A Christmas Carol


The whole family (and Rachael) went to see that Christmas Carol movie in 3D tonight. Andrew and I thought the glasses were particularly awesome. The movie was really neat. I don't think I've ever seen a movie in 3D (not including anything showing at Six Flags or Sea World). I think it was done really well too. Tyler was a little scared at times but it was good. You should go see it.
I have discovered something wonderful: Thriftbooks.com
You can get a book for less than $5 and free shipping.
Now I am in the habit of going to Barnes and Noble, browsing their fiction section, taking pictures of books, and going online to Thriftbooks and finding them for about ten bucks cheaper. This is probably wrong, I know. But who cares. Times are tough. We've all got to tighten the belt somewhere.
3 days until Kristin comes home! Lauren, I wish you were coming with her.

No need to work that hard to find a cheap book - there is a free Iphone app called pic2shop that will use your camera to scan barcodes of things and will then go out and compile a list of bargains for you. It will even email the search results to you for later reference. Try it out with some books you have laying around your house, you'll be amazed.

There are other apps that do the same thing that cost money, but obviously we have not tried them.
