Chicken Pox and movies...

I'm behind with my posts. 
I think you'll understand why...
Yep. The dreaded Pox! Chicken that is...

Poor little man has been so poorly. Believe it or not I took this photo before the spots got really bad. Big brother got it first and had no trouble. His spots are almost completely gone now. Lucas on the other hand is completely covered. Its like they all ganged up and said 'hey I know, lets all become one big painful spot!...and while we are at it, make sure we get right in the ears, on top of the eyes lids and on the *ahem* pee pee.' Lucas hasn't been able to sleep, eat and has been in my arms permanently. It's been a tough week but today he finally seems to be feeling better.

So I think I'll do a short post today about our recent (pre-chicken pox) movie night...

Which means a little of this...
    Alot of this...

   And way too much of this...
I was dropping heavy hints all day for the boys to choose 'How to Train your dragon' because lets face it, it's awesome! 
But they didn't go for it. Instead they choose this...
I wasn't convinced by the choice but it was actually pretty good.

    Isaac imposing the 'I'm not sharing get your own popcorn' rule...
    Lucas assured me not to worry it would be a happy ending. Which it was *phew*

It was no 'how to train your Dragon' but it was fun, colourful and the boys dig birds so they were hooked. Movie night score 7/10

Then a little wrestle before bed. You know, to wind them down ready for sleep....

Then, once the little angels are sleeping off their pizza bellies, it's time for our movie choice. This time around hubby complained we always go for my choices (um because I have awesome taste) so after huffing and puffing I 'let' him choose. He choose The Fighter...
I had heard it was really good but its about boxing so I wasn't sure it would it be my thing...

Turns out...

It was...

AMAZING!

    And not just because of a certain persons yummy body...

The acting by everyone was crazy good. Christian Bale may verbally abuse his staff from time to time but man that dude can act! So can Mr muscle Mark for that matter. Brilliant. 

Although Hubby seems to be under the illusion that this means he always chooses the movie. No chance...

Movie night score 10/10 Seriously good!

  4. Been wondering about you, but now I get it. Yikes! Poor little dude, that looks painful!
    I also think I'd be willing to travel all the way to England for a slice of that pizza. Seriously.

  9. New to your blog-- how sad is that!! I was wondering if they had the chicken pox vaccine? I was always curious if kids really could get a vaccine that would keep them from coming b/c then I see people having pox parties to get it and get it over with-- i'm so glad I don't remember having it when I was a kid but have a few scars as a reminder.. so sad when they are sick or feeling down but its the best cuddle time for mom!! :)
