|Ooh, so pretty!|
|No make-up for Jace. He's a natural beauty! Cathy is just making sure outfit number one looks perfect.|
|Getting direction from the director.|
|That's the director. He's showing Jace what he wants him to do.|
|This is the monitor. We got to watch it and see what it is going to look like on TV.|
|All the important people making sure they get the shots they need.|
|More guidance from the director.|
The next scene was Jace playing with Brock, and in walks mom with some popcorn. They must have done it about 15 times. It was pretty fun. Jace just thought it was fun to get to play with Daddy. At first, she just walked in without anything, and they thought she needed a reason for coming in to watch them, so they said, "What if she is bringing them popcorn?" Within about a minute they had a bowl of popcorn. Talk about on demand! It was pretty cool.
|Here she is before the popcorn idea.|
|And here she is with the popcorn getting some direction on how to enter.|
As soon as these shoots were over, Jace came up to me and quietly asked "Did they give you the money?" He has been so excited for Cars 2 to come out on video, and we told him that he would be making some money for doing this job, and he could buy it with his own money. He has been counting down the days. He was bummed to find out that he wasn't done for the day yet, and that no, they hadn't given me any money yet. We told him that we'd have money when the day was over, and we could get the movie on the way home.
After the living room scenes there were several with just Tatum, and the boys were on a break for a couple of hours. Luckily, we whipped out the book Grandma K brought for Jace, and he was entertained the whole time.
Then they called us down for lunch. It was delicious! These people know how to do it! We felt pretty big time. Our choices were grilled chicken with some sauce, pork loin with applesauce, or catfish. Then they had all kinds of sides to choose from. Mashed potatoes and gravy, squash, broccoli, and others. There were also several salads and toppings to choose from, rolls, and apple pie with ice cream for dessert! Wow! They took good care of us! We had to eat outside though, and it was pretty chilly. They didn't want us messing up the house before anyone even lived in it.
|I love the background in this shot. This is in front of the house.|
|That's the house they're giving away.|
|Jace proving you're never too full - or too cold - for ice cream!|
|And I make my debut to this post! Me and Jace in front of the house. They are also giving away that black SUV. Brock had to shoot a few scenes in that car on the first day.|
|Nice hair. It was windy.|
|Then Jace started dancing. He was having a pretty good day.|
|It always takes forever to get everything set up just perfectly.|
|In this shoot, he had super muddy shoes that he just takes off and sets to the side.|
|In between every take, they would some over with a water bottle and a bucket to wash off his hands. It was so cold! They probably did this shot about 10 times.|
|Waiting for the crew to get everything just right.|
|The happy couple :)|
|They got him dressed down to his feet, but only showed his face and hands in the shot. I wish we could have kept the clothes!|
|Getting ready for the shoot. I couldn't get a very good picture.|
