Carolyn and I had our first date in six months yesterday. The last time we went out was the night before Laura Marie was born. We saw Night at the Museum 2, then went to dinner at Zia’s.
Yesterday afternoon our good friends Josh and Christi, along with their boys, watched the baby while we went to see A Christmas Carol. Man, it was good! Nearly every year we read or watch A Christmas Carol. It’s one of our Christmas traditions. So it was really cool to have a new version of it come out. Not only was it a new version, but it was 3-D in the theater–it was so cool!
We’d never seen a 3-D movie before. Now I’m hooked on it. We saw previews for some upcoming 3-D movies. I want to see them all! Even without the 3-D, it was a great version of the classic story. For the most part they stuck very closely to the book. One of the best parts was their depiction of Victorian London in a snowy December. I loved it. They also made the most of the 3-D effects. Now that I think about it, I’d like to see it again before it leaves theaters!
I figure having one date twice a year is probably a good place to start.
(By the way, if y’all see this, a big THANKS to the Engles for taking care of our baby!!!)
