El Orfanato

Our landlord, Medea, recommended a movie to us a while back. Her enthusiasm for the movie caused us to really want to see it.
So we did.

She told us it is called "the Orphanage" and I remember her mentioning something about subtitles... Little did I know there wasn't a word of English in this movie! It is entirely in Spanish - hence it's title.

This movie was so good! It was weird that a genuinely scary movie could also have such a great story (Whitney cried at the end).
It was creepy, is was funny, it was a Spanish lesson... all the things I could ever want in a movie. There aren't many movies that I would watch again right after seeing it the first time, but this one I would. Let us know who's in and we'll have a private screening at the McWhorter cottage (you bring the bagel bites).

random things

I know we haven't blogged in quite a while so this is going to be a random post. We had a pretty fun January '09. The Hoehne's posted a couple of those events. We've seen a lot of good movies, we had a fun Super Bowl Sunday, and my baby sister is no longer a teen. And recently Jon and I decided it's more fun when we cook together, so here are a couple of things we made. We're ameatures...

Pizza...Jon's favorite.

Chicken Parmesan

And we have been watching these two princesses once a week.

Our Home

For those of you who have yet to visit our home, we wanted to post a picture for you to see. We are proud of our little cottage (although we only rent it).
Here it is.
