A few photos and a few thoughts


*These are just a few snapshots of our Thanksgiving at the beach.  I look forward to this vacation every year.  

*We saw Frozen at the beach, and it was amazing.  Idina Menzel is the voice for one of the leads, and her voice in this song, is...I don't even know...because "incredible" doesn't do it justice.  But there goes Idina Menzel being all fierce again.

*I also saw Catching Fire last week, (I can't believe I haven't talked about it until now), and agree with the people that are saying that the movies are better than the books.  Noel says that he's Team Gale, but that's probably only because I have a mega crush on Peeta.

*Carla recommended the book, Dad is Fat, to me, and I'm so glad she did because it is hilarious.  I always read it when someone is asleep or when I'm in a room full of people, so I'm always doing that laugh thing through my nose.  You know? Where you can't actually laugh out loud, but it's impossible not to react in some way because it's THAT funny, so you end up just kinda loudly nose breathing?

*The other night, as I was putting Charlie in his bed, he said, "Ok, I'll go to sleep here for a little bit, and then I'll come to your bed so we can snuggle." My heart about burst. Can he stay that sweet forever?

I hope you have an amazing weekend!!

I clicked on that link and I am laughing my butt off at the excerpt! I am definitely going to buy this book, I have always liked Jim Gaffigan.

You are like the fifth person that has said wonderful things about Frozen. Not good things, but wonderful! Guess I do need to see it!

We saw Catching Fire last weekend also, LOVED IT! I could watch it a thousand times..It's one of the few movies that actually lives up to the books. Gale, gosh..he is one of my current crush's! He is just more my kinda man I guess, but the passion that Peeta has for Katniss. Ugh. I'm torn!

Idina Menzel has an amazing voice...I just love her! That last photo is so cute with all three of you bundled up on the beach :)

Y'all are so cute, Ash! Love your scarf. We were supposed to see Frozen over T-day, but for some reason we decided not to. (Probably too pooped from black Friday shopping!) We'll have to go see it! :)

Caroline said...

Ashley, your family is honestly just too precious for me to handle! Also great minds think alike - I bought the same scarf you have for my sister last week :) And my roommate's obsessed with Idina Menzel, so she'll probably love you even more than she does already after seeing this post (she secretly stalks my favorite bloggers, but doesn't tell me, and it makes my heart so happy when I look over at her computer sometimes and she's scrolling through my faves!)

Made it on da blog! Woohoo! TEAM PEETA!

I cannot wait to see Catching Fire. I was supposed to see it tomorrow, but with our weather here it probably won't happen. I re-read it this week and I'm way too excited about seeing it.

We plan on taking Hayden (our almost 7-year-old) to see Frozen soon. It looks really cute.

And lovely pictures!

I'm obsessed with that shot of you and Noel! :) SO beautiful!

I want to see Frozen and Catching Fire so badly!!! I'm jealous that you got to see both of them already. ;-)

Rebecca Lately said...

Your boys are too sweet! I haven't seen Catching Fire yet. Will and I are going out to celebrate my birthday (better late than never, I suppose!) this weekend. Maybe we'll see that!
