Family Movie Night

We try to have a family movie night on Fridays. It doesn't always work out that way though. Either Dan is working or there is some family/church function that we need to attend. However, today the girls behaved really well at the pediatrician's office (they both have bronchitis!!) and so, we wanted to reward them for a really good day!!

Since we hadn't been to the video store, I scoped out what was "On Demand".....and we ended up watching Horton Hears a Who! I have to say, this was a really good movie! I know that we're a little late in watching it as it came out sometime last year, but, it was great!

I'm sure that all of the political "talking heads" and "pundits", pro-lifer's and pro-choicer's have all had a great time picking it apart....but I must say that it had a GREAT message:

"A person is a person, no matter how small"

Hmmm....even Dr. Seuss got it! When will the rest of the knuckleheads?
If you have not had the chance to see this movie....please rent it! You will not be disappointed! Dan and I were in hysterics several times....I mean really belly-laughing! This was just what I needed to shake me out of my funk!

The book version has recently blessed our lives. We've been wondering if the DVD version is worth the money.

Perhaps we shall now go rent it in our copious free time.

Thanks for recommendation.

3/14/9 Nancy, Hi, I so appreciate the children's movie reviews and recommendations you include here, books, too. You keep me in the know for the benefit of my time with the children in my family. My own children are grown. Also, I'm glad you enjoyed my post. Kind of off the beaten path for me HAHA! and so I'm thankful for that and for your feedback as well. What you read is a first draft. I've refined it since then in case you want to take another look. God love and bless you now and always.

I'm a little late with my comment... hoping you will look back to this post. I'm so glad to hear the movie helped you out of your funk. I find that sometimes it helps to know there is a reason that kids are feeling so horrible. I hope the girls are feeling better. (Maybe I'll get the answer as I read your newer posts!) I hope you are continuing to feel better!
