Snow Day #3 = Movie Day!

This is the supposed to be the last week of school before the Christmas break.  Today is officially snow day #3.  They might as well go ahead and declare it the Christmas break.  Snow days in Kentucky happen when there is only 2 inches of snow on the ground.  Sounds pretty lame to those who only get snow days when there is 2 feet of snow on the ground.  I can only guess that today was declared a snow day because we are expecting "inclement weather" later this afternoon.  The National Weather Service has put us under a scary sounding "Winter Storm Warning".  All the details can be found here.

We've decided to make today an all day movie day!  I told the kids that we'd all pick a movie to watch.

Kaia goes first because she's the youngest.  Her choice...

Who doesn't enjoy a good laugh with Wayne and Garth?  Schaaaa-wing!

Neil's choice...

I'll admit that I did enjoy watching Star Trek: The Next Generation when I was younger.  You could also occasionally find me watching the original Star Trek.  I haven't been such a fan of the other versions though or many of the movies either.  However, this movie was enjoyable and I was pleasantly surprised.

My choice...

Gary Oldman is so good looking as the young Dracula.  The whole movie is pretty much populated with good looking people so you can't really go wrong.  Even Sir Anthony Hopkins is quite handsome.

So now I'm off to watch some movies with the kids!  Nothing better than being snuggled up on the couch with them watching movies all day!


  1. Yes please to #1 & #2...but I have never been a Star Trek fan. I'd rather sit & pull out my eyelashes one by one than to watch a single episode.

    Strong reaction? Perhaps.

    But, I am just that serious...

  2. I need to see Dracula. Star Trek was really good. I was impressed since I was not into the show at all. And Wayne's World is definitely a classic. I haven't seen it in years.
