Bubbles has been very excited about Valentine’s Day this year.  I think part of it is how closely it both follows Christmas and precedes her birthday.  It’s just an exciting time of year.

She has been asking what we’re going to do to celebrate Valentine’s Day, and as this is the first year she’s showed much interest, I’m leaving it up to her.  (Within reason, of course.)  So while that’s unlikely to mean a fancy dinner out for hubby and I, it will mean a lot of family fun for all of us, and I prefer that any day of the week, anyway.

Happy Easter!  So thankful that today actually feels like Easter – warm and sunny!  And we’ve been able to enjoy the day with family and friends.  Really a perfect day.

Bubbles had a wonderful morning of chasing down eggs and opening treats.  Then we had lunch, where one of Ashley’s friends from college declared my White Cheddar Mac & Cheese (no chicken or broccoli today) the best food on Earth.  Yeah, that will make you smile.

Frozen "Easter Egg" - Rapunzel & Flynn Visit Arendelle

Now something to make all of you smile!  You may or may not be aware that Pixar is kind of famous for “Easter Eggs” in their movies – a character or item from one will end in another in a really small way.  Disney does it, too, like when Rapunzel and Flynn show up in Frozen (see above!).

It’s no secret that we love the Disney Frozen movie.  I shared my Disney Frozen review with you after we took Bubbles to see it in theaters back in November.  And recently we even had a Mother/Daughter Disney Frozen day of fun.

Disney Frozen's Elsa Sings "Let It Go"

One of the things I loved most about the movie was the music.  The “Let It Go” song is not only one of my favorite songs from Frozen, but is one of my favorite Disney movie songs, period.  Bubbles has been singing this song literally since we returned to our car after the movie. Continue reading »
