Seeing Stars

Last weekend we went to see A Christmas Carol at the El Capitan Theatre in Hollywood.
I had no idea how cool this little adventure would be.
I thought we were just going to watch a Disney movie at a fancy theatre.
Well to my amazement, we were smack dab in the middle of Hollywood's Walk of Fame.
(who woulda' thunk I was from around these parts of town)
We find a spot to park in an expensive little garage
and who's the first person we see when we step out onto the street.
None other then Mr. Snoop Doggy Dogg, himself!
Well I just had to pinch myself, I was so thrilled!
I tried to play it cool though...

After all that excitement, we proceeded to walk down the street
and would you guess who flew by us?
That's right- Batman.
He was kind enough to let us know, as he spread his wings wide open, that
he poses for tips.

Uh huh, that's right.
You wanna take a picture with Spidey in this super cool pose, you better pay up!
Bet ya' didn't know that Spiderman wears slippers when he walks the street...
That's so he doesn't leave any sticky spidey tracks.
This guy tried to buzz on past us, but The Boy wasn't havin' that!
He wouldn't let his Daddy step away either.
The Boy has told all his friends at school that he met Bumble Bee in Hollywood.
He comes home everyday to tell me that someone else wants to go with us.
We might just have to take a field trip there.
Michael Jackson was also posing at his star.

Dora The Explorer was backpackin'.

Cinderella and her prince were dancing in the streets.

Edward Cullen winked at The Teenager a couple times!
I know, these are the things you dream of!

Chucky from Child's Play was lunging at people with a knife as they walked past.
The Teenagers went running as fast as possible and The Boy was worried the whole way home that 'that little boy is going to get lost".

Elmo wanted to pose for a picture(for a tip of course)
but when we told him we didn't have a camera,
he gave us a lecture for being in Hollywood without a camera.
(Yes, I'm still without a camera!!)

And to top off our awesome adventure, the movie was in 3D.
I obviously have never seen the commercials because I had no idea!
I don't think anyone else had any idea how scary this movie would be for the kiddies either.
You've been warned!
Kids will cry.
But you WILL look cool!
Word to the wise-
If you're visiting Hollywood soon,
bring a camera
and bring some dolla' dolla' bills y'all!

My son would have loved that Transformer!

I'd have been freaked out over Edward Cullen.

Chucky would have scared me too.

Follow along through the fun and agony as we try to figure out how to raise two completely opposite teenagers- Teen 1, the fiesty yet inquisitive one, Teen 2 quiet but wise-cracking and our ball full of energy known as The Boy. It aint always pretty, but we’ll sure try to make the best of it!
These are the stories of our lives…
