A Day in the Life - Movie Night
The last time that I went to the movie theatre was before my oldest was born - that's over four years ago. You know what? I'm ok with that. Recently, I received a couple of movie gift certificates and so tonight the family is off to the theatre! The movie of choice?: The Pirates Who Don't Do Anything: A Veggie Tales Movie. Well, actually this wasn't the movie of first choice. I had wanted to take the family to a Christmas movie (I've been hanging onto these gift certificates for a couple of months). The only Christmas movie that seemed remotely appropriate was Alvin and the Chipmunks. But after reviewing Focus on the Family's review, I decided that Alvin and the somewhat crude Chipmunks weren't something that my 2 and 4 year old needed to be influenced by. Maybe Focus on the Family is too hard core, or maybe I am. Or maybe desensitization is something that I find terribly frightening . Either way, I have decided to invest our family's time and popcorn monies into the Veggie Tales movie - even though , (according to Focus on the Family), it's Christian message is watered down. The girl's are both going to wear their Veggie Tales t-shirts tonight - It should be fun!
