The Hobbit has a sequel or two and I didn't know it. We took the boys last night and the first movie is long by itself.
Every now and then I'd look at my watch, not that I didn't enjoy the movie, but my knees were starting to ache a bit. And 2 hours and 40 minutes into it, the Dwarfs had been rescued by some big birds, were seeing the lonely mountain way off in the distance and I thought, "Holy crap, they have about 15 minutes to make it across Middle Earth to the mountain, slay the dragon, and do whatever has to be done with that ring..." and then *POOF* the movie ended.
Holy crap. We got home and found out there are two other movies. I had no idea...
This was one of my favorite things I came across on Christmas. This made me choke up, it made me laugh, and it made my heart warm.
God bless this man. Or rather, I think He already has, and I don't mean by football tickets. Listen to him... the happiness in all he says from the beginning through the end.
It seems like this is a man who walks with Joy in his heart. Listen to his grandchildren in the background, vying for his attention. He has a heart filled with love.
The wee lasses leave tomorrow. The little one is all piss and vinegar. She cracks me up, although I truly understand she hates me and only likes me when she knows she's going to get something she wants... like going outside to run around when everyone else is busy or maybe a chip or a cookie.
I'm adult legs. I help her get higher and get around faster. Period.
She tolerates me, but she's so dang impish, you can't help but want to be around her.
She's trying desperately to talk and fortunately, Mo has some idea of what she's saying. The rest of us just stare at each other.
She is yummy.
And I know this is not politically correct, but she got a LOL Elmo for Christmas. I have renamed it 'Grand Mal Elmo'. The dang thing looks like it's seizing...
