Its.... arrested development.

Now the story of a wealthy family who lost everything.. and the one son who had no choice but to keep them all together. It's arrested development.
It's here! It's really here! Arrested Development's triumphant return has arrived!
Did you know that Jason and I actually watched Arrested Development when it was on the air? Yep. We are two of the few who did. If more of you superfans had been around back then it never would have been canceled in the first place :)
We had a pretty low key party with my brother Josh and my sister Kelsey last night. Everyone brought food for different characters and after dinner and bedtime for the kids, we sat down for a marathon.

Martinis for Lucille (sparkling grape juice and grapes)

Juice for Buster and a dead dove (rotisserie chicken) for Gob.

Cornballs for Michael....

Teamocil (coconut M&Ms for Tobias) and we also had hot ham water (ham and potato soup) for Lindsay and pigs in a blanket for the the cousins (like they are wrapped up cuddling in a blanket)

Family love cheers!

Frozen bananas for George Michael and after we put the kids to bed, we ate homemade ice cream sandwiches for George (double dark chocolate cookies + vanilla bean ice cream = yum)

I listed a bunch of decorating ideas and games in this post, but we settled for a banner that said "Family love banner" and our marathon :)

Wow, I never thought this day would come. It was kind of surreal. So far we've watched five episodes and while the show definitely feels different, three of the episodes we watched made us laugh. Season four may not be the same as the first three seasons, but at least it's giving us a chance to really celebrate the genius that is Arrested Development.
