Happy Thanksgiving!!! I'm still cooking, but I thought I would pop in and let you know about the movies we've seen in the last couple of days. Melissa, you should definitely go to see it!!!
We went to see This Christmas yesterday and it is wonderful. It's rated pg 13 so it hints at a few things but doesn't show them. There are a couple of scenes where there is violence, but it isn't graphic. I didn't take my boys (9 and 12), because we had a "Girls Day", but my sister took her 11 year old. It's a very touching story about a family and all their secrets and problems. I loved it and would go to see it again if I had the money or the time. You have to go and see this one!
Another movie to rent or purchase is Hairspray. My kids saw it this summer and loved it, so I purchased it for them on Tuesday. I never saw the original movie and had no clue about it's content. I was pleasantly surprised at the theme and the music. It's set in the '60s so the Motown Sound is prevalent. It's theme is about civil rights and segregation-- I was surprised about that. It was done in such a way that it didn't feel hurtful or serious, but the message was
definitely there. The musical performances were phenomenal!!! I'll have to watch that again when I can sit down and be still. I watched it in the van the other night when we were going to the airport.
I went to bed at 8:30 last night. I was evidently exhausted. I usually do quite a bit of my cooking on Wednesday night and since I didn't I must get back to cooking. I have a blessed day with your family and friends. I'll be back later tonight or tomorrow....
