Louise LaVoice

I got a text message from my brother in law Russ at 3:49 AM letting me know Debbie had gone into labor. I had stayed up till 2 AM watching a Korean Drama (we will save that for another post) so I almost got two hours of sleep.
When I got to Debbie's the midwives were there and Debbie was already in the portable tub. Soon we were joined by two of Debbie's friends one taking pictures and the other videoing.

I started this post almost a year ago and never finished I am not 100% why maybe because finding the words to describe the feelings was hard. Maybe because ever since google reader became nonexistent I have pretty much stopped reading blogs. But I still want to upload the photos here so here we go.

I did take a lot of pictures of the birth because Debbie's friends were there and Tiffany got some great shots, and because with Russ helping with the birth Debbie needed someone's hand to squeeze.
Everyone was so excited to meet Louise.
Here she is with Grandpa probably not even an hour old and holding her head up.
I got my turn too!

Later when the kids had gone and to Russ's parents and the house was quiet and Debbie, Russ, my mom and I were all trying to sleep after being up all night. Louise was asleep by me on the couch but I couldn't sleep I just stayed awake to look at her.

Out With The Old In With The New Part 7

Today I typed 2012 instead of 2014, I am not sure if it was just a typing error or if I am just that in denial that is twenty fourteen.
As the year was coming to a close I tried to think what my favorite movies of the year were in preparation for this post. I could only think of two off the top of my head, Austenland and Catching Fire but I told myself not to worry I was bound to think of more when I looked over the list of 2013 movies. Unfortunately nothing really changed after I wrote the list of movies I saw.

Big surprise here but Austenland was definitely my favorite you can pre-order the DVD here

Next was Catching Fire, I don't think I've watched Huger Games again but I would go see Catching Fire again. It has been years since I read Catching Fire but I think this is one of the best book to movie adaptions I have ever seen.

Also can there be a spin off movie that is just about Ceaser Flickerman, Stanley Tucci is the best.

Movies that I liked but didn't necessarily love were Saving Mr. Banks & The Host.

2014 seems to be a more promising year.

Christopher Nolan has a new movie coming out so how could it not, right! Interstellar

Wes Anderson has The Grand Budapest Hotel coming out as well

X-Men: Days of Future Past

Should I keep going? Do you guys want to watch trailers all day?


Monuments Men
