Loving “Frozen”

We all loved the movie– in fact, Ria has always been singing the songs sung in the film! We also love the story line and the plot… it is very family oriented and the ending is not just about a prince and a princess falling in love with each other and living happily ever after. It is about sisters reconciled and finding joy in forgiveness and acceptance.

I like the fact that “Frozen” is made by the same people who brought us “Tangled” and “Wreck-it Ralph”– I love those movies, too! Brilliant job on this one… and thanks for making it available to us, Disney!

P.S. Am I the only one surprised to hear Kristen Bell sing?

Hubby’s Dream Christmas Gift

I know, Christmas has gone by too fast and hubby is still dreaming of his Christmas present. Well, there’s always another Christmas waiting at the end of this year! :)

Musician hubby has always wanted to have one of those road-runner effects at musicians friend. With this kind of gadget, he feels so free to explore his kind of music and develop his skill more.

His dream is also to pass on this talent to our boy who is not that keen to learn guitar at 8. I hope he finds interest in music like his papa (now that’s my personal dream for my kids!).

Ria is Number 4!

Ok, sorry for not blogging right away on Ria’s competition results as promised. Well, she made it to number 4. Hubby and I are so proud! We are so thankful to Ria’s teachers for giving her this break. Landing on the 4th place is such an achievement, considering that she competed against more than ten contenders from different schools– and it’s just her first time!

She also did well in her Bible quiz bowl. She and her partner made it to the 6th place. What made her happier is the fact that she was the one who was able to answer the tie-breaking question correctly. Their singing group did not receive any award but it was a good experience for her. Maybe next time they would be needing more musical instruments with electric mistress deluxe!

Our girl will be in High School this year– we asked her if she wanted to transfer to the school where I graduated from but she begged me to let her stay in her current school. I don’t think it’s a bad idea!

…celebrating the joys of family life!
