How did you celebrate Father’s Day?

In our house we let daddy sleep in until about 7:30am, made him french toast and scrambled eggs, and then let him enjoy his cup of coffee in semi-quiet.  The emphasis is on semi.  The boys then gave daddy a biscuit joiner as his father’s day gift.  Yes, I know it’s not as creative as the wonderful mother’s day gifts that I received, but it’s something he has been begging for for a long, long time.

And then, Ryan took daddy to see Toy Story 3 in the theater.  This was Ryan’s first movie on the big screen and daddy said he did great!  He watched intently and ate all of his popcorn.  He even sat still through the whole movie.  Ryan was so proud when he got home and was so excited to tell mommy and Owen all about it.

Mommy:  “Ryan!!  How was the movie?”
Ryan:  “Good!  Really, really good!”
Mommy:  “What was your favorite part?”
Ryan:  “Ummm….. the popcorn!!”

Oh well.  I should have known better with a question like that.  He did actually love the movie too though and told me bits and pieces about it all afternoon.  He thought it was pretty funny when Buzz switched to Spanish mode and started dancing.  He even showed me how he danced.

Daddy and Ryan both gave the movie two thumbs up!  And now mommy can’t wait to see it.  Who knows?  Maybe mommy and Ryan will go again before it comes out on DVD.

After a little afternoon nap (yes, all four of us slept!) we headed out for a late afternoon swim.  The boys did great and are becoming quite the little fishies in the water.  Owen even practiced jumping off the edge of the pool!  He went from screaming in the water on Saturday to jumping off the edge on Sunday.

You never know what a day will bring…..

We hope you had a super fantastic Father’s Day daddy!  We love you lots and lots and lots.

I know I say this every week, but how can it be Tuesday already?!  Don’t get me wrong, I wish it was Friday today.  I wish this every week on Tuesday.  And Monday and Wednesday too.  By Thursday I can already see Friday approaching so I’m fine with Thursday.  It’s just Monday through Wednesday that I try to avoid.

But at least today I have Tuesday Ten to look forward to.  And this week, I’m going to tell you my all time favorite movies.  Please feel free to share yours as well.  Post your own Tuesday Ten (same topic as mine or make up your own!) and link up through the Linky tool at the bottom of the post.  As always this list is in no particular order.  Well, except that Serendipity is my all time favorite movie so that had to be number one!

1.  Serendipity
2.  Pretty Woman
3.  Cutting Edge
4.  My Best Friend’s Wedding
5.  The Wedding Planner
6.  Toy Story
7.  How To Lose a Guy in 10 Days
8.  Dumb and Dumber
9.  13 Going on 30
10.  Legally Blonde

Those are ten of the movies I could (and have) watched over and over again.  I admit, I’m a sucker for feel good chick flick movies.  I’m a girl and I’m allowed.  I also enjoy a good comedy as well.  But when it comes to the Sci-Fi or violent, dark movies you can count me out.  I’m sure there are some good ones out there and I know I’ve seen a few of them (and enjoyed them actually), but in general they just don’t make it to my Netflix queue.  Which is probably why the hubby tries to keep the password away from me.  Just because one time and only one time I might add, I edited the queue so that Sex and the City series and the Friends series consumed the top 25 in the queue.

I’m just saying.  Would that make you change the password for Netflix?  I think not.  And still, over a year later those DVDs have still not arrived.  But funny thing.  We receive two or so movies a week; just not Sex and the City or Friends.  Oh what I would do to own either of those series on DVD.  I would watch them over and over and over and over……
