Another day, another life gone by :(

Reflecting tonight on my great-grandmother's passing. She lived to be 97 years old. She was born April 12th, 1914 & passed away last Friday, June 24th, 2011. She was a wonderful woman, as spoken about by her daughter & some of her granddaughters. The pastor from her church just talked about her in such a beautiful, positive way. I hope when I die that people say things like that about me.

We leave each day, but do we TRULY live? Do we enjoy ourselves & make memories with our family that are going to be remembered in 50 or 60 years? Even 30 or 40 years later? I sure hope that I am making these memories with mine.


Raisels ~ Sour Watermelon Shock

Got my sample pack this week. Everyone in my household tasted them. My son, husband & I liked them. My daughter is not a fan. They do not taste like raisins, more like fruit snacks. I woul regularly buy them!

Yogi Bear ~ 5/5

Here's what www.netflix.com says:

Yogi Bear2010 PG 80 minutes
When the greedy mayor (Andrew Daly) decides to close Jellystone Park to cash in by selling the land, Yogi Bear (voiced by Dan Aykroyd) and his sidekick Boo-Boo (voiced by Justin Timberlake) must team with their adversary, Ranger Smith (Tom Cavanagh), to save their home. Meanwhile, filmmaker Rachel (Anna Faris) follows Yogi and captures his antics. Nathan Corddry co-stars in this 3D live-action/computer-animated adventure.

My thoughts:

A fun family movie! Yogi was a comedy that was loved by all ages at our house! We laughed about the pic-nik baskets!! And the turtle was pretty awesome, we have turtles for pets at our house!

MOVIE REVIEW: Ramona & Beezus

Ramona & Beezus ~ 5/5

Here's what www.netflix.com says:

Ramona and Beezus2010 G 103 minutes
When free-spirited grade-schooler Ramona Quimby's (Joey King) wild imagination leads her into another adventure, she plunges in with her trademark energy … and penchant for mishaps, much to the consternation of her
parents and big sister Beezus (Selena Gomez). Bridget Moynahan and John Corbett co-star as Mom and Dad Quimby in director Elizabeth Allen's adaptation of the beloved children's books by Beverly Cleary.

My thoughts:

First off, Selena Gomez is such a cute actress. I just think she is so adorable & she fits the parts she plays so well. Joey King is just super cute as Ramona! She's too funny & really gets into her part! I would watch this again, it's a great family movie!

MOVIE REVIEW: That's What I Am

That's What I Am ~ 5/5

Here's what www.netflix.com says:

That's What I Am(2011) PG
A 12-year-old boy is convinced he's been pushed toward social suicide when his teacher pairs him up for a project with the school's biggest reject. But the boys form an unexpected bond when bullies turn their attention to an unlikely target.

My thoughts:

I absolutely LOVE Randy Orton! I am a huge fan of him & of wrestlers starring in movies! I especially like them in FIGHT movies!! I thought this movie was FABULOUS!! Not only does it have a good story, the plot of the movie is along the lines of what alot of kids deal with now. Bullying happens & people judge others. People are still in that mindset & this movie really taps into that. It has a good message! I was disappointed in Randy's part being so small & I also didn't think his character would be a "bad" guy. Even though that's the part he plays & he plays it WONDERFULLY!!

MOVIE REVIEW: Hunt to Kill

Hunt to Kill ~ 5/5

Here's what www.netflix.com says:

Hunt to Kill(2010) R
U.S. Border Patrol agent Jim Rhodes (Steve Austin), a deadly hunter whose only weak spot is his daughter, Kim (Marie Avgeropoulos), is forced to take violent revenge when a group of desperate thieves, led by the wily Banks (Gil Bellows), kidnaps Kim after a robbery. Banks demands that Rhodes lead them on foot through treacherous terrain to freedom across the border, but when he's crossed, Rhodes can't contain his fury.

My thoughts:

I'm a big time Stone Cold fan, so I absolutely LOVED it!! I thought the fight scenes were great, I love watching wrestlers in good fight movies!! Thought it was a good movie with a pretty good plot & storyline. I'd watch it again & I'm going to recommend it to my mom!

So MIA!!

I feel like I haven't gotten on my blog in FOREVER!! I've gotten so busy with school out, so it's summer vacation & we've been going to the pool & plus I've had friends around like crazy!

Today I was SUPER Me! I took 17 kids to the pool. Yes, 17!! I had one other adult with me & the kids range in age from 4-15. I was asked to take 4 more *all 3 and under* but I said NO THANK YOU!! I'm crazy, just not that crazy!!

And how exactly do you get sunburn when you sit in the shade all day, not even swimming at all! I didn't even wear a bathing suit!!
