Ten on Tuesday

1. We saw Star Wars on Opening Day.  Not a midnight showing because we're too old for that stuff, but we're still fans.  ;)

2. No spoilers, but I will say I'm way more on board with Reagan's nickname being Rea than I was before I saw Rey in The Force Awakens.  I thought "Ray" seemed kind of masculine.  But Rey is awesome.  I actually feel a little smug about being 9 months ahead of the trend I see coming.

3. I just looked at my last post and realized it's already been 2 months.  To follow-up on our movie-viewing, Inside Out is now on constant repeat in our house as well.  I DID cry a little the first time I watched it, so I appreciated the warning.

4. The Polar Express was also pretty popular this month. 

5. And Star Wars, of course.  We got all the first 6 on digital.  And we got Star Wars Rebels.  And Star Wars Droid Tales.  Droid Tales is hilarious.

6. Thanksgiving and Christmas were wonderful.  I hope everyone else enjoyed their holidays as much as I did.  We actually had a postponed Thanksgiving because the big family dinner was on Sunday, so Thursday, Friday, and Saturday, Tyler and I painted 2 rooms in the house and installed shadowbox wainscoting in one of them.

7. Speaking of which, the premade shadowboxes are worth every. single. penny.  Even if I did have some sticker shock when I got to the register.

8. My parents are in town for Christmas, and the kids are loving it.  On Wednesday night, I announced that it was time for haircuts, and Mason started fussing about it until my dad said, pointing to his buzz cut, "I'll do it!  You want a haircut like mine?"  And Mason calmed right down and took him up on it.  Then Lincoln thought it looked cool and wanted a matching one, too.  Dad's offered to give me that haircut for years now, and he finally got 2 takers.  Tyler and I passed, and Reagan doesn't have much more hair to begin with.

9. Aside from general holiday festivities like cookie decorating and cookie eating, we've also been playing a lot of Splendor, if anyone is looking for a game recommendation.

10. On Christmas Eve we walked to the park because it was such a gorgeous day, and on Christmas Day, we got record rainfall resulting in flooding.  "Welcome to the South, where the weather is made up, and the Seasons don't matter."

  1. "Seasons don't matter?" Ain't it the truth?!?! Saw Star Wars last night actually. Thought it was ok, but I am not a huge fan, so I will need to do some research to fill in the blanks :)
