I love Mary Poppins--witty & intelligent, magical & mysterious, strict & spontaneous... Some of you may remember when I got to see the Broadway musical in NYC for my 30th birthday.
My obsession with the practically-perfect nanny has been renewed this fall. Beth has discovered the magic of the nursery and the walks around snapping and saying, "spoonful o sugar" and "spit-spot!" Here is Mini Poppins.
Did you see that there is a Mary-Poppins movie coming out this Christmas? It's called Saving Mr. Banks, starring two of my favs--Tom Hanks and Emma Thompson. I mean, how can you go wrong, right?
The movie is about how Walt Disney convinced P.L. Travers to sell her rights to her books so he could make the movie. It was not a match-made-in-heaven. Check out the trailer here.
Anne I have been getting in on the Poppins' act as well. We all dressed up for the harvest festival at church.
