The kids were so excited to watch The Hobbit. They've been listening to a "book on tape" for a while now, and were eager to connect the spoken words to the visual effects of the screen. I popped some popcorn for them to enjoy with the show, and it was even on a school night! For that, their excitement doubled. Kennedy is lacking from the picture because she wasn't interested in watching the movie. I wasn't either, so we went downstairs and sewed together until the movie was done.
