We saw the movie Billy Elliot the other night. It's a great movie and even if you don't particularly like ballet, you'll enjoy the movie.

We put up our Christmas lights yesterday. We didn't buy a big natural tree this year because we're putting up the lights so late and also because we're going to SD for five days. It just seemed like too much amount of money and effort to get a big natural for such a short period of time to enjoy it. Sarah finally ripped her tomato plants out of the ground yesterday. As usual, they produced tomatoes right up to the bitter end.
