Some Enchanted Evening

Yesterday, I took Abby to see, "Enchanted" with her preschool buddies dressed-up in full princess attire. When we got there, the kids were so excited they just ran around in circles squealing until everyone else arrived. It was hilarious. The movie was surprisingly good with many nods to previous "princess" movies but I just could not get past McDreamy's crazy hair! The girls were obsessed with Giselle's crazy cartoon hands but Abby's favourite part when I asked her was this little obscure part at the beginning (cartoon mode) when this troll is trying to eat the heroine. It's just soooooo her.

When we got home, and our little darling was put down for the night, I watched another lavish Disney musical... "High School Musical" to be exact. I've been dying to see what the buzz is all about. It was really fun first of all... cheesy and squeaky clean but the biggest downside was the casting of Gabrielle, the main chick. She has this fake baby voice, she's a terrible actor and worst of all... Oh My Nasal Voice! That really was the worst part, but it did not TOTALLY ruin it for me. Paul LOVED the choreographed singing and dancing basketball practice routine (I hope everyone picked up A BIT of sarcasm there). I won't be buying the soundtrack, but I think the movie itself is too fun to pass up!

I am totally going to have to watch that movie now. We loved going to Enchanted with you, I also hated his hair. There were two times where it looked nice and he must've fixed it himself before the stylist had a chance to notice.

If you go to the soundtrack on itunes you can hear James Marsden singing 'thats amore' or whatever. So awesome.

I saw a preview of Enchanted when we went to see Dan in Real Life (another great movie that I loved) and I really want to see it. Also we saw the newest princess in the holiday parade at Disneyland and Darcy liked her.

Yep, you've got all of us wanting to go see it now. That would be a really fun holiday thing to do. Love looking at all your cute pics. Sounds like you are doing great!
