Two posts in one day? It's a miracle! :)

We took Noah and his cousin, Luci to see Charlotte's Web yesterday.
Very sweet movie and I loved the way it was done.
Dakota Fanning is just a doll.
I couldn't help thinking, though, every time Charlotte spoke..."that's Julia Roberts." LOL It was just in my head the whole time.

I very much recommend this movie.
It was about 1 hour 45 minutes long and my 3-year old niece sat thru it and loved it.

If you have any fear of spiders at all, you may get the willies more than a few times. They show LOTS of close ups of Charlotte and she is ugly, hairy, and swings at the camera. I got the heebie jeebies a few times and I don't have arachnophobia. (much) I didn't see or hear any kids getting upset, though...ha.

Oh...and parents.... babies won't get this movie. It will go over their heads. I counted three couples with no other kids walking past me in the theater with ONLY a baby, to see this movie. And most of them cried and had to be taken out anyway because it was LOUD in the theater. Yes, it's rated G and I know you're excited...but wait a few years.

Love the banner!!!

Thnks for the review on the movie, I think I wait to rent it since I only have teen boys who would not be caught dead with me at the movies to see Charolette's Web, LOL!

and I agree about babies at the movies...

I SO want to see this movie. It's good to hear that you enjoyed it as much as Noah and his cousin. Did the goose sound like Oprah? I thoroughly enjoyed her "Charlotte's Web" show a few weeks ago - she had Dakota Fanning AND Julia Roberts on. It was fun to hear them talking about the behind the scenes stuff.

Love your new banner, and I adore the colors you selected. Very trendy and hip!

i hate that they sometimes play kids movies sooo freakin loud.... my dd went to see Happy Feet w/ her nanny and she really didn't like how loud it was... i want to see this one too. thanx for the review!

Funny, Jen. I've been thinking that the spider would bug me each time the commercial comes on. I'm sure that we'll take the babes to see it but I'm hoping for a good nap after the popcorn! (shhh!) Doug will love it! Hope your holidays continue to be great!
