Two short items to get your weekend off to a great start:
If you're looking for some family fun this weekend, go see The Muppets. I took my 6-year-old yesterday and she loved it, although I think what she really loved was seeing me grin from ear to ear and occasionally giggle out loud. It really took me back and made me a little nostalgic for those days when television programming like The Muppet Show was out there for families to enjoy together. A really fun movie for kids of all ages and kids at heart.
If you're too busy Christmas shopping to go out to the movies, here's just what you need. The Anchoress has posted a list of Christmas book and gift suggestions for just about every type of person on your list. (And I'm not just saying that because one of my books made the list.) You can check it out by clicking HERE.
So what are you waiting for? Hop online, order your gifts, and then grab the kids and head to the movies.
