Charming!

Pia and I saw the movie "Hugo" this afternoon.  It's based on a wonderful children's book called "The Invention of Hugo Cabret" (Susna, I'll bet Tate would love this book), and we both loved it.

I love silent movies and part of the plot revolves around a pioneer of film, the French film maker Georges Melies.  You can see his most famous film, "A Trip to the Moon" here:

Even if you're not a silent film buff, the movie is a lot of fun.  The sets are amazing, the actors are great and the story is interesting!

It was fantastic. And that is still one of my favorite books! If Tate hasn't read it, she definitely needs too. Plus she'll feel really awesome when she finishes (it's super big, but half the story is told through pictures). :)
