It's a Wonderful Life…

with the Mace family.

We Saw The Lego Movie!!

And it was epic!  That’s what the boys said, along with awesome and great and lots of other similar adjectives.  N and I enjoyed it as well, though the ending was a bit unexpected.  We saw it last Monday after we returned N’s rental car.  The boys were thrilled when they found out.  It was pretty empty too, not many people go in the middle of the day.  I believe this worked in our favor (and perhaps everyone else’s) because I think we laughed the most and probably the loudest.  There was so much in it, that we can’t wait to own it just to pause the movie to see everything in the background.  Lego sets were everywhere, some of them the expensive or hard to find ones.  Afterwards, N treated us to Cold Stone (YUM!) where we sat and talked about The Lego Movie and laughed some more.  I believe we are officially a geeky family:)  Seriously!  We’ve been looking forward to this movie since last year and I mean early last year.

Gav is sick, stuffy nose and fever.  The first real illness of the year.  I don’t count sniffles without a fever because around here they only last a few days.  So blessed to have a healthy family!  But Gav is a trooper, not letting it get him down.  I know it’s not serious if he still has all that energy.  The boys love being sick because they get juice, lots and lots of juice!  We aren’t a juice drinking family and it’s rare for us to have juice in the house.  For one, water is cheaper and far better for us.  And N and I aren’t big juice drinkers anyway.  Selfish?  Perhaps, but we are the shoppers so we kind of have a say and honestly it’s just not something we think about.  Just like when I go grocery shopping, I don’t seek out foods that I don’t like, even though N does.  I have to be reminded because it’s not very obvious to me to get those things.

B is getting new glasses.  His old ones kept breaking and we kept super gluing them back together.  They finally got to a point where that just wasn’t possible anymore.  He’s excited and I really liked the eye dr.  He was very passionate about the eyes and really should us some cool stuff.  Did you know you can see symptoms of diseases in the eyes before you ever notice them in the body?  Yep, you can.  We also got to see what eye cancer looks like in the picture that is taken of the eye.  I have the strangest knack for finding cutting edge eye dr.s .  This isn’t the first time, though it was my eye dr. in Va .He created a contact you where at night while sleeping and take out in the morning to have 20/20 vision during the day.  It had already been through the testing phase!  Incredible, right?!  I just love finding people who are passionate about what they do, it makes them better I think because they are always wanting to learn, which means they are always studying and keeping up with their chosen profession.  Besides, unfortunately it’s not often that someone loves what they do.  Inspiring!  Well all that to say, B gets new glasses which you will see in a video we are going to shoot within the next week.  He picked them out himself and he looks quite handsome.  He is growing up so fast.  B went through a growth spurt and is in the next size in pants (12) and almost there in tops (10/12).  I don’t want him to keep growing:(  But I am glad he is getting some height to him and won’t feel so short among his peers.  Though that won’t last long with everyone growing at different rates through the teen years.  I am excited for those!  B is such an amazing boy, so very caring and compassionate with those younger than him.  He has such patience too.  Though you don’t always see that when he is with Gav, when he does it’s really obvious.  I just love how he has grown more outward in showing affection.  He loves drawing/writing little love notes.  And we love receiving them:)  I really am excited to see the man he becomes.  But I am not in a hurry, time is free to slow down a little.

Well the boys are getting a little excited playing xbox.  Going to try to settle them down.  Hope all is well in your world.
