October and off

Yes, we're off! Off to a campfire with hot cider, hot chocolate, hot anything. Wow, after last weekend's 88 degree temps, this weekend of 56 has been the harbinger of fall.

Yesterday we went to a fantastic pumpkin farm full of fun things for Ashley to do, and for the rest of the family to reminisce about. You'll see the photos in the "badge" and can click to the Flickr account.

But tonight is for small groups at church, just sitting around and singing and praying together. And trying to keep the chill away by sipping that good hot stuff.

If you're in the Chicago area, don't forget that the 22nd is Mister Dad's birthday - our annual sloppy joe festival! Just let me know if we need to save a slice of Portillo's chocolate cake for you.

Identity Supreme is the Ultimatum

Just got back from the movies. We saw The Bourne Ultimatum. I must admit that I was shaking through some of it. I guess that's what happens when you're clenching the majority of your major muscles!

But then, it could have been the Diet Coke and popcorn for dinner that we always have when we do the movie thing over the dinner hour.

Did you like the camera technique in TBU? I know it was supposed to give the "feel" of action, but it began to feel more like a lazy cameraman or director. But all in all, the story and action are riveting.
