Because I worked 8 million hours before Christmas and because we just needed some down family time, we spent a good portion of the last week of Christmas break watching movies. We watched and watched and re-watched. It was so nice for it to be cold outside, warm inside and all my kids here watching together.
Here is run down of what we watched -
Pitch perfect. Aca-Hilarious. We watched it at least 6 times. And we all went back to school singing the songs. Aca-fabulous!
Catfish. Wow - my friend Sarah told me about the movie a long time ago. Good stuff. Good to watch with teens. Kinda grossed out by the amount of hair Nev had on his chest - but that's just me.
Moonrise Kingdom. Jeff and I saw this in the movie theatre for his birthday. I though it was a bit weird. We watched it 3 times during the break. I think it is the kinda of movie that grows on me, like Napoleon Dynamite.
Big Miracle. Whales being saved. Feel good. Tears. And surprisingly, I do kinda actually remember something about this happening in real life.
Hear Comes The Boom. I LOVED THIS MOVIE. Say what you will about Kevin James, I understand that he will always be Paul Blart Mall Cop to some. But I LOVED this movie.
Couples Retreat. Waste of my time. And I was tricked by 14 year old girl. I could have been watching Pitch Perfect again and perfecting my line memorization.
Family Stone. My all time favorite. Ever.
The Odd Life of Timothy Green. Another feel good movie that I loved. Jeff not so much. I guess there weren't enough people shooting each other or aliens invading the planet earth. Whatevs.
War Horse. The younger set really liked this movie. I thought it was okay. I guess I was just in a mood to see bright shiny happy movies and this was a little too dark, rainy and muddy. Although it guess it did make us all feel good.
Oh, and I just remember that Jeff and the big kids saw The Hobbit on Christmas Day. (me and the little guy stayed home)
And I saw The Guilt Trip with my girlfriends. The movie was good but I was so dang bummed out because I wanted popcorn and the popcorn machine was broken. :(

I went to church today.
I woke up, bolted up, and went.
I don't know what I am looking for.
But I do know there is comfort in that place.
There are so many people we love with so so many struggles right now.
In the last 6 days we have had a dear friend lose a family supporting job, a friend lose a dear pet, 2 separate friends have parents with very serious health problems, a friend with a husband in the hospital, and so so so many of our people having to deal with cancer.
I hate cancer.
I don't know what 2013 holds for me or my family.
But I do know that I have this need to find comfort.
To live honestly.
To be the best person I can possibly be.
And for some reason, I feel called to walk through the doors of the church.
Searching for answers.
Singing a familiar song.
Sitting in the quiet reverent place with people around me that I do not know, but who are just like me - and human.
