All together again

Here's some of what's been happening:
  • After 5 days in Ireland, a brief weekend stopover and 5 days in Minnesota, my husband is back!
  • On Friday, the kids and I went to see How to Train Your Dragon at the $1.25 theater. We liked it a whole bunch, and C is planning to take her dad to see it again. I didn't like the way the vikings were drawn, the two-dimensional father-son relationship, or the big monster, but I loved the scenery (lovely forest and coastal landscape), the viking village, the hero's time in dragon-killing school, the dragons in general, and the hero's pet dragon, which is both cute and menacing. The animators did a super job giving the hero's dragon believable wild animal body language, and the scenes in which the boy and the dragon train each other are very good.
  • On Saturday, C and I went to a birthday party across the street. There were 13 children, and we had a very full schedule of musical chairs, scavenger hunt, lime sherbet punch, toenail painting, cupcake decorating, and present opening.
  • Saturday night, D was asking how seedless grapes reproduce. Had to look that one up. Answer--cuttings.
