What a great movie!!!!!
I have to back up though. I wanted to go to the first showing because I had lots of other things to get done, so I went to the 10:30 showing. I got there and there were no ticket lines open except this table off to the side. I went over and asked if I could get tickets and the lady tells me that a certain school PTA had reserved the first showing, but I was welcome to get tickets from them. Well the tickets were $10 a piece, but they included pop, popcorn and a poster and stickers. I wasn't planning on even buying popcorn because we were going out for lunch, but I didn't want to hang around for 1 hr for the next showing either.
I bought the tickets and we went in. I was a little irritated, but we were in and all was good.
At 10:30 the lights went completely on and a lady gets up and thanks everyone for coming out and that we were going to play some games! Oh boy, did I feel out of place! They were going to ask questions and whoever got them right got a free dvd. I told the girls NOT to raise their hands, because I felt like an intruder and this was for the other kids schools. They also told everyone that they had spies watching everyone and whoever was the quitest would win the grand prize.
We sat through the games and then she asked everyone if they wanted to know who the grand prize winner was-everyone cheers. Then all of a sudden this girl starts coming down our aisle.....I started to shrink in my seat and sure enough.... she picks up Arianna's arm!!!
Congratulations- you're the grand prize winner! Oh it was awkward- no one else knew anything was wrong, but I felt very wierd about it all.
They did tell me I was welcome to get tickets, so I guess it's all fine.
Here's what Arianna won:
Her very own stuffed Horton!
It was a very proud moment for me, because I instantly thought- Oh no- Halle's going to be sad....
Actually, Halle looked at Arianna and told her "Cool- Anna!"
And then much to my delight- Arianna looked at me and said- "I'll share it!"
Oh how my heart rejoiced!
I highly recommend this movie- it's so cute and very well done. The girls loved it!
If you look at the picture of Arianna- you might be able to tell from the picture that she is not feeling well.
Late this afternoon, she came down with the bug that Halle had on Thursday-Friday.
Hopefully she feels better soon I'm really hoping I don't get it. My dad is having surgery on Wednesday and I'm supposed to be there. I don't want to be sick!
Tune in Monday- I have an important topic that I would like your input on.
