It's been a quiet few days for us, with Maggie not feeling well and healing from strep throat. We spent much of the weekend indoors, which was nice, yet also lent itself to some aspects of stir-craziness. I'm sure you can relate. We watched "Meet the Robinsons" one time too many. :)
Aron and I had a date night on Saturday night and I was surprised that he didn't mind seeing "Twilight," so off we went to the theater. I had pretty low expectations for the movie, as typically, a movie that follows a much-loved book pales in comparison. But, I was pleasantly surprised how much I enjoyed the movie! It was done well; it was entertaining. I wouldn't say it was the best movie of all time, or in my top 10 by any means, but it was worth the money and time spent. It paralled the book and had quite a bit of subtle humor that only one who had read the book would understand. Our theater was comprised of 80% females, so you can imagine all the responses whenever "Edward Cullen" (the lead male character) appeared, talked, or smiled. There was a bunch of loud cheering, laughing, and generally guffawing on our audiences' part. Maybe this made the experience enjoyable, too--seeing it with other fans of the book series.
After we got home Saturday night from the movie, we decided to set up our Christmas decorations. It was wonderful to stay up until 1:30am, decorating, listening to Christmas music, and drinking coffee with my husband. The house was officially cleaned and finished by Sunday morning! And I'm LOVING the holiday feel our place now possess.
Thanksgiving will be spent with our friends Renee and Sheldon and I'm looking foward to our time at their house on Thursday!
