Sage will not touch a sippy cup or a bottle, but she had to have some Valentine-RED cran-raspberry juice today.

Happy Valentine's Day! Usually we have cereal and milk around here for breakfast, but Valentine's Day on a lazy Saturday calls for an exception.

The rest of our day included making valentines and playing wii. Samuel knocked me out every time in the boxing ring. I cannot figure that sport out. It must be a man thing. Lily went to see Hotel for Dogs with Hannah and her crew for her birthday, and Lexi went babysitting with Brinley! What a big girl! We finished our day with Family Movie Night, Dad's pick. He chose "Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom". It's rated PG, but it had been a long time since we'd seen that movie, and we had both forgotten about the "Snake Suprise", the descending spike room and the heart ripping scene. It was a little intense for the kids, and I'm glad it will be many weeks 'till it's Daddy's pick again. Maybe we'll have time to preview his movie first.


  1. Welcome to the blogging world!!! A bit of movie trivia for you: Temple of Doom is why the movie industry instigated the PG-13 rating . . . too many complaints about it being far to "doom"y for a PG rating.

  2. I am sad to say my kids are all immune to the scary stuff and really enjoy the movies!!!

    I am so glad you decided to start a blog!!!!

  3. Sounds like you had a fun Saturday! I'm with you on The Temple of Doom. Definitely too scary for a PG movie!

  4. Sonia, that is hilarious! I didn't know that. I can definitely see why it inspired some changes in the rating system! Too funny that we found that out this way. I'd tried to cover Eden's eyes during the face-melting in #1, but she would have nothing of it. She told me, "I LIKE scary parts!" During #2, she kept my hand in her lap so she could pull it up to her eyes everytime the horned man came on screen. Guess she doesn't like them THAT scary!
