Well, me and the two grandson's Joel and Andrew went to the late night showing of
"The Dark Knight". . . Wow! It is a great movie. Heath Ledger is fantastic as The Joker, I didn't think anyone could out do Jack Nicholson, but Ledger did. . . too bad he won't be here to accept the Academy Award! I am sure he will receive it. . . The grandson's really liked the movie. We watched the Batman movie with Jack Nicholson before we went to the movie. Then we came back to my house and watched Batman movies. It was a late night. . Grandma is getting too old for the late night scene, but those grandson's love to watch movies with me. And I cherish the moments, because I know they last for only a short time. Children grow up way too fast. I hope Joel and Andrew will always like having sleepovers and movie nights with Grandma. In my heart they will always be my "little grandson's". I have had a lot going on in the last week. Lots of visits from friends and family. Saturday night I went to dinner with an old working partner. It was good to see Janis. Sunday of course was Church. Our ward is going to be split. It is huge. Lots of young families with crying babies and rowdy children! I don't know what the deal is now days. When I was a young mommy I took my children out of Sacrament meeting if they were crying or being noisy, but the mother's now days don't do that. It may be our LDS culture. We love children, and maybe the parents think the rest of us love hearing their screaming children. I couldn't hear a thing. I think it is very rude to let a child to disrupt a sacrament meeting. Too bad they don't have a ward for us older folks who really want to come to our meetings and have it quiet. . . . So, I hope we are divided and we get a "old" ward.
The Pioneer holiday is coming up this Thursday, and I will be writing a blog in honor of my ancestors. I am so blessed to be a 7th generation Latter-day Saint. All of my family lines came across the plains to the Salt Lake Valley. One great-great-great grandmother was in the Martin Handcart Company. I fall to my knees in gratitude for their sacrifice and that I descend from such nobleness. I am also looking for a day off. Watch for more ramblings and writing. KL
