"To Boldly Go" (and some pictures, mind you.)

So Holden saw his first movie today. This clip pretty much sums it up:

Trekkies Bash New Star Trek Film As 'Fun, Watchable'

Other than the blow-out he had with 30 minutes left of the movie that soaked through his onesie AND his Easter outfit; he did AWE-SOME! We saw it in IMAX and he was completely in awe of the moving pictures... I had to cover his ears a few times because it was so loud; but eventually he fell asleep and really seemed to enjoy himself (the part he was awake for, minus the blow-out of course.) Live long and prosper, you know?

Also, I promised pictures from the Bless-ed Blessing Day, eh? Well here's a couple, but that's what the link you just passed was/is for... cheeky, I know. Although I couldn't pass up a chance to post this little ditty below. Mr. Holden Mangum and Faye Cain say it all. Holden's exhausted and wondering why we keep making stupid faces at him -- trying to get him to smile. Faye's moving and shakin' with the best of them. Find it funny she's 6 weeks older and 2/3's his size?!?!

Highlights from the day:
  • Danny blesses Holden to "respect women" (and me, Huzzah!).
  • Holden's wearing the same outfit Danny was blessed in. As you may notice, it's unbuttoned...well, after five-plus hours in the get up, Muscle Man Mangum needed a respite form the constricting clothing to let his appendages "breathe"
  • Loads of family and friends -- tons of good food -- too many cookies (which btw, I ordered some sugar cookies and rolls from Granite Bakery. I asked for rattles and they came looking like bowling balls. Just an fyi in case you are going to a bowling part in the future...)
  • Holden was a trooper all day as we played "pass the baby"... by the time we put him down for a nap, it was like his whole countenance said "thank you for some alone time." (He totally takes after his dad.)
  • End of the day festivities -- of course -- ended with him having a blowout and it "decorating" my cream Ann Taylor brocade skirt and white button down shirt. But honestly, did I really think I could get away with wearing white?!?!?
(So I recognize I'm doing EXACTLY what TAMN from seriously so blessed just made fun of... Mom's talking about poop. Sorry bout that; but it is my reality and no one's forcing you to read my recount of Holden's pants.)

Additional pics below include Holden and Danny at Max (my nephew's) soccer game. I don't know why the hat is tilted sideways. But he's wearing his (Earth Day Everyday) "Let's Go Green" t-shirt!

love the blessing day ..cute, cute! You are brave to take Holden to the movies..I never dared with the twins but I guess we are talking twins here. Also, had to reply to your AWESOME post on my blog. YES, I agree...WALMART is the WORST! When I lived in Sandy...I even picketed against them putting in the new Super Walmart at the bottom of 94th there. Also, yes, they are putting every awesome small business out of business and trying to take over the world. THey must pay their employees crap because their employees are crap! Also, remember the law suit about the Walmart bike??? My brother represented the plaintiffs. Lesson learned: DO NOT buy your bikes at Walmart or your child might end up dead or at least brain dead! Anyway, thanks for agreeing with me...yay, at least I have you in my corner. Oh, And Sam's ....that's a whole other story...YUCK!!! At least Costco loves, respects and hires intelligent people and treats them awesome. They pay them incredibly well and they have incredible benefits. That's why it's almost impossible to even get hired on at Costco. So I relent now and again to buy T.P. in bulk at Costco. But that's it! I TOTALLY agree...just be a SMART shopper, there are plenty of ways to save money. Like I said I did a price comparisson and The WAL is not all that CHEAP. Plus, ALWAYS remember the golden RULE: you get what you pay for!

Okay, now that I've written a novel, love the pics of Holden...he is getting so big so fast. I think we need a girls reunion so we can all see each other's kids. I went out to Kathy's the other day it was so fun, I say let's do it!

Holden is seriously soooo cute! I love that Star Trek was his first movie. He's so cool. I think that Ratatouille was Brady's when he was that age (he hasn't seen a movie since).
