Little Orphan Ann-E

As the rest of the summer has been, last week was another busy one for us.  So many fun things to do, to document...too little time!  Don't be surprised if you see a rush of posts from me this the week as I try to document all of our summer memories.

To start off this week I need to record something very special our family has been enjoying the last couple of nights...meeting Anne, Matthew and Marilla and the ever-nosy Rachel Lynn.  That's right, Daddy surprised us one night and set-up a dinner picnic and put on "Anne of Green Gables".  This was a story and movie his mother shared with he and his brother when they were young and Mommy was introduced to it by my friend Bekah in college.  I love it!  Daddy and I try to watch it (and the preceding sequels) every Fall, but I'm glad he pulled it out now and we could share it with our children.

Miss Em is a typical 2-yr. old and doesn't really sit for too long, but she watched a good amount of it.  McGee on the other hand was enthralled, his eyes rarely left the screen.  Last night we took a break to go outside and have popsicles and he said, "When we're all done we get to go back and finish that movie because I love it!  I really, really love it!"

The first night (forgive the poor photo) - Matthew bringing Anne home the first time

Miss Em paying close attention (I just have to note her poor, poor knees, another new "boo-boo" from a fall outside)

Last night - just before Anne blurts out she found a dead mouse in the plum pudding sauce!  This sure made McGee giggle!


  1. SO cute!! That is one of my favorite movies of all time. I wish my boys would watch it too. I tried Pollyanna on them but they weren't too interested (yet) ;)

  2. I LOVE that whole series!! I just introduced Reagan and Skylar to it but Bailey wasn't all that interested yet :)

  3. I love it! And, I totally am going to netflix it for us. I've been waiting for the right time, but after seeing your post, I really want to get it for mine!

  4. Looks like we're in good company being fans of Anne. Melissa I sure hope you were able to get it and are enjoying it!
