A Night at the Movies

Since Ry is in Graduate School now, our time to spend with him is VERY limited. Between his full-time job, and school not too mention church responsibilities, moments with him aren't as many as we are used to. Friday night, he came home with a surprise, the LCD projector from work! He suggested a movie/pizza night after a long day of studying on Saturday. Our dining/family room space was just perfect with a nice clean wall to project onto. We watched Cars which we checked out from the library. Most of us hadn't seen it at all (I know, isn't that crazy?) and Ryan had only seen a few parts. So, after some pizza, we popped some popcorn, got our jammies on, and had a fabulous time! Ry hooked some extra speakers up to his Mac and it was just as if we were at the movie theater --the sound, the smell of popcorn, and the big picture on the wall. I can't wait to do this again! Actually I'm hoping to do it again this Saturday when we'll watch The Polar Express movie together to gear up for our Polar Express Train Ride coming up next week at Mt. Hood. Fun, FUN, stuff!

MaMa, Sofia, Sydnei, and Ryan.
Our very own movie theater. It was awesome.
By the way, the pictures on the wall to the left are some art projects Sofia and her friends, Natalie and Isabel made. They've been "on display" for a few weeks now!

Papi and Sydnei enjoying the movie.

What a FUN night together, AND it was free! ... and "Free is a very good price." (That little saying if for all of you Portland readers--if you grew up here, you'll know where that came from!)

p.s. And while we enjoyed this, I got TONS of Christmas present wrapping done. Yessssssssssssss.

So fun Stormson! Cars is THE all time favorite movie at our house. Tyce will choose that one every time if not manipulated into a different "choice"!! LOVE family movie night!
