Saturday at the Movies

My obsession with sewing felt holiday ornaments is back with a vengeance. Funny, 'cuz I just told my brother at Thanksgiving dinner that I wasn't going to make them this year.
Go figure! That is a true testimony for how my brain works sometimes. Yes, so I stayed-up way too late last night half-sewing several different designs out of this awesome new felt I've discovered at JoAnn's. It's made out of recycled plastic bottles and the colors are so vivid and practically "technicolor." Toooooo beautiful. After all this gabbing about the felt you think I'd take a photo? Maybe when I actually complete one of the ten that are lying half finished on my kitchen table, I'll share.
I also made this cutie using Kristin's wood beads with the painted cherries and one that I bought from Michael's a while back. I'm very happy with it. Cub tried to hijack it this morning, too! I'm planning on making her one, but this is just "me," so I think I'll keep it. Thank you.
Just take a look at the color of that REAL pumpkin. Gorgeous. And never let anyone tell you there isn't a difference between the real and the canned stuff. There totally is!
This is one of my favorite pies...Pumpkin with Walnut Streusel topping. I usually go with pecans, but three supermarkets were out of them. What the??
The real pumpkin bakes almost like a creamy flan, only with more body. Sublime.

Here is a little scene from Cub's room that caught my eye tonight.

...And now, for the highlight of our day...Tah-Dah!
Yup, we went to see HSM3!!
Cub now thinks she's all that and a bag of chips because she went to see a "big kid" movie!

I have to say, I was not looking forward to it. I kept thinking to myself on the way there, "I haven't been to the theatre to see a film in two years, and now I'm going to see this?"
But you know what? It was actually good. I know people will think I've lost my mind for saying that, but it's true. I do love a good musical, so maybe that has something to do with it.
I don't know, I was totally engaged as were the other three mom's and kidletts. I guess that's the magic of Disney!! It was colorful, bright, and upbeat. Our kids all sat in the row in front of us. So adorable to watch them all sitting on the edge of their seats enjoying the show! Afterwards, we all went out for pizza.
Good times.

It's so funny to read your post about going to the movies. From 1980-87 I birthed three kids and I tell people all the time that I have no knowledge of movies, popular music or other trends as I had my hands full. The only movies I saw during those years were Disney films and E.T. I remember at one point everyone talking about Dirty Dancing though I have never seen the film but I wouldn't give up the Disney years for anything!

Greetings and Salutations! Thanks for visiting my blog and for your kind comments. Sounds like we have a lot in common. After perusing your blog I think we have some REALLY GOOD STUFF in common too, not just the blue eyed devil thing.....Your blog is pretty and fun and has made me really hungry! I have a request for the recipe for the scrumptious looking pumpkin pie. I have a TOP SECRET recipe for my FAMOUS pumpkin cheesecake. Want to trade??? I have never given it to another living soul. But YOU DESERVE it.
Along with True Love, Shoes that don't hurt, and the Ability to Graciously Tolerate Disney Movies!!!xo Susan
PS Your Daughter's foot looks scrumptious too, but I doubt there is a recipe for that......teehee. I remember those days....
