It's week two of the 2010 Review Extravaganza!  We are covering April, May and June.  If you missed out on playing last week, no worries start up now!  There is no grading here.  So come and play along with all of us!

I missed something in last weeks post...it was my first blogiversary.  It was in Feb.  But really it was before that.  You can see my "return" post here.  I had a really weird incident with my glasses and losing a lens.  I never did find it.  I got tickled pink!

There were two earthquakes within about 2 months of each other and they were related to each other.  It was the Easter quake in the Mexi/Cali area.  That one was a pretty good shaker.  The second one got our attention but it wasn't quite as bad as the first.  

In May,

It's A Christmas Movie!!!

For some curious reason, every year around this time, Harry Potter movies are played along with other holiday movies.  Why?  Well, as Rich would tell you, since Christmas is depicted in each movie, it stands to reason that they would each be a Christmas movie.

Movie One:  Shows Hagrid bringing a tree to be decorated in the grand hall of Hogwarts.  We see Harry delight in receiving his first ever, real Christmas presents.  Hermione even wishes them a "Happy Christmas."  On and on in each movie Christmas is depicted in one form or another.  Each movie spans a year of time, so naturally Christmas will show up.  So what am I babbling about anyway???  I finally got to see it!!!  Yeah that one.  Up there!!  **squeal!**  Sadly we didn't get to see it in IMAX.  But we so totally could have!  How?  Welllll

See I am a bit of a scatter brain.  I heard the guy say HP on the left.  Forget that this theatre has 16 cinemas.  Forget that HP is playing in two of them.  I just B-lined it…

She's Good...

Kristin took this one.  How she ever managed to get Ryan to lay there is beyond me.  It's a cool shot.  Here's a few more.. A borrowed idea...but still a good one. Action shots And why aren't there any pictures of Kristin....welll.... The doctor slowed her down!  She will have it on for a month. Plus 4 weeks after of no P.E.  Yeah, she's crushed about that.  Her cast is now covered with signatures.  It took less than 4 days for that to happen.
Come see her winter formal shots here...

The 20 year veteran Santa at Macy's  gets canned - the very one we've visited every year. M.: "I can't believe you let me sit on that freakshow's lap all these years!!" HAHAHAHAHAHAAA!!! If you know the mama...you'll recognize the daughter!!! OMG!  I can totally hear this from her daughter. She has taught her well.  I am a similar influence on my own kids!  B…

Favorite Christmas....

When I was little, I loved to decorate the Christmas tree and sing the songs.  I still do.  When I was little, I would get so excited as the presents started collecting under the tree.  It would grow and grow.  I can still remember some favorite presents.  A big girl doll.  Basically she was a 3 foot tall doll.  I loved that doll.  But I can't really tell you all Christmas presents I have received.  Can you?  Can you remember what you got last year?

Growing up, I remember being so excited on Christmas Eve.  I could barely sleep.  Santa was sure smart, he always left a little something in our rooms to keep us busy.  A coloring book when we were kids.  Or an activity magazine.  Sure I remember --kind of--those silly presents.  But what I remember more than that, is sitting in the hall with my sister...waiting and giggling and making noises...like opening and closing the door of the wall heater.  "Accidentally." kicking the same door.  It was metal.  Both were a noise make…
