my new favourite movie

is “Up”.

Mattias got it in his Easter basket. I had never seen it before this weekend.

I watched it 2 times on Sunday.

I bawled in the beginning.

I laughed so hard at so many parts. It was written brilliantly, and the dogs’ dialogue totally cracks me up.

The Alpha Dog (Pepsi) is not happy that Max is laughing at her.

Max is trying to “high-5” the Alpha Dog.

Pepsi is getting her Cone of Shame taken off on Friday.

What’s your favourite “kid” movie?

I love the name... cone of shame. Too funny. I bet Pepsi will be glad to have it off!

Favorite kid movie? Hmm... that's a tough one... I've seen so many recently. I think Flushed Away is very cute... :-)

We bought UP as well -- part of a Disney club, but haven't watched it yet.

I kept meaning to tell you that we had to do the cone of shame - on a CAT last summer. UGH! Casey, our newest calico that arrived last May had her front claws removed AND was fixed. She was the worst patient ever. Picked at the claws and then bit off the external stitches on her tummy. She ended up getting a big pink bandage on the paw and surgical glue on the stomach ALONG with the cone of shame. We called her cone-head and coney balogna for weeks. You'll be glad when it's done (as will she) but be thankful you didn't have to deal with the issues!!

I'm glad I'm not the only one who bawled like a big baby during the beginnin of Up...well, and at the end too. So touching...great movie.

Have you seen How to Train a Dragon? loved it too! Just saw it last weekend.

Both of your dogs are adorable.

Ryan got the movie from Netflix last fall. I was crying in the first 5-10 minutes!! I almost decided to leave, but I'm glad I didn't. I loved the movie. James got his own copy for Christmas. So now anytime I want to cry, I can go watch it! : )

St. Petersburg

Saint Petersburg: Sankt-Peterburg, Russian pronunciation: is a city and a federal subject of Russia located on the Neva River at the head of the Gulf of Finland on the Baltic Sea. The city's other names were Petrograd (1914–1924) and Leningrad (1924–1991). Founded by Tsar Peter I of Russia on 27 May, 1703, it was the capital of the Russian Empire for more than two hundred years (1713–1728, 1732–1918). Saint Petersburg is home to more than two hundred museums, many of them hosted in historic buildings. The largest of the museums is the Hermitage Museum, featuring interiors of the former imperial residence and a vast collection of art. Celebrating the 300th anniversary of its foundation, Saint Petersburg was selected as the main motif in a recent Finnish commemorative coin, the €10 Mannerheim and Saint Petersburg commemorative coin, minted in 2003. The reverse of the coin features a view of Saint Petersburg, with the Peter and Paul Fortress and its three turrets. In the coin the words "St. Petersburg 1703-2003" can be seen.
