Movie recommendations, and other things.

My librarian recommends good movies.
Twice, anyway. (She's two for two.)
1. August Rush
2. The Ultimate Gift
Now, I have passed these recommendations on to you. Enjoy.
Here is an un-recommendation:
Mr Magorium's Wonder Emporium. The movie is fine until the last 5 minutes. Talk about anti-climactic. Joe and I looked at each other and said in unison- "That's it?"

And now, I must also recommend a book.
I am reading it in the morning like a devotional even though it's not really written as one.
"A Simple Christmas: A Faith-filled Guide to a Meaningful and Stress-free Christmas"
by Sharon Hanby-Robie.
So far I have been inspired to focus on making Christmas holy, and I also like her reference to
Buy Nothing Christmas a Mennonite thing from Canada.

Well, I have enjoyed this brief sit-down with you, but now I must clean the playroom before SuperWHY ends.

Hey, did anyone else notice that there are only 3 days left of the cute baby in the corner? I wonder if they have an extension mode that goes into the minuses- because I have a feeling we're gonna need it.

I noticed!..and have been thinking of you..I hope when the time comes it goes smoothly and you and baby are healthy. Shaun is headed out your way tonight to Letchworth..he's gotten a moose and a bear so far this season..we need some venison now. Thanks for the book recommendations...just this morning I asked Jess (17) what she wanted for Christmas and she said "nothing..maybe some razors"..ha! So simple may be easier this year than ever! Take care of yourself and your precious family~Carol
