I broke out the video camera today with the idea that the girls would add to our burgeoning library of movie classics retold in their own voices. Instead, they continued the Beauty and the Beast narrative and waxed poetic about a great American man and a great American sandwich.
Parents, I know you were in a store recently and noticed Beauty and the Beast for sale. Your kids went crazy asking you to buy it for them, but due to Disney's dictatorial stranglehold on their DVD distribution, you also noticed that the movie is priced as if you were wearing Air Jordans and asking friends what Teen Spirit is. So you stood there wondering where you could find this seminal work of animation and downright princessy-ness for a reasonable price. Well look no further. I give you Matilda's Cliffs Notes edition of Beauty and the Beast.
As our camera somehow broke in Japan (thanks honey), the only way that I can show off the beautiful homemade costumes the girls wore on Halloween (again, thanks honey [sincerely]) is by posting these videos we shot during our five house, hour long trick-or-treating session. Notice the expansive range of movement the costumes allow when Tilda throws her pumpkin at her sister.
