We borrowed the Nightmare Before Christmas from the library in anticipation of it's re release in theaters. We wanted to take the boy but wasn't sure if he'd think it was too scary. A home trial was in order. He absolutely loves it and has been asking to watch the monsters. Yesterday we were out looking at Halloween stuff and came across some spooky decorations, I asked L if he wanted to "go down the scary aisle?" He replied, "That's not scary. They're just monsters." Since Halloween is my favorite holiday, I'm obviously a proud mother right now. I loved seeing the snow yesterday! Granted, I'm in no hurry to rush in winter, since fall is my favorite season. But I really do love a good storm! I even got to go out with Emily and chat and eat rice pudding. It was the perfect pick me up I needed to pull me out of my funk.
