movie review

I had heard very mixed reviews for this movie. For ONE obvious reason, I could not wait to see it. Here are my thoughts:

1) I am not sure how people came up with the idea that Reese Witherspoon and Robert (love of my life) Pattinson did not have chemistry....YUH-HUH they did! I thought their chemistry was great. My theory on this? Glad you asked... Pattinson is going to be hard-pressed to find on screen chemistry with ANYONE like he had with Kristin Stewart. I think everyone is basing their opinion on that. Nevertheless, I was glued to the screen last night watching Marlena and Jacob!

2) It was very interesting to me to see how the "circus people" live. Very fascinating. Having said that, there were one or two parts that caused me to cover my face with a napkin... (If you've read the book, you know what I mean.)

3) Those of you who are concerned with language, this movie has very little "bad" language. I thought each scene (including the love scenes) were very tastefully done.

I PERSONALLY give WATER FOR ELEPHANTS 4 out of 5 stars! It is worth the price of the ticket to see Robert Pattinson's beautiful face on the big screen for two hours!!

easter sunday

Our Easter Sunday was fabulous!! We did not go to our church services. We all three slept in. When we woke up, we read the resurrection story out of the Bible AND in JP's little Bible. We prayed as a family and then I made pancakes! YUM!! We hung around the house most of the morning and then headed to the hospital to visit Scott's Mamaw. After we left the hospital, we ate lunch at Scott's parent's house. We left there and came home and napped for SEVERAL HOURS! Once we woke up from the (much needed) nap we had an egg hunt at Nanny and Papa's house! I will post those pictures later. It was a WONDERFUL day!!

JP's Bible. He loves to read it! I did put JP in some "Easter" looking clothes. He was so handsome. I do not know why the next two pictures are uploading so small... I will work on it and re post them!
