So I watched probably one of my favorite movies tonight
with one of my favorite people.
this favorite person of mine laughed throughout the entire movie
because this person thought that the movie was and I quote
"way too corny and lovey dovey, if my future spouse talked to me like that I would probably die laughing"
see if I ever invite that person over again!

That said the movie we watched is probably one of my favorites and I love that its wholesome and good and CLEaN!
It is the story of Ester from the bible and the way it is done is beautiful.
This is a movie I can watch over and over and not get tired of it.
The costuming is beautiful and the colors are so vibrant.
Its definitely worth the two hours and four minutes that the movie runs.

Too all of my dear friends and family (that don't really read this anyway) I just wanted to check in and tell you that we are alive. The end of the semester is approaching all too quickly, I am not ready for finals in any way shape or form well maybe one way. I have purchased all of the blue books I will ever need. I have been having nightmares about showing up to class without them so I stopped and bought my blue books today.
In addition to test anxiety, I have this congestion/cold/allergies that I just can't seem to shake I feel like I have been SICK for a WHOLE MONTH! I'm sick of being sick! a classmate told me I should go get tested for mono...I wonder if there is something to that. :( Grace is cutting teeth so she is miserable, and I'm afraid she may have a slight cold as well so our house is super fun as always.

Grace has also decided that she is too cool for her crib and she thinks that my bed is so much more comfortable usually with half of her body draped across mine, a foot in my face or a knee in my ribs, she's a tricky little devil she is! The other night she climbed out of bed sneaked out of her room after I had gone to bed she watched a movie (I know this because the TV and DVD player were on when I woke up the next morning) then decided she wanted to sleep with me so she crawl up and over me to get into bed with me.

She snores.

Swiss Miss

Today being Sunday = Dinner at my parents house.

I had some things in my fridge that needed to be used so I offered to make dinner. Grace and I headed over to The White Silk Purse
shortly after church knowing that the Grandparents would be at their own ward. So I set to work and Grace harassed Lucy. Gumbo takes a lot of chopping and time but its so worth it. IN addition to gumbo I also peeled and diced a bunch of GrannySmith apples. Mom turned them into a pie... it was very good tart but very good.

Grace likes to wander around the house while we congregate in the kitchen to watch antiques roadshow and do random things, mom was making mittens and I was being her cheerleader and catching her up on the goings on in my life when I realized Grace was being too quite, and then suddenly there was laughter. Quiet, then laughter is never a good thing. This is what I found:
