Family Movie Night for Sunday, March 1st!
This past week was Annabelle's pick. So we went to the video store and the movie that she picked out was...
Now, I wasn't sure what made her pick out this movie, but she wouldn't let it go. After reading the back jacket of the video box, Keith & I decided to get it (and if the movie is something that the kiddos shouldn't be watching, we'll just turn it off). I have heard it is an excellent movie, but is it appropriate for kids - we were going to find out!
Well...this movie is truly a must see. While Annabelle looked like she enjoyed the movie (she sat through the whole thing), I not sure she truly understood what this movie was about, you can bet for sure, our Francesca did and she LOVED it...as we did too! At first, I wasn't 100% convinced that the girls should be watching it (the main characters in the movie who are having some problems within their marriage got into a major yelling & finger pointing fight), but after that scene was over, the movie took a turn for the better. By the end of the movie, all eight eyes were glued to the TV and most were crying. To sum it up (if you haven't heard anything about this AMAZING movie)....the movie focuses on a couple who are on the verge of divorce when the husband's father steps in with some "40 day advise". I think you can all guess what happens at the end, but it is truly captivating on how this couple got there. You will look at your own marriage with fresh and understanding eyes!
I think Francesca summed it up best when the film credits started rolling and she said..."Now they love each other again and they can live happily every after...."
This movie is truly a must see!
We are still battling "that nasty bug" here at our house so we had a nice weekend spent mostly at home. As you can see from the photo above, our Annabelle is still so sick...her little nose is so red from it running. We again have our family portraits rescheduled for this coming weekend so here's to our house recovering from whatever hit us and a nice ~ smooth week ahead....
