I Dreamed a Dream

I hope you all enjoyed spending time 
with your loved ones at Christmas, 
and that your bellies are full of home-cooked goodness.

One of my family's traditions is that we always go and see a 
movie on Christmas day. 
After you've been cooped up in the house
opening gifts, eating three plates of food {and then dessert, too}
and watching basketball, you're ready to get out. 

This year we went to see Les Miserables (of course). 
I was so excited I didn't think I could wait any longer to go see it.
I haven't read the book, nor seen the play, which is very unlike me. 
To be quite honest, until the trailers came out I thought 
Susan Boyle made the song "I Dreamed a Dream" famous
when she was on Britain's Got Talent. 
Shameful, I know. 

I'm sure Emily is glad the movie is finally out 
because whenever the Les Mis trailer would come on tv
Samantha and I would sing the song in our best opera voice. 
I thought we were pretty good, but apparently others thought differently. 

Anyways, I hope you are able to see it too soon. 
And if movies aren't your thing, I'm sure there are plenty of after-Christmas sales
at the mall. (as if you didn't get your year's worth of shopping in the last three days.)

Enjoy the rest of your holiday!

Going to see a movie on Christmas day. That is an awesome tradition, plus I have heard nothing but great things about this movie.
