This morning's service was great from start to finish, as you can see from some of the pictures here that Mommy took. She's been the photographer for us for some time, capturing moments during the service. Above, you can see the worship portion of the service, and here below you can see our actors having fun with a skit that was all about Sadness.
It was a morning completely dedicated to the character of Sadness, and it was a whole lot of fun. This has been a really great series, one that's just flying by already - we've only got one emotion left, and that's Fear next week. We'll have some fun with that one.
After church, we met with Ye-Ye and Nana, and Aunt Shain and the cousins as well for a trip to the movie theater. We haven't seen a movie since "Star Wars," and we actually haven't been to this theater in probably a year or so. What movie did we see?
"Kung Fu Panda 3" was a decent flick, although not as good as the previous two. Still, the previous two were amazingly awesome, so a step down from that isn't all that bad. With Chinese New Year approaching, this was a fun thing to do together as a family, filling up a good section of a row, and devouring a whole lot of popcorn. Aunt Shain had some gift cards, so she took care of the snacks, and everyone sat back for a good time at the movies. Nana seems to be doing better after her recent shoulder surgery, and everyone enjoyed the movie.
Of course, "Kung Fu Panda" is a big deal to us personally. It was the last movie we saw before heading out to China eight years ago, and the theme music was right there in our heads as we were traveling to China to meet Madison for the first time. A few years later, we all saw part two together, when Madison was a little older. And here we were for part three. I'm not sure if they're making another part after this, but it's been a great run with great characters and of course a whole lot of China in it.
So one week away, we have the new Chinese New Year. It's the Year of the Monkey, which is a big deal. Mommy was born in the Year of the Monkey, so we'll have to do something special. Maybe go to the zoo or something!
