My life is ENCHANTED

On our way home from Mum and Dad's last night we dropped into the video store. We got Jane Austen Book Club, Michael Clayton, National Treasure 2 and Enchanted. Den and I try and make Saturday night family movie night and no guesses as to which movie we HAD to watch last night (and already screening a second time today). Katie is besotted with it and even Hughie thinks it a good movie, Den huffed and puffed through it, but anything for his girl. As we all snuggled on the couch under the blankey, I made mention that I would miss these nights in years to come - my little family all togther, squished and cuddling on the same couch. Hugh wanted to know why. I told him in years to come he and his sister would be out on Saturday nights and I would be here waiting and worrying. "I will never leave you Mum" says Hugh .... *sigh* "Yeah....yeah you will Bub .... and that's okay".

Sounds like a lovely family evening! I have the movie Enchanted here but we haven't watched it yet... might have to pull it out! Hugh is such a sweetie - wouldn't it be nice if they didn't leave us!

funny you should post this at a time when I'm over here in jersey trying to keep my boy home. since school's been out he's had 4 sleepovers, 4 graduation parties and a night at the movies with his friends. yesterday he wanted to go to the shore with a friend (overnight again) i felt bad, but i forced him to stay home. he's just been gone too much. take it while you can get it!

Helen we've been doing the same on Saturday night. "Family movie" night, well sort of kind of, lol...We watched National Treasure 2 and Fools Gold...Michael played video games...But time for Fred and I to watch some movies together. But not snuggled on the couch, which sounds good!! LOL...Glad y'all had some quality family time and that Den was a good Dad and put up with Katie's movie, lol...better than Fred would have been!! Sigh to Hugh, he is so sweet but yes in due time he will be gone on Saturday nights with his friends!!

Ohh...Enchanted! I've seen it listed on pay-per-view and I wondered about it. I'll have to get it for sure now to get a break from our recent Sponge Bob infatuation. :) Love the idea of family movie night!

Very sweet!!!! I do believe that Hugh will never leave you...you two share an incredible bond. Now, Katie? Well, that might be a different story all together! LOL!!!! Kudos to Den for sitting through Enchanted...I couldn't even do that. I did try, though.
