Bill Hader did such an awesome job imitating Daniel Day Lewis, seems like a good follow up to my last post...
I LOVE it when Amy Poehler is a boy! And if you haven't seen the preview for Tina Fey's new movie Baby Mama you MUST check it out... click here

There are so many things I loved about this years Oscars...
Kristin Chenoweth, isn't she awesome!? She is super hot and so talented. We saw her in Wicked in NYC a couple of years ago and she was incredible! I was so happy to see her perform last night.
Daniel Day Lewis, there was no beating this guy! His performance in There Will Be Blood could absolutely not be outdone. Sadly for Tommy Lee Jones, Johnny Depp and George Clooney, who were all in great movies, this had to be Lewis's year.
I am so glad that Juno got one award for their nominations. It was such an awesome movie and you have to love Ellen Page.
Once has been on my list for ages, but I haven't seen it yet. After seeing these two I will have to watch it right away!
People like this make the night for me!! I love John Stewart he is a great host, and really Steve Carrell can do no wrong...

Our poor little nephew Lincoln has had a hard couple of weeks! You can catch up on the details in his blog but long story short he had an ear infection and then what they thought were chicken-pox and it turns out he had an allergic reaction to the medicine for his infection. The pictures make me so sad! He is still trying to smile though, what a tough kid!!
My mom and sister came to visit over the long weekend. It was fun to have EVERYONE together!! We went to dinner and did A LOT of shopping! We had everyone over Sunday for dinner and games too. Anna dedicated a lot of her time mastering Guitar Hero, an important SKILL for young and old alike if you ask me! Monday we went up to the new Salomon Center in Ogden for lunch at the Pizza Factory (yummers!) and some miniature golf. It was a fun weekend, THANKS for coming down!

EXCEPT, while I am on the topic I feel it is necessary to pay homage to perhaps the greatest sitcom of all time Arrested Development, taken sadly in it's prime! For those of you who missed the short 3 season phenomenon I highly recommend you rent it and catch up, it was genius before it's time and is greatly missed... Take some time, get to know them http://www.bluthfamily.com/
Moving on... Regardless of my former ranting TV is not my life... entirely! This weekend we also went to the movies - haha I get that's not really different. We went with Ryan's family to 27 Dresses and it wasn't ALL bad. In fact there were about 20 enjoyable minutes in the 107 minute flick, that's almost 20%! Ok I am probably being a bit overboard, we had fun it was a good family time, it just wouldn't be my first pick ;-) BUT if you are looking for a great, albeit less family comfortable for viewing movie, JUNO is excellent!! If you are a Michael Cera fan (again Arrested Development, though not my favorite role for Jason Bateman) you will especially appreciate the humor of this movie. And if you are looking for something the WHOLE family SHOULD see it would have to be Dan in Real Life - simple story, great family characters and fantastic music!
Ok enough about MY entertainment! I also went to the Dr. yesterday and all looks great - I have my 2nd ultrasound on Thursday! They checked the babies heart rate and it was around 160 but the little one wouldn't hold still long enough for a really good read... I am taking that as a good sign I will have an active little wiggle-worm! I am posting this picture of me at 13 weeks despite my better judgment but at the request of far away friends and family - thanks a lot guys!
