So Many Things.

As I settle into the next three days of work..I look back at our First Christmas as our own family with a huge smile on my face. On Christmas we went to see a movie..and deemed that our Christmas day tradition. We have the others as well, making cookies from scratch, a big family dinner, and making a gingerbread house..but I really liked going to the movies as one of our traditions. I think when the movie comes out I will buy it..and the next years and all the other years too.

Our First Christmas: The Curious Case of Benjamin Button
I had tears just streaming down my face for a majority of the movie.. and I am not entirely sure why. I will blame it on PMS. It was a really great movie, so I urge you all to see it too! (Just bring some tissues just in case you wind up like me and have to wipe your face with the same napkin you wiped your greasy popcorn hands on!) When the movie ended as David & I were rushing out of there we noticed everyone was hugging..so I think the majority of the crowd really got touched by the movie.

I loved this movie! I cried several times too, and no PMS on this end.

And yes, A Lexus equates love. I thought everyone knew that!
