A Quick Post

Been busy working around here. I hired Jordan and Morgan to help with the clean out of every cabinet and closet. I always have a need to purge at this time of year. I'm happy to have young help for all the hauling up and down.

I've also had the chance to see several movies this past week. Wild with Reese Whitherspoon was just okay---none of us loved it.

Most of the family saw Exodus last week. I really like those epic type movies. It was really good---we all liked it.

Unbroken---besides being in my top 5 favorite books---was a GREAT movie!! Steph, Nicky, Mindy, and even Butch---went the day after Christmas. Butch hasn't been to the movies in about 5 or 6 years. It's just not his thing. But he like Unbroken too. It followed the book pretty closely. Truly a "must see."

Today was "Movie Monday" so we saw  Into the Woods. Another one we thoroughly enjoyed. Lots of stars. Merrill Streep was fabulous and so was Johnny Depp (he never disappoints)! We like the music too. The costumes and scenery were great. Connie and I liked the movie better than the stage performance. Sometimes they can do so much more with a movie. I felt the same way about Mama Mia---loved it on stage, but loved the movie more! Hmmm---Merrill Streep again---maybe that's why.

I'll be going again on Friday with my friends. We're not sure what we're going to see yet. There are so many good ones out right now. I'll keep you posted...


  1. The girls here are trying to persuade the boys that "Paddington" would be worth going to see this afternoon

  2. I think movies sound like the perfect diversion to decluttering. I've started on the latter, and will put the former on our to-do list as well.

  3. My goodness, clearing every cupboard would take me a year, I would think! Having some helpful pixies sounds great :).

  4. You certainly have been busy. We've missed quite a few movies that we'd planned to see this fall, but might get out this weekend to see the final Hobbit movie.
