What Can $50 Buy?

For $50, Pete's work buddy bought his World of Warcraft characters and all their stuff. (Pete, are you ever gonna blog about that?)

And because we were all sorts of thrifty, we immediately went out and blew it all! But this is what it got for us:

Three Happy Meals from McDonald's, and two adult meals at Bajio's (YUM!)... to the movie theater to see Bolt which was...okay. It was showing at the cheapos. The two youngest slept the whole time, Pete even dozed off, and the two older boys were all "Can we go yet?" Needless to say, it's probably not a buyer. But still kind of cute. And we also got...

...the new album by The Fray. Pete loves them, and I like most of their stuff.

We also rented Fireproof, which I really liked. It's a Christian film starring Kirk Cameron (Mike Seaver!). It's about a couple that are on the verge of divorce. I think it's really universal, because they fought about chores, and money, and addictions, and proper work relationships, and how to spend spare time. It talks about "never leave your partner behind", and loving someone no matter what. I just realized I've seen a lot of movies lately. Hmm.

Yep, a good (expensive) weekend.

Wow, that's pretty impressive for a whole family's worth of fun for only $50. You go girl!

Oh my GOSH. Pete gave up his characters??? Is he going to take up WoW again when his tests are done? Will he have to start over?

I'm glad you had fun together as a family! Even if Bolt sucked. My mom just recommended Fireproof. She said it reminded her of an LDS made movie LOL. Would you agree? I haven't seen it yet.

Try out Madagascar2. Way funny and my kids loved it. We haven't seen Bolt and it looks like we can skip that one. Erin is just waiting for Tuesday when HSM3 gets released. We'll Red Box it for sure, and I think Suz is buying it. Yea for borrowing movies!
