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 »

Bubbles and I had the opportunity back in November to go and watch Disney FROZEN.  It was her second theater movie, and the first one she sat all the way through.  She was mesmerized from the start and over the last few weeks as she breaks into the song with “Let It Go” and asks for “warm hugs like Olaf” she’s proven that the movie made an impact on her.

When I was planning a special mother-daughter day for us recently, I decided it would be fun to do a FROZEN-themed day.  It certainly was apropos as the country was literally frozen in many places, including us here in Kentucky.  We’d been “enjoying” weather in the teens and it was about to dip below zero on the thermometer.  I wanted us to be able to get out and have some fun before it was too cold to be outside.

At the start of 2013 I shared with you my favorite Disney movies of 2012.  There were so many great new additions this past year that I wanted to share a 2013 Disney movies roundup with you.  All of these movies – listed in chronological order – are can’t-miss and if you didn’t catch them at the theater or pick up DVD copies yet, you should plan to for this year.

Oz the Great and Powerful

2013 Disney Movies: Free Printable Oz the Great and Powerful Activities & Games
A visually stunning movie, Oz the Great and Powerful provides you with information about the world of Oz with which you might not previously have been familiar.  The movie is more for adults than kids, but there are plenty of kid-friendly tie-ins for the movie, like the Oz Fashion Dolls.  And don’t forget to check out my post with Oz Party Ideas – I think an “Over the Rainbow” theme would be an awesome way to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day, too!

My family was invited to a screening in order for me to write my Disney Frozen review.  All thoughts and opinions are my own.

From the moment I saw the first previews, I knew that Disney’s Frozen was going to be a big hit.  And after having had the opportunity to see it with my family a couple of weeks ago, I’m calling that it will soon become a classic.  The animation, the songs, the story – it all adds up to amazing.

This was the second movie we had taken Bubbles to see at the theater but this was the first one she was able to stay and watch until the end.  Even after sitting in the theater for about thirty minutes prior to the movie starting, she happily sat in her seat for the whole thing, turning away from the screen only occasionally to share a laugh with me.  I don’t know how I had forgotten that it was going to be in 3D, but she opted not to wear her glasses and still enjoyed it.

Disney Frozen Review

Disney Frozen Review

At it’s center, Disney’s Frozen is about the relationship between sisters.  Princesses and sisters Anna and Elsa have always been so close, playing and having fun in their family’s castle.  Elsa has a special gift, the ability to create things from snow and ice.  Often the sisters would sneak downstairs while their parents slept and skate, slid, and play with the snowman named Olaf that Elsa brought to life for them.
