Christmas in July?


Well, the truth is out! Last night, Jamie and I told Brandon about the true nature of Santa Claus. He took it pretty rough. We thought it would be easier for him coming from us than his classmates. Apparently, we were wrong. The poor kid questioned pretty much everything about Christmas. He's doing better today, but I was worried we were never going to get to bed last night. Hopefully, it will help him understand the true meaning of Christmas (crossing my fingers).

Why so serious?

Jamie and I saw The Dark Knight last night. Excellent, excellent movie! I thought it was better than Batman Begins and that was a great flick. Heath Ledger was phenomenal, and haunting, as the Joker. I haven't seen Iron Man, so I can't compare it to that, but for me this blew Indiana Jones out of the water. Dad, if you haven't seen it by the time you come to Utah next month, I'll let you treat me to it.

It did deserve its PG-13 rating (not like Superman Returns - totally a PG movie with a PG-13 rating). It was very intense throughout and although there was little or no graphically portrayed violence (the Bourne movies were more violent than this), there were a few people getting shot at close range - but no blood- and other acts of implied harsh violence . Also, the tone of the movie is fairly dark. I would not recommend taking the kids. Brandon is disappointed that he can't see it, but those are the breaks.

Time Flies!

I didn't realize it's been a month since our last post. No, I'm not still bitter about the Lakers losing, and that's not the reason why it has taken so long to post another entry. It's just been busy, busy, busy with family in town, work, and just life in general. We got to see Kevin and his family this weekend. They were out for Kevin's friend's wedding and stayed the night at our house Friday night. We got some good Halo 2 action. Maybe at the family reunion next year, Matt and I can bring our X-boxes and we can have a Halo 2 tournament. Brush up on your skills, people!

Kevin's daughter Emma is much bigger now. Also, Kevin is not Catholic. The picture was taken in the hospital. >>>>

We also got to see Zeke and his family a couple of weeks ago, and Jamie's parents came into town for the 4th of July. That was good. This coming Saturday, we'll get to see Matt and Ami. I didn't realize how popular we are :)

Well, we just wanted to let everyone else know we are still alive and kickin'. In a couple of weeks, we might have an announcement to post, so stay tuned.
