Monday we had family over for our annual pumpkin carving extravaganza. I was so busy preparing food (taco soup, cornbread, and oreo brownies a la mode) and carving pumpkins that I didn't take many pictures. At all. But Mitch and Nan did so hopefully they will post some soon (hint, hint). We had a good time, laughing and crying (Ethan had a carving experience similar to this one, however Ethan's tantrum had a little less crying and a lot more pouting.) In the end we had 6 carved pumpkins, 5 happy children, and Ethan, who was very disappointed in the way his turned out. Oh well, there's always next year.
Yesterday was my brother in laws 30th birthday, and so we took him and his wife out to see a late movie last night. We saw Dan in Real Life. It was sooooooo good. I loved it, and it will be in my top 10 favorite movies of all time. I normally don't like to hype movies up because then people go and see them and are disappointed. GO SEE THIS MOVIE! Steve Carrell is hilarious and charming and Juliette Binoche. Ohhh, Juliette Binoche. She makes any movie perfect. Plus it has Dane Cook, and Emily Blunt, yes, that Emily Blunt. And the soundtrack is amazing and is next on my list of music to purchase. Loved it so much.
I have watched Dancing with the Stars every season except last season, and I love that show. But today I finally watched Mondays and last nights taped episodes and I am so very very disgusted. I love reality tv, except when the person who most deserves to win, doesn't. I have no desire to watch the show anymore, because no other contestant is as good as her. She should not have been kicked off last night. So bummed.
I also just got a chance to watch Michael on Rachel Ray. I fast forwarded through all the stuff that was about sex and wasn't about Michael, and just watched those segments with him in them. He was adorable and funny, and charming, as usual. Now is a good time to share this quote I found about Michael...
"Onstage, he's ham and cheese, slathered with lots of romantic dressing on two slices of dark and handsome. He sings and swings. He does shtick and turns on the charisma."
I think that says it perfectly.
Have a safe and Happy Halloween!
