We could have bought several DVDs for the same price.

We were supposed to take L to a movie last weekend for her birthday but the weather didn't cooperate. We had some unexpected free time this weekend so we finally made it to the theatre tonight. L had her heart set on seeing The Haunted Mansion but I was worried that it would be too scary for J. And, to be honest, I wasn't all that interested in seeing it myself. So Ice took the girls to see ghosts, spiders (“There were lots of spiders, Mom!”), and other creepy things, while J and I saw Elf.

There was a single kissing scene in our movie. J wasn't looking at the screen when it started (he was getting popcorn or having a drink or something) and when he looked up and saw what was happening, he said (rather loudly), “Ewww!!”. The teenaged girls in front of us thought that was hilarious.

Everyone had a good time. If it wasn't so damn expensive, we'd do it more often.
