Polar Express.....

.....ok, so this has to be one of the most worthless movies ever. Any person who spent countless hours reading this book to their children would be disappointed. ROFL...that sounds very hateful, doesn't it? Sorry to the makers, but I think you would have fared better in my book had you just simply did the story without all the ad lib. I knew that you would have trouble with filling two hours of film with ten minutes of story.... LOL

but...the reason for going was fun....it was free famiy night at a little drive-in theater in the middle of a cornfield in indiana. we went with one of my friends and her family. it was fun to do, but the movie was (as my brit friends would say) shite!

so the babies were fairly well behaved. they did, however, manage to stuff a coin in the cd player in the van. Lucky for us, the cd player still works, unlike the cd player in the Geo.... *sigh* (I'm not sure if I've mentioned it or not, but Griffin managed to stick a coin in the cd player of the geo...and now it doesn't work)

other than that, not much new in the life at the Zoo. Aaron did keep the kids this morning so that I could go see good Old Doc H for a bunch of teeth work. I go back in just over two weeks to get the permanent crown put on. Giving me a total of three crowns, two root canals (on the crowned teeth), and a bunch of fillings. I shudder to begin counting how many fillings I have. *sigh*

A big hug goes out to all my Brit friends, for the losses they've endured through the latest terrorist attack. Thankfully, I don't think I know anyone who was in London. The friend that did work in London is now working in Reading. *whew*

yeah, I was wondering how they'd make such a long damn movie out of a small book....it just doesn't seem like a good idea. And funny you saw it in summer, too since it's a wintery movie :-)

I have one molar that isn't a permanent crown and have had at least 2 root canals; maybe three.. can't remember. Thank goodness I have a wonderful dentist! I sure hope my kids have better teeth than I do! (They probably won't.. I'm married to a Brit!)
