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.  :(

What? How do you open the movie theater with no popcorn?!
I saw Pitch Perfect at the movies and LOVED it. Really want to see it again!
