Julia AND He's one year old!

I've been sick on the couch since Sunday with a flu-like bug. Feeling much better tonight, but still need a little couch time. I re-watched "Julie and Julia" tonight and loved it all over again. The movie is such an inspiration: Julia's life and Julie's life. If you haven't seen it, I think you should watch it very soon. However, after watching the movie this time, I googled the author and found her blog, as well as a few other blogs belonging to her. I have decided that if we knew each other in person, we probably wouldn't like each other very much. :o( But I still love her movie and appreciate that she brought us the story of Julia Child.

Now for the most exciting news.... this little guy turns ONE tomorrow! What a special year it has been for all of us. Avery is the sweetest little boy, with a great sense of humor already. He loves to make us laugh! I love this child: Happy Birthday Sweet Baby Boy!

Ha ha... love that picture everytime I see it...he will probably hate it when he's older.. but maybe not...love him!!

Don't know about Julia? She never appealed to me on her cooking shows. Maybe I do need to see the movie.

Glad you are feeling better!

It was a great movie, I read the book first and I agree she (Julie, not Julia) doesn't come across as someone you'd want to be pals with. A little whiny and self-absorbed. But a pretty good writer.

I hope you are feeling better! That picture is bound to make any grandma feel like a million dollars! Happy Birthday Avery! Can't believe its already been a year.

I haven't seen Julia yet, but will put in on my list.

I do love that movie. I never thought of looking up the woman who Amy Adams played.

Oh Penny!!!! What a cute picture of Avery! Looks like he is enjoying it to the max! So happy! :) Just gave me a big smile! HAPPY BIRTHDAY AVERY!

I LOVED that movie too! But it could be because I took a night off from my kids & my sisters & mom went to a FAB resteraunt & then an outdoor screening on a perfect summer night in a beautiful park. I never wanted that night to end! thanks for bringing up those warm memeories tonight! Gives me hope that warm weather will be here agin...someday :)
