"Two little mice fell in a bucket of cream..

June 13, 2012

...The first mice quickly gave up and drowned. The second mouse, wouldn't quit. He struggled so hard that eventually he churned that cream into butter and crawled out."

All of my siblings and I spent this past weekend at a "cabin" in Huntsville. We played outside, ate a lot of food, painted each other's nails - girls only, obvi - and watched movies. The first movie we watched was Catch Me If You Can. and I think it changed my life. 

I don't know how I'd never seen it. Honestly, I never really knew the storyline at all. But my siblings all said good things about it, so I read the back of the case and decided it sounded cool. and it was. and I think it changed my life.

I'm not sure what it was. Maybe the fact that it's a true story. Maybe the fact that Leo is a total hunk throughout the whole thing. Maybe the fact that Tom Hanks doesn't have anything to do with bad movies ever. Maybe it's everything combined. It was seriously the most interesting movie I've seen in a long time. I want to watch it over and over. I made everyone watch a ton of the behind-the-scenes stuff while we were up at the cabin. I'm going to find Frank Abagnale's autobiography and just take it and read it and read the crap out of it. and I think it'll change my life. 

So I want you to watch it. If you want to, and you want me to watch it with you, I will.

Erin, I love you. I also LOVE the two movies you most recently posted about. True, Tom Hanks doesn't do bad movies, and Leo is totally gorgeous ;)

Anyway, just wanted you to know I read what you write and love it. And it makes me miss you and love you all the more.

Glad you had a great time with the fam!

This happened to me too! I saw it for the first time on TV a few years ago and couldn't believe I had never heard of it.

Love your blog :)

You are welcome for the unbelievable collage. P.S. Frank Abagnale Jr. look-alike was at our ward today. We tried to sneak a pic but we aren't that tricky.
