Kinda just went by...

Last Sunday was our Anniversary. Travis worked, I stayed home from church with sick kids. It wasn't a very thrilling anniversary. But, that's okay because it was still our anniversary. 15 years. That's a long time. Our marriage is a teenager. (o: We did go and see the new Harry Potter movie...finally...on Friday. It was an awesome movie! I cried. Like...a...baby!!! Embarrassing, I know, but I thought that they did a beautiful job at cramming the book into such a short time span. (yes, it was 2 1/2 hours...I coulda sat there for 5 hours if I had to) I especially was impressed with how Alan Rickman portrayed Snape in the end. He did such an excellent job of expressing the torment that you know he was feeling...without saying a word. It was just fabulous. I hope that it will be out in time for Christmas, and I've already told my mom that's all I want. (o: I know, I am a hopeless addict. But, Harry Potter has gotten me through some tough times and made me happy. I'm going to have to get a new set...maybe the set of all paperbacks...for the kids to read, cause I've pretty much worn the ones I have out. My kids are just now asking to see the first movie and I am allowing it. But only the first. I told them we would start reading the books once we finish with the Boxcar Children series. *sigh* It makes me happy.

(I do not know why I have started the habit of using all these dots .... but I have so I hope I don't annoy anyone out there with them.)

Yesterday we went to visit Travis at his new home store. They transferred him to a store that is not open 24 hours!!! It's a really nice store with really nice people. I really love the Walgreens company so far. Well, since Travis got "paid up" as Connor said, I told them I would buy them a treat. They each got a sell inflating whoopee cushion.


Looks just like the yellow one. Yep, I wish you could have heard them. Laughing so hard tear were rolling down their faces. Of course, after about 6 hours of CONTINUOUS use, they started to tear and the fart sounds are weak, but they really had a spectacular time with those things. They were kinda pricey, so I was bummed that they didn't hold up better. The reason they are so into whoopee cushions is because of this chick...

Don't ask. You can go to http://respectthepouch.com/ if you really wanna know. It's a Capri Sun thing. We don't even have cable, but they saw the commercials and we have internet...that's all it took.

Anyway...to finish off my rather long and rambling post, here is a picture I took of my children because I love them so much...
Wait...here's another...just because. I tried to be clever and put them on different steps, but I'm not a photographer and they really wanted to leave to go buy their little fart bags, so...
Oh, and ps...Little Lizbet is 90% ready to crawl. She's almost got it. She's 6 month old! Crawling?! Isn't that kinda sad? I'm crying again. I need to go read me some HP.

Congratulations on 15 years, that's wonderful. And you do have a beautiful family. The pictures of the kids are very cute.

Happy Anniversary! This October will be our 15th too. I had to laugh at the whoopie cushions! My boys think they are hilarious too.

We had our 15th Anniversary too! In May. It was on a Wednesday? so it was kind of lame too.
I can't even remember what we did! Good thing I blog so I can go back and see what we did.
I got a nice necklace.
SO, Happy 15th Anniversary! Glad that you FINALLY got to see the new Harry Potter movie!
I recommend the new japanese animation movie called Ponyo. My 7 yr old LOVED it and she's usually bored at movies. It was really sweet and exciting too!
I really don't mind the ... I do it too...
