its all quite WONDER FILLED!


We went to see Alice in Wonderland last night at the IMAX ! it was soo awesome! I feel bad for anyone who goes to see this and fails to realize the amazing talent and creativity that went into making it. It was really so good, that I need to go back to see it again. the 3 d effects were soo very cool, and johnny depp was so very johnny depp! I just loved it. YOu NEED to go out and see it and if you can, see it an an imax theatre, its like being right there!
Jenny, (be cheery) and her sister Missy met us there. We got there a little over an hour before it started. We got our tickets on line which was a good thing, because the shows were all sold out. And.. we were first in line! perfect, when they let us in, Jenny and I ran to the theatre so we could be sure to get the center of the back row! Jenny got there first.. that girl can move.. I lost her and didnt know where I was going.. the others took the elevator! some guy ran by me and I followed him.. cause I really didnt know where I was going! And.. we got the exact seats we wanted.. Thanks to Jenny!


there were 7 if us, my daughters, jen and beth and my sons girlfriend, Vanessa and another friend of ours Katie all went out to dinner first at Applebees, then we met jenny and Missy at the theater.

Crazy daughter Bethany brought her camera, I was glad, because I took everything, including my camera out of my purse so I could smuggle in popcorn! We made 6 batches of popcorn to take with us, though Jennifer and I ate one bag before we picked up the other girls! And not only that, but I had made a batch around 11:00 am which I ended up spilling on the floor in my craft room, while I was trying to clean up the tea I had just spilled! so that would be 7 batches of popcorn made yesterday! there is still a bag left though that Im taking to work with me today.

Anyways, we had a good time and you should all go see it!

In other news, I went and did a little shopping with my other sons girlfriend on saturday and found this gorgeous colored wool at Country Treasures in Brockport. I bought what you see her and more!
Then I stayed up late saturday night and got up early yesterday morning so I could play! didnt get anything finished, but got a few things started! Just like a kid with a new toy.. You dont want to go to sleep, cause you love it so much and you cant wait to get up to play with it again! except back then, it was usually something you could take to bed with you to sleep with!

This is what I've been sleeping with though.. Arent they seriously amazingly adorable?!!! Ive gotten updates on all the kittens that went to their new homes and they are all doing great! I saw my son Tonys kitten yesterday, and she seems to be happy in her new home. Its easier to give them away when you know who has them will love and spoil them and take good care of them!

Well, unfortunetely I have to go to work.. so off I go! will be blog hopping tonight! see you then! hugs and happy monday!

Hi Viv,

It's been a while since I commented, as I've been busy crafting, but I just had to say you have one of the most beautiful smiles I've seen in quite some time. Your daughters are beautiful, too, and they have the same smile.

That wool you got....wow, what gorgeous colors! I wish there were more fabric stores like their used to be in the old days. Now all we have is JoAnne's, Hobby Lobby and some of the Walmarts, but selections are nowhere near what they used to be. Thanks for sharing your adventure, and I'll have to see if my husband will take me to see Alice in Wonderland.

Hugs,
Meri

backmiddle row -- yikes! That's my worst nightmare seat :) I can't see that far. I have to be near the front -- not front row, maybe row 5? But the movie was simply frabjous!(a blend of fair, fabulous and joyous!)

Lori said...

i made the mistake of showing those kitties to my oldest son...he wants me to drive to new york and get us one...LOL...they sure are sweet...and i would be tempted if i hadn't spent hours today, trying to get cat hair off of my upholstery...

Zan Asha said...

One thing I really love about you Viv is that you seem to work hard and love to play. I'm the same way. I can hardly wait for my weekend which is Sun and Mon. By Saturday morning I'm already celebrating the fun of a weekend. Somehow I manage to shut out work and just play. Just got back from the Palmer Wirf antique show in Portland...so fun. Now...I have to make my bunny project, yes, indeed!

Mary Isabella and Kiley too! said...
