Oh, what a busy weekend.  And before it, too.  Friday we went to see Snow White and the Huntsman.  I enjoyed that a lot.  Of course, you have to forget mostly everything you know about the "original" Snow White tale, but that's okay.  It was definitely more of an action flick, but what's wrong with that?  I didn't even hate Kristen Stewart as much as I thought I would (sorry, Twilight fans, but I'm horribly prejudiced against her because of the movies, not that I ever saw them, so that's an awful thing to do, isn't it!  But I've never been a vampire fan, and it's something I don't even try to explain, it just is.).  I read that she was awful, but she did just fine, I thought.  Of course the moments of disbelief were huge:  a girl imprisoned from age 7 or so onward is able to run like the wind and swim in the very rough ocean, but don't bother with details, I say, although hubby and I both snickered at that section.  The action was enough to carry the film from a pure enjoyment level, I thought.  And the sets and costumes and such were very well done.

Then Sat. was full of yard work and then the grandkiddies came to spend the night, and much hugs and kisses and snuggles went on, enough to fill this grandma's heart for a day or two.  Early the next morning, DiL came to pick up younger grandson and Grandpa and I took older grandson to see Madagascar 3.  I have to admit I have not seen the other two Madagascar movies (and I plan to remedy that), and I really enjoyed it, even laughing out loud several times.  I think it might have even kept the 2 yr old sufficiently entertained enough to stay in his seat throughout, but we didn't want to take a chance on that, hence him going on home.  And the older one is jealous of his younger brother of course, so it's good that we take him by himself every once in a while.

In between the yard work and grandkiddies, we finally bought a flat screen tv.  It's a smart tv with wireless, but I haven't had a chance yet to experiment with what I can do with it.  And likely won't for about a week or so, we're going to be gone quite a bit and when I am here, I've the grandkiddies. 

Sunday was full of mopping and vaccuuming and then trying to get caught up on things.  Meanwhile, the slushing, it never ends.  *sigh*  I do love it, but every once in a while, I do wish it would go on vacation for a couple of weeks.  We do have days where we're caught up, but they're few and far between.
