A Little Late

Happy Halloween!

Yes, I understand that this picture is teeny tiny. I don't really know what I'm doing, but I'll fix it if I can figure out how...

Oh, and for those who want to know why I was so hard on that movie down there in my last post.

1. It scared ME, so I know it scared my kids. (The younger ones, anyway)

2. When I want to watch a Christmas movie, I want to feel good. Very little about this movie made me feel good.

Now, for the record, I know the story of "A Christmas Carol" very well. I am aware that the story IS somewhat scary, blah blah blah. I know. But I also think that if you bill a movie as a "family" or "kids" movie, than it should be appropriate for that audience. Well, I didn't think it was. I thought parts of it were too graphic, too scary, and too dark. I don't want to give it away, for those of you who haven't seen it. I also want to disclose, for the record, that my husband completely disagrees with me on this one. He thought it was extremely well made (it was) and true to the original story (it was). He also thinks that if "you know the story, you should be prepared for all of that...." OK, maybe. But again I say, when you advertise, just show us plainly what we're in for so that us silly mommies won't go and warp our children for life.

Thank you.

I couldn't agree with you more about A Christmas Carol. When we saw it, the theater was full of little kids and they were all scared to death. I heard a little kid in the row in front of me ask, "is it over Mommy?" I think they could have done as other cartoon versions and left that scary stuff out.

On another note your kids looked Awesome for Halloween!
