Mishmash

Last week we attended a Veggie Pirate party at church. I have to share some pictures:



We haven't seen the movie, although I think that we might this weekend.

Speaking of movies, have you noticed that there is a commercial for 27 Dresses on every 15 minutes? Every time I've seen it this week, I feel quite ahead of the curve. I just happened to see the movie last weekend with a girlfriend at a special advance screening. Since I never see movies, and certainly never see them before their official release, I feel like quite the trendsetter. It was a cute movie.

Speaking of cute, could he be any cuter?

Kyle really enjoys helping in the kitchen. Last week when we were making cornbread, I realized that although he has helped me on occasion, that he hasn't had the opportunities in the kitchen that Amanda did (and does). I remember making brownies with her frequently in Portland, and we moved from there right after she turned two. I wondered if I was suffering from gender stereotyping, but I decided that it was more of the second-child syndrome. When he was two, I think I was holding on to his babyhood instead of anticipating what was to come, like with Amanda. Because of that, his new abilities seem to sneak up on me. Since Amanda still enjoys helping me out, I have to remember to make room for little hands to help.

What a cute helper! The Veggie Tales party looks fun too. Next Tuesday is my son's birthday, so we are going to go see the movie after school on that day. My daughter has never been to the theater, so it should be fun!

This post is great for two reasons:
1. I'm a big fan of pirates.
2. I'm a big fan of MASH, the greatest TV show ever written.

We're headed to see Veggie Pirates tomorrow (Sat.). We have a sitter coming for Ellie and are just taking the two boys. It's their first time in a theater so I'm hoping they like it.
