Movie Mom

I can hear the discussions going on now…”Mom, can I please go see New Moon?”  A blockbuster for teens is out today from the Twilight Series, “New Moon”.  Yes, it’s a movie about Vampires, it’s based on a book series written by a mom who wanted a romance novel for teens that did not include pre-marital sex.   Movie Mom recommends it for teens 14 and up.  For more details to help you decide if it’s appropriate for your kids check out Movie Mom’s Blog.

Another big film that’s getting lots of buzz this weekend is “The Blind Side”.  A true story starring Sandra Bullock about how one mom puts her faith in action and “adopts” an at-risk teen who ends up becoming an NFL player. Movie Mom loves this film for it’s practical depiction of a family living out their faith.

Geek Dad Gift Guide

My Geeky and frugal husband, Greg, always says that my gift to him is “not spending any money”.  But that’s not fun!  A friend of mine sent me this fun list of geek dad gift ideas from So fun!  I have to admit even I’m a little excited about the vintage Laser Tag set!

Positive Thoughts

If you want to be happy focus on your blessings not your burdens.

The world doesn’t care what you know until they know that you care.

As far as the east is from the west, so far has God removed our sins from us

Set your goals high, and don’t stop till you get there.

Let us be grateful to people who make us happy; they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom

Fear is faith that it won’t work out.
