Friday films and Saturday sports

It's a movie bonanza for me today. Today was opening day for Chicken Little, and my 3 youngest were clamoring to go. The spouse unit really wasn't interested in seeing it, so off the 4 of us went to a late afternoon show. It was a cute movie. Once again, Disney made a flick with a dearly-departed maternal figure. What is up with that?? I found myself identifying with Runt of the Litter (enough with the fat jokes, family members), mostly because he and I share a strange tendency to quote song lyrics at the drop of a hat. I enjoyed it, but I'm not sure if it's one we'll wind up adding to our DVD library or not.

Emily didn't want to see Chicken Little, so she and I are taking in the only showing of Elizabethtown later tonight. We'll have to head out in about an hour or so. I'm sure I'll be quite ready for bed when we get home, considering the fact that it will be around midnight by that time!


Tomorrow brings another flag football game for Noah. Acck... I just remembered it's our turn to bring snacks for the team! Guess I'll be making a run to CostCo before the game. But back to football.... one of our neighbors used to coach college football (I believe at Oklahoma State), and he often does a little one-on-one with Noah out in the cul-de-sac, giving him pointers on passing and kicking. I appreciate his thoughtfulness, and I know Noah really enjoys playing with him. I'll have to be sure to send over a plate of cookies for him this holiday season.

Did you like "Elizabethtown"? Emily probably enjoyed some one-on-one time!

Go OSU--both PH and I graduated from there--we don't keep up with it much anymore--since we live in TX--and none of our kids went there--but sounds like a really nice neighbor to practice with Noah!

Hope you enjoy your Saturday of football and snacking-bearing.
