A-L-V-I-N ! ! !

We met the kids and grand kids at the movies today. You guessed it, we went to see Alvin and the Chipmunks. With the price of concessions these days, Nana and I stopped at Walgreens on the way and picked up snacks for everyone. It still cost us $33.00 in drinks and popcorn even with the smuggled supplements. The theatre is one of those stadium seating designs and it was pretty full for the 3:00 p.m. show. We sat on the very back row. Actually these are not bad seats because the aisle is wider and there is no one behind you to prevent you from leaning back in your seat.
The movie was pretty good. It tells us how Dave and the Chipmunks met and the origin of the "Chipmunk Song". It's a little long in places, but over all it was a good time. I did see trailers for movies I'd rather see that will be coming in the next few months. "The Water Horse" will be here in March. It comes from the people that brought us "The Chronicles of Narnia". Next summer DreamWorks will bring us "Kung Fu Panda." This looks like a huge hit. And yes, I like annimated films.

That's excellent, I'll have to take my boys to see it. Of course, there are some of us who had the original record...translucent red vinyl it was, as I recall. My dad was a big fan.

Oh, and great blog!
