Movie Day

Since the late 80's, while we were stationed at Ft. Rucker, Alabama, the day after Thanksgiving became Movie Day for our family. I hate shopping and I especially hate doing it with crowds. In fact, most of my shopping this year has been done on line (so must less stress that way).

But I digress.

I almost thought our tradition was over. I mean, the kids are older now. They both live on their own. When our daughter said she had to work, we moved the time of the movie to later. That meant our son might not be able to attend. As it turned out, he was able to attend, but it got me to thinking. Will this be the last Movie Day for our family?

I sure hope not. I'd like to think if they were involved with someone, they would invite them along. Family traditions include all family (even friends have been known to join us). I hope as long as they live in the area, Movie Day will continue on.

Oh, and the movie we saw this year? Love and Other Drugs. Yes, our tastes have morphed into the R rated movies. We've come a long way from Ghost Dad!

How was the movie? I took the kids the day before Thanksgiving to see Tangled. They thought it was adorable. We are still in the lighter ratings. :)

Hey Kimber! I didn't realize you followed my blog until just today (since I never saw your "eye" on my list!). I reciprocated today!

As for the movie: I liked the movie, my daughter will see it again, my husband said it was okay, and my son said he liked it.

It does make you laugh out loud and it will make you cry. I can see owning the movie when it comes out on DVD. It's what I call a "keeper"! Hey - and Jake Gyllenthal (or however you spell his name) isn't bad to look at, either!

Stacy - Kimber's just getting into the whole blogging thing. Just set up her own.

Re. family traditions - we've been hosting a Christmas Eve gathering since our boys were tiny. We started mostly with families like ourselves who didn't have other family close enough to visit, but some of those families are still coming and their now grown kids are bringing their children with them. It's great!
