Day 8 - Frozen


I (finally) took my girls to watch Frozen today.  I know.  We are pretty late to the Frozen party, but better late than never, right?  I had seen the previews, my kids were interested in seeing it, but it just never really worked out.

Today I decided it was time. 

I just love taking them to movies and today was no different.  They are five and eight, so movies are still a big deal.  They were delighted to purchase the tickets, they could hardly contain themselves in the popcorn line and they skipped down the hall with their blond heads bouncing to theater #14.

It was a small theater room...I guess that's what you get when you wait so long.  There were maybe 20 others who were sharing the screen with us.  For a children's movie, it stayed pretty quiet too!  The popcorn was fairly disappointing.  It smelled better than it tasted and I'm pretty sure it was scraped from the bottom of the barrel.  The movie, however, was spectacular!

My girls were clearly enchanted.  From the moment the first scenes appeared on the screen, they were hooked.  They giggled, they smiled, they tapped their feet to the music, they frowned in all the right places and they fully enjoyed every minute. 

I fully enjoyed watching their faces.  The movie was amazing and the message it sent was fantastic.  Love conquers all, love makes things better, true love can thaw a frozen heart.  Yes, it was probably the best Disney movie I've seen in a very long time.  I'm sorry it took us so long to go see this movie, but there is a bright side.  It comes out on DVD in only 10 days! 

The girls were so in love with this movie that we had to stop at Target (oh, darn!) to see if they had any Frozen toys. 

"We will even buy them with our own money Mom!" they begged.

They can be pretty persuasive, and I do love Target.  Needless to say, we left target today with a lighter wallet, two Anna dolls, and happy hearts.

It doesn't get much better than that!

  1. What a wonderful afternoon! I love that you're capturing these special times in words. I haven't seen Frozen yet. Time to put it on the Netflix list. Love that closing line!

  2. Glad you enjoyed the movie, but more so the time with your girls... Now just wait for those songs to completely infiltrate your home! My daughter has me playing them on the piano for her and even my husband can be heard humming along! I loved the message for sisters too!

  3. Okay, so literally right before I read your post I was humming, "Do You Wanna Build a Snowman." True story.

  4. I really like your slice because you capture so much about the moment in here. I love reading things that bring back sweet memories and that is what your slice did. I can remember the days when my girls were little and we went to see a movie in the theater and it was such a happy moment and a big deal for them.

  6. My favorite part of your slice was when you describe the look on your girls faces as they watched the movie. Your ending summed your day up nicely. :-)

  7. Everyone I have talked to has said that they loved this movie. Thinking I might have to go see it. Hopefully the popcorn will be better than what you experienced.
