We showed up at their house with a cake and threatened to feed the entire cake to the kids and then run away if they didn't take some time to themselves. They left. :-)

The movie was interesting to me mostly because it is based on a true story. I don't recommend the Oroville theater though. It was very dirty, and it's even more expensive than the Chico theater.

Week 3: December 17 - December 23, 2007

We went to dinner at Carl's Jr. (I know, I know -- that's not romantic at all.) Then we came home, talked, and read for a while. It was so relaxing!

Week 2: December 10 - December 16, 2007

Like last week, we went out Tuesday for dinner and a movie. We ate at La Salsa and saw Awake. Did you know that a certain percentage of people who are anesthetized for surgery can't move but still feel everything that's happening? This movie runs with that concept.

Week 1: December 3 - 9, 2007

We went to dinner at La Salsa, a local Mexican restaurant. We followed that up with a trip to the tehater to see Dan in Real Life, which was very funny.
