Les Mis

David, Jessica and I went to see Les Miserables tonight.  It was great! except for one scene, which I wish they would make more family friendly.  Perhaps I'm old fashioned, but I would not go see such a scene on the big screen and if I had known ... or remembered it being choreographed in such a graphic way, I would not have gone to see it at the Theater either.  I just don't think it's necessary.   I was embarrassed to be there, and even more embarrassed to have my children there.  Shame on a theater for rating it as a family friendly show.  It was not family friendly.

Getting Old

Did you assume from the title I was talking about me?  Geesh ... of course, not.  haha.  No, my van.  :)  I looked down this morning and noticed that my van now has 71,717 miles.  It made me smile! 

I know it won't be long until we have to part with this van and get a wheelchair enabled van, but for now this van sure has been very good to us.  The best part is that it's paid off.  That's my favorite part, and the mobility vans are super expensive ... not my favorite part.  I guess it'll be worth the trade off of not having to lift Ryan's wheelchair in and out of the van.  :)

Goofy Munchkins

On school days, Johnathon and Deborah like to take Ryan out to meet his bus for school.  This morning was a typical school day.  EXCEPT that when we went outside I look down to see this: 

I should also mention that her t-shirt was on backwards, and she had on some funny pants, and pool sandals.  She was quite the site.  The glasses are 3-D movie glasses which have had the lenses removed. 

 I think the bus drivers at least got a good smile and chuckle for the day.  :)  I know I did.

Happy New Year

 Well, no one here can hold still even long enough for a quick picture.  But, hope you all have a happy new year!
