The End of a Decade

If Dixie can blog about Twilight, then I can add my two cents on some good films. As anyone who knows us realizes, we love, love, love movies. Now that the decade is coming to a close, here are, in my opinion, the highlights:

10. The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford

9. Big Fish

8. Garden State

7. Batman Begins

6. The Prestige

5. The Lord of the Rings Trilogy

4. Juno

3. Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl

2. Donnie Darko

1. The Dark Knight

Smile for the Camera

Unfortunately, none of these pictures are current. I promise to get some new ones up soon. Until then...

Alex's baby blessing.

I found Ben and Alex napping on the floor together one afternoon.

Grandma Cindy (or Nana, we aren't sure yet).

Gotta have that naked baby picture. His little bum is so darn cute.

Grandpa Larry, Ben and Alex.

Another acceptance

The University at Buffalo just accepted me and offered a $5000 scholarship. I'm now 3 for 3, with 5 left. Let the decision process begin!

Very Good News

As many of you know Ben applied to law schools this fall and we are eagerly waiting to hear from them. This week we got acceptance letters to our two safety schools, Stetson Law- in Tampa, FL and Franklin Pierce Law School in Concord, New Hampshire. Stetson's acceptance letter came with a 10,000$ scholarship offer and just today Ben got another scholarship offer from Franklin Pierce - the Dean's scholarship, for 28,000$ a year! We are still waiting to hear back from University of North Carolina, Penn State, Wake Forest (NC), South Carolina U, Quinnipiac (CT), and Buffalo State. Am I married to a smarty or what?!
