Walt Disney Animation Studios, the studio behind “Tangled” and “Wreck-It Ralph,” presents “Frozen,” a stunning big-screen comedy adventure. Fearlessoptimist Anna (voice of Kristen Bell) sets off on an epic journey—teaming up with rugged mountain man Kristoff (voice of Jonathan Groff) and his loyal reindeer Sven—to find her sister Elsa (voice of Idina Menzel), whose icy powers have trapped the kingdom of Arendelle in eternal winter. Encountering Everest-like conditions, mystical trolls and a hilarious snowman named Olaf (voice of Josh Gad), Anna and Kristoff battle the elements in a race to save the kingdom.

The film is directed by Chris Buck (“Tarzan,” “Surf’s Up”) and Jennifer Lee (screenwriter, “Wreck-It Ralph”), and produced by Peter Del Vecho (“Winnie the Pooh,” “The Princess and the Frog”). Featuring music from Tony® winner Robert Lopez (“The Book of Mormon,” “Avenue Q”) and Kristen Anderson-Lopez (“In Transit”), “Frozen” is in theaters in 3D on November 27…

I am so excited to tell you about some of the products/ companies I learned about while visiting Americas Mart!!!
Since it is FOOTBALL SATURDAY, I want to share with you an AMAZING find...  I had originally planned to share with you this for Christmas, but I just can not hold out any longer... 
Game Day Rules is a set of books from Sherri Graves Smith.
I thought it was so cute to see these books....and you know that we are a house divided...  My love of my bulldogs and Marc's love of his tigers... Broxton cheers for both and all is right in the world.

Game Day Rules is a great set of books that basically writes out how to to act when you visit your favorite stadium.  Sherri sent us both the UGA and the LSU versions!

I remember the first time I watched Modern Family... I was busting out laughing and had to call and tell everyone I knew about that show... It was just too funny!  But then, being a first time mom with a newborn baby and deployed husband got the best of me and television was not one that took top priority...  I watch now from time to time, but my ultimate goal is to start several television shows at episode one and catch up... Modern Family is one of those...  I love when any (and I do mean ANY) of the cast is on Ellen, as I watch and laugh so hard... they all just seem like genuine funny people!
Well, you know I can ramble on and on... but I wanted to let you know that Season Four will be available for sale on September 24th…

Broxton has jumped head first into a love of Lego's like you just do not know... I love them to, until I step on one during the middle of the night... (They aren't that fun during the day either, but at night, man... the little toy Army men must use them to set traps to protect themselves!)  Anyways, that is for a whole different day... So.. Broxton and Lego's...  love... He loves making things... loves seeing what new construction he might come up with... I love that he uses his imagination... and I love that Lego's makes him work on focusing and on hand/eye coordination.
We were recently sent a book, Cool Creations in 35 Pieces.  Talk about neat...
You know how when you buy the Lego pack, you get that littl…

Good Morning, Glory!!!

Image
I tell you... We keep getting surprises that are just amazing at the house...
A couple weeks ago, I noticed this blue flower out by the house... but then when I returned later that day, it was not there...  Sort of odd, but I did not think about it again..
Then, a few days later, I noticed it again...   once again, it was gone later...
I finally said something to Marc and he told me that it had to be one of those flowers that opened with the sunlight and then closed up to sort of " go to sleep" later in the day.
I thought he was crazy, but I asked my grandmother... and she said she had heard of them, but did not remember the name of it...
Finally, I thought about snapping a picture to figure it out...
Then, I learned it was called a "Morning Glory!"

This was the beautiful flower that we noticed in the morning!

But, when we returned and started to look, this was what we found!

Yesterday, I posted the Q&A with the author, Nancy Tillman... Today, I tell you about the awesome book that I had the chance to review.  Luckily for me, I was able to look at it without Broxton, as I want to give him this sweet book as one of his Christmas gifts!  I'd Know You Anywhere, My Love is a one of a kind book that truly shows the unmistakable love we have for someone close to us...
Oh, side note really quick... some of you might be familiar with the book,  "On the Night You Were Born," well, this is from the same author!      In I'd Know You Anywhere, we get to see the beautiful artistry... not only with the words that Nancy has used to tell the story, but also in the beautiful illustrations that…

Book review coming tomorrow, but wanted to sort of introduce the author to you!!!  Enjoy!!



Q&A with Nancy Tillman
1.Animals figure prominently in your books. What is your favorite animal?   My favorite animal is my pug, Figgy.  That’s the truth!  Fig is my mascot… he sits beside me every day as I write and illustrate.  Other than that, every animal has special characteristics that draw me to it. Everyone is unique and wonderful in its own way…and each one suits a child differently.  Giraffes are so tall they are perfect to help children pick apples.  One can easily cross a stream upon a hippo.  Who better to have a water fight with than an elephant?
2.If you could be any animal, what would you be? Why?I suppose I’d be a bi…

We have luckily found a church that we enjoy going to.   I feel bad that it took us so long, but I am just really thankful that we have found one and that Broxton enjoys going to church!!!
