The day we returned from our first camping trip with the girls, none of us wanted to do anything other than sit on the couch. We were exhausted! (And FINALLY clean. There was little vegetation at the campground, so there was dirt everywhere). Once we had all showered and the washing machine was started, we called our neighbor and asked if we could borrow Gnomeo & Juliet. (We were on the wait list at the library, but it was taking too long to climb to the top of the list). Since then, there has been a gnome obsession in my house.
We watched the movie twice before returning it to the neighbor. Right now my daughters are in the play room and pretending to dress up like gnomes. They're also singing "Gnomeo, gnomeo...." (If you've seen the movie, you know what I'm talking about).
The neighbor who lent us the movie has garden gnomes galore in the backyard. Now? My daughters want gnomes! They asked the neighbor what color hats his gnomes have. Unfortunately, we won't be able to create a red/blue rivalry because his gnomes have various colored hats. My daughters want to know when we're going to go buy a gnome. I don't know... garden gnomes have always been something I've avoided. I think they're kind of creepy looking. Plus, we don't have a garden, yet. I guess we'll have to wait and see what happens.
