  • While visiting my sister and brother-in-law over the holidays, we watched Despicable Me in the morning while in our PJs. Seriously it was so cute! Steve Carrell was the most loved villian. He plays Gru, a criminal mastermind who uses a trio of orphan girls as pawns for a grand scheme but he finds himself profoundly changed by the growing love between them.

    Even funnier are the adult elements that kids won't even pick up on like the reference to the evil bank "formerly Lehman Brothers". LOL

  • Not but a week after our Washington white Christmas we headed over to Reno to visit my family. Our trip to Reno turned out to be a blizzard day too! I'm so tired of the snow. I'm such a cold baby.

    The branches were so heavy from snow.

  • When we were in Reno, we took my dad to see True Grit. Most of you know the story of the original John Wayne movie, but this time the movie is told more from the perspective of the 14 year old Mattie Ross. Mattie was played by Hailee Steinfeld and she did an amazing job. I really loved her performance! The cast was filled with Academy Award winners/nominees: Jeff Bridges, Matt Damon, and Josh Brolin.

    It's not at all like the original, which is probably a good thing as it's hard to compete with John Wayne. It was a good variation on a classic!

  • On our return drive home from Washington, it was a blizzard. We were in 4WD for over 10 hours, only to then hit heavy rain at Redding.

    As you can see, you can almost not see.

  • These are iPhone panning pics again as we were driving, but I sure love the look of this winter setting.

  • And our 2nd big rig that we saw turned over. It almost became a new game: Find as many big rigs turned over as you can!

  • But there was light at the end of the white tunnel. Or so we thought. The nice weather lasted about an hour before the heavy rain started. I can say that 14+ hours in the car, 10+ of them being 4WD was a bit nerve wracking! We were so glad to be home.

  • Lili and Indiana (or Indy) are best friends. It was the cutest thing ever to see a dog and cat play together, sleep together and just be together.

  • Every time we turned around the two of them weren't far away from each other.

  • See what I mean?! Seriously, they are the best of friends and even share toys (see the red monkey below). They would play tug of war together with it!
