Remember how I dislike Christmas music

It reminds me of my mom. Then I think about how Christmas isn't the same without her. Then I feel guilty because Christmas isn't about moms right? It's about The Savior. But moms add the magic... at least mine did. 

But I don't hate ALL Christmas music... 
I am basically five years old. 
I LOVE this movie and the soundtrack.
I was SO excited when I found it at the library. 
I had it cranked up all the way back to the office. 
For some reason this stupid movie makes me LOVE Christmas. 
Something about it make me feel like a kid again, and Santa is coming, 
and mom will be there in the morning. 

After all "it's only (26) more sleeps til Christmas!"


Worst Movie Ever

A while ago I angered a lot of people by posting as my Facebook status, a list of the movies that, in my opinion are the worst movies ever made. Included in that list are the following:
The Dark Crystal
The Labyrinth
The Last Unicorn
The Secret of Nim
The Never Ending Story

I was at Lolly's house the other night, teasing her husband about watching Tinkerbell... Because he did, by himself, his choice. Anyway, that is when I added Last Unicorn to the list and while Lolly was threatening to put me on friendship timeout, we discussed how there are just some movie that if you didn't like as a child you never will. Although, Katy made me watch Dark Crystal when we were little and I NEVER loved it.

I truly don't understand the love people have for these movies. I asked Lolly "So you would seriously come home after a long day, snuggle up on the couch, and think to yourself that you'd really love to put The Labyrinth on and give it a watch?" She very strongly assured me that she would, and that is when Joshua got up to put the movie in, and I decided it was time to leave.

So I tried to think of a movie I loved as a child that I'm sure no one else would love if they viewed it now for the first time. I came up with one. I know that those of you who didn't love it as a child probably want to stab your eyes out if made to watch it. But those who love it could probably, like me, quote the entire thing from beginning to end. What movie you ask? Saturday's Warrior!

Oh how I love the bad acting, limited cast, horrible outfits, cheesy choreography, and false doctrine that is one of my favorite movies of all time!

What is your favorite childhood movie? Did you rewind the part of Home Alone II when Marv says "wow what a hole" as many times as we did? Did you have a brother who watched Scamper the Penguin or The Little Engine That Could multiple times a day until you were dreaming about macaroni penguins like I did?

Do you secretly love Saturday's Warrior as much as me? Or perhaps not so secretly?   


It's Cold, Seriously

J: Annie why are you dressed like it is winter?

M: Because it is DECEMBER in the Rocky Mountains!I think there has to be a John Denver song about that.

J:It's going to be 50 degrees today, that is down right balmy.

M:You Utah people are seriously crazy.

Seriously you are.

K: I am not sure if it is cold enough for a trip to lava yet.

You are also Crazy! 


What are the chances?

Zac: I'm just heading home for the weekend what are you up to?
Annie: In Logan picking Lolly and the babe up to go to the USU game.
Zac: That sounds fun.
Annie: What the heck is going on? It says road closed but I need to go down that exact road. I'll just do it anyway.
Zac: Wait, where are you?
Annie: I'm on 10th turning onto 10th by Gosner's.
Zac: Stop right where you are.
Annie: Why?
Zac: I want to hug you.
Annie: Okay, I'm pulling into this Texaco. Where are you?
Zac: In the black charger behind you.

What are the chances? Seriously! So glad I was able to spend 10 minutes with one of my besties in the parking lot of a texaco. I love that in that ten minutes I received about 12 hugs, and the "duck look" at least 5 times.

Happy Birthday to Me

I got this little beauty in my email. Yes please! I'll take two!

Oh, and one more picture for you viewing pleasure.
You are jealous of my Happy Birthday Banana!

Leah, Kate, Cam, and Dave threw me a party.
Joan dressed up!

They put so much work into it and I felt so loved.
Thanks to all who came!
Turns out we were so busy goofing off,
that this is the only picture taken at the party.
But it was fun I promise.
