Disney’s Wreck-It Ralph Opened #1!

Disney's "Wreck-It Ralph" Movie - #1 Opening Weekend

For all those who went and saw Disney’s Wreck-It Ralph on the opening weekend – thank you for supporting Disney and such a great movie.  Thanks to you, Wreck-It Ralph opened #1 at the box office with $49 million – the largest opening in Walt Disney Animation Studio’s history!  The movie continues to collect accolades from critics, and everyone that I’ve spoken to that saw it has said they loved it.  I know the music makes me want to sing along every time I hear a commercial for it.

If you have loved the nostalgic feel of the games, or if you want to share something fun from your childhood with your kiddos, you’ll love this free printable build your own mini “Fix It Felix Jr.” game cabinet!  I remember spending many an hour in arcades (which are almost as extinct as the rotary phone, sadly) playing games just like this one.  Click each image to open a larger, printable version.

Growing up, I wasn’t what you would call a country music “fan”.  I made all the standard jokes (country music is an oxymoron, ha ha.  Wasn’t I witty?) and teased my friends who listened to the genre.  I was one of the few odd (wo)men out, as almost everyone I knew enjoyed at least a few country music artists.

It turned out that for me, country music was a lot like asparagus: give it a try, and you’ll find that you like it.  Once I actually listened to a wider sampling with an open mind I found that I liked country music very much.  Today, if you get in the car with me, you’ll find it’s always tuned in to a country station.
