Emmy Likes Fantasy Movies

wow, it's been a while since i posted last. nothing really exciting has happened lately. we had a couple of yard sales. made some money to go to utah with. haven't gone yet. we'll go in a couple of weeks. my mom is gonna go with me and the kids. it'll make the trip easier.

you know those "lord of the rings" movies? emmy loves them. she wants to watch them all the time. i think the thing she likes best about them is gollum. she thinks he's a frog. we have the hobbit cartoons from back in the day and in those gollum kinda looks like a frog. i keep telling her that he's a man like the hobbits. of course hobbits aren't men, but she's three, so it's a little too complicated to explain to her. i enjoy the movies, which is why i was watching them. i really didn't think that the kids would like them so much. i mean, there are some scary images. ghosts, monsters, violence, but they don't find it scary. i guess they are like me in that way. i was raised on creepy and scary movies, so to me they are fine.

I have never watched any of those... i remember when mom was reading the hobbit to us. It was like torture for me to sit through that. I didn't understand what all the hoopla was. Also in 5th grade when we were assigned to read narnia & wrinkle in time, I thought I was going to die. I still don't enjoy the fantasy stuff. Never watched those movies either, lord of the rings, harry potter, etc. So, good for her if you can get her to like it now.

i don't understand how anybody could not like a wrinkle in time. greenolive had me read it once and tell her about it so that she could write her book report. of course i was too naïve to realize what she was doing. since then i've reread it several times.
