A movie is being made for The BFG, one of my favoritest Books of All Life! By Books of All Life, I mean books I can read again and again, at any stage of my life, because I get that much enjoyment out of them. They are THAT GOOD.
Harry Potter series
most Stephen King and
almost all Dean Koontz books
Game of Thrones inspired books
and most Roald Dahl books
especially my favorite:
The BFG (Big Friendly Giant)
|Spielberg, The BFG (from the book) and Sophie found at craveonline.com
(Probably once people live past 202, they would like this book also, but I needed a number and 102 doesn't seem old ancient anymore thanks to whichever show says "Happy Birthday" to all those people over 100. There are a LOT! )
|Snozzcumber. From the BOOK, not movie
I read this book in middle school, high school, and many time as an adult, and again many times as a parent with my kids.
This story is an amazing Dahl tale of a friendly giant, who comes from the land of giants, to blow dreams into childrens' bedrooms. This books gives us snozzcumbers, their effect on giant and human bodies, and the native land where they grow.
Not to be confused with snozberries.
Whoever heard of a snozberry?"

I cannot wait to see this movie, even though I already know it can never live up to the book, or anyone's imagination.
2. I'm not sure how many (if any) of you have girly girls that are also SpiderMan fans, but all BOTH of you might be pleased to see these GIRLS SpiderMan 2 Happy Meal toys.
|My adult head is too big :( if I let go, it pops off
I'm not a girly girl but my girls like Star Wars and whatever
Blah blah blah unhealthy Mcfood and gender roles, "girl" and "boy" toys, you can still ASK for whichever toy you like. Uh, I mean that your KID likes.
Can't wait to wear this to Spiderman park! That's what we call a park by us that is red and blue and webby all over.
|They could've at least named this park PETER PARK. Right?
What is all this Thankful nonsense? It's part of a Thankful movement to look at the bright side of life.
We were exposed to a stomach flu, after having a whole-house flu bug this winter, I was even inspired to CLEAN and disinfect, by soaking everything in gasoline and lighting it on fire. Thankfully, no one has any symptoms yet. Thanks to House Targaryen Cleanser.
4. It's Magnolia bloomin' season. And by season, I mean the tiny precious window of time in between the blooming of the flowers on our favorite magnolia tree, Angie, and the time when the bitter Chicagoland wind rips them all violently from their branches. It's about a week or so. But what a week!
After much searching (online) and tours and meetings, we decided on and started the registration process for Lola for preschool in the fall. Bittersweet, but mostly sweet because she loves the idea of school, she's always playing school, she needs more stimulation and kids her age. And less just baby and Mom time.
Sunday is Star Wars day. May the Fourth be with you.

Have a great weekend and Merry Christmas!
