Another thing about us:

We are absolute freaks for the tv show Avatar, the last Airbender. We don't just love it. We don't just watch it. We live it. We breathe it. We soak it into our pores. Literally.
You may be aware, that we haven't had any television channels for eight years. We still don't, so we get our Avatar fix on the computer. We have every episode. A new episode is quite an event in our house. Tuesday night,we were huddled around the monitor, and the excitement was palpable. As the intro began, we hear this little guy chiming in on about every third word: 'years ago...Aang...Airbender...save the world...'. Watching it together is so fun. There are squeals, gasps, and the grabbing and shaking of shoulders in intense moments. And there are many intense moments! At different times, my little boys have been convinced of their own 'bending' abilities. #3 walked around for a week blindfolded, declaring himself a 'vibration bender'. My floor has been splattered with water during their waterbending phase, but thankfully it was summer and the bulk of the action took place outside. I have favorite episodes that make me chuckle to myself every time I think of them. There are action-packed ones that left us breathless, and clever ones I still can't believe. (A haiku contest? Who does that?) Anyway, if you're hankering for a cozy night all snuggled up on the couch, eating popcorn and being entertained, Avatar's a pretty safe bet.

I can say I have never heard of Avatar! Maybe we should ch-ch-check it out! If your boys love it mine probably will too! (After all your boy #4 is one of my boy #1's FAVS!!) Nope...for now I'm 100% stuck with Disney's CARS, daily, sometimes double daily. I love your costume work. You've got quite the talent for that. I'll never forget Ammon and all those arms!!!
