Family Movie Night

The boys wanted to have a family movie night tonight, so we printed off our monthly Blockbuster coupons and headed off to pick out some movies. Tonight's flick was Evan Almighty. ES at first was annoyed with me for picking out this movie. In the car on the way home though, I asked him, "Who was Noah?" We talked during the car ride home about who Noah was and what God told him to do. Then I explained to ES that this was a funny movie where God appears and tells some guy named Evan to build another ark and everyone thinks he's crazy. We all enjoyed the movie tremendously. It was a pretty safe movie for kids - no profanity or gratuitous sex or blood and gore.

LW made some awesome gingerbread waffles from a Rachel Ray recipe for dinner tonight. Yes, we like to have breakfast for dinner periodically. I saw LW putting some pumpkin stuff in them - that's the only way she'll ever get those boys to eat anything pumpkin or otherwise vegetable-related is by hiding it.

Catching up on the Amazing Race tonight... What an excellent example in karma. So they all have to find a way to Vilnius, Lithuania from the middle of Western Africa. They go to the Air France office and the first team, Nicolas and his grandpa, sat down with the agent. The Air France agent girl claimed not to speak much English, but I think she was holding out on them. Nicolas tried to tell her he needed the quickest ticket possible to Lithuania, she said there was a flight that arrived at 1:20 p.m. He told her that'd be great and asked her to put all the other people on later flights... with the other teams standing right behind him well within earshot. Way to burn bridges, dude. So then, the airline lady tells him that flight is full and gives them a flight that lands at 5:35 p.m. Meanwhile, the next team goes to the next agent over, and she puts them on the 1:20 p.m. flight. The real kicker is that the same lady who claimed not to speak English to Nicolas-the-dimwit, when the next team came up, she just booked them on the 1:20 p.m. flight. So she just totally bagged Nicolas because he asked her to bag the other teams. Good job, Nicolas! (sarcasm) Not only did your karma bring you a 4 hour delay, but because the other teams heard your treachery, nobody's ever going to help you when you're in a tight spot. Between that and Nicolas' inability to find the salon later on, I can't believe they pulled it off - they almost came in last this leg.

Last random observation of the evening: Why do I always have Star Wars music going in the back of my head??? Sorry, just a little sarcasm. Those of you who know my boys and their obsession with all things Star Wars know that if they aren't playing a Star Wars video game, then they've probably got one of the Star Wars movies on in the background.

Oh my...those waffles sound so good! As if anything else needs to be added to the "must make" list! *grin*

Post a review on the movie! And more importantly, have a better weekend than you had week!
