Despicable Me

How's everyone doing today? 

We had a day off of school for a teacher workday and it was so much fun to hang out with the boys. We did a lot of snuggling followed by lots of playing.  We even managed to film a few short movies. Has anyone seen the movie 'Despicable Me'?  It is so adorable. I'll let Wikipedia summarize it for you because I am unable to succintly explain it.  I keep writing the whole story out. Oops :) "...a supervillian named Gru plans to use three orphan girls as pawns for a grand scheme, only to find that their innocent love is profoundly changing him." At the end of the movie everyone dances to the Bee Gee's You Should be Dancing and Gru busts out some old school dance moves- including putting his hands on his tush and shaking what his momma gave him :)  Nolan thinks it is hilarious!  Here is what has been transpiring around my house today...

Once again, sorry for my nasally, coughing voice- I am still trying to shake the plague :)  Hope this brightens your day {it sure did mine!!}


  1. Julie, that is so cute! It very much reminds me of my house, except I have two girls. :) The little one always wants to do what the big one is doing. We haven't seen Despicable Me yet, but I've heard some great things about it...must put that on our list. :)

    Thanks so much for joining in my "Bliss-at-Home" project today. I hope you'll stop by Serenity Now again soon. :)

  2. Hey Julie, your video was so cute my ds and I had a giggle. We havnt seen Despicable Me yet either I think we will have to hunt it down this weekend before the summer hollidays are over here in Aust.

  3. I found you through Serenity Now! I read your comment there and I truly understand. I am new to the whole blogging scene too! I think the premise of your blog for your hubby is so great! I actually came across your blog a few months ago and thought that then! What a legacy you are leaving for your boys and intimacy you are keeping in your family in an impossible situation! Beautiful!

  4. Julie, I'm so glad you stopped by my blog. I loved the blog sharing post that Amanda did yesterday. I found some new blogs, including this one, that I like, as a result.

    I look forward to following your adventures moving forward. Now, as far as "Despicable Me." We love that in our house and have watched it countless times. As you well know, there are kids movies that are made for adults too and those that aren't. This one definitely was enjoyable.


I LOVE Love love all your comments. They make me so happy. Thanks for taking the time to share your thoughts with me :)
