The Wedding and the New Year

This weekend was really busy, with Jeremy's brother getting married. Everything went smoothly and the reception was fun. The kids looked adorable in their dresses and ties, and the couple wasn't too shabby either. Kaden has found his new calling in life - a photographer. He hasn't put his camera down for the last three days!! Thanks Uncle Mike for finding a blue one in Oregon!

New Year's Eve brought more family to our house. Betty and Fred came up with Scott and Carol-Lynn, but with a pooped mother of the groom they left at about 9:30. Jessica and Luke stayed with their kids until about 12:30, just long enough to ring in the New Year. Amazingly enough, Howie (who is a week younger than Brynnlee) made it to ring in 2007 and didn't even take a snooze on the 20 min. drive home. What a trooper.

Kaden was excited to stay up late and cried when we told him it was really time for bed. He kept telling us there was "only one more race on Cars." This morning he came into our room and the first thing he asks is:

"Mom, is it Sunday?"

No, it's Monday.

Can I finish watching Cars?

Needless to say he watched it twice before we went to Grandma and Grandpa's for dinner.

After dinner we went to go see Night At The Museum. I should use that term lightly since I only made it about 30 mins into the movie before Brynnlee had a meltdown and we spent the next hour and a half roaming the halls. She was crying and screaming so loudly that two different times theater employees came down the hall and confirmed with me that everything was ok. Yeah, if sitting in the hall with a fit-throwing child is ok- then I'm wonderful. Hey, its only New Years Day 2007 once! Hope you made the best of yours.

Running par for Blogger I'm not able to load the pictures. I'll post them tomorrow- if I'm lucky!

I did the same exact thing with Maddie during the same movie but on Christmas Day. The rest of my family loved it. Guess I'll have to wait to buy it before I'll know what the kids are talking about.

That is why my kids have only ever been to two movies, and I regret even those two.
