See What My Kids Said This Week!

My top five laughs:

5.  We were driving this week and I told Hayley we could listen to the radio. I turned on the local pop station and she knew so many more songs than I did. She even know the words of some songs that I did not know existed. Weird!

4. The kids are dying to play in the snow. A few mornings it was snowing slightly (think 1/2 inch) and they proceeded to put on full snow gear. I had to disappoint them that it was barely flaking.

3. I told Hayley to watch Taylor when I was showering. When I was in the shower, I heard Hayley say to Taylor, “Taylor why are you always smiling!” It melted my heart!

2. I have to go for a MRI of my leg tonight and Hayls asked if she could come. I asked why and she said she wanted to see the big SpaceShip machines. She is crazy!

Aeropostale will be closing in the stores, but do not worry as you can order all of their adorable clothes online at Aeropostale. If you are not familiar with P.S. Aeropostale, they have the cutest fashions, geared towards children 4-12. You can seriously find the best fashion for the little ones with great price tags attached!

Right now they you can find great tees, pants, jeans, sweats, capris, leggings, dresses and more online and in their stores. Since they are switching to online, you can find a ton of their winter items at clearance to prepare for the spring season. They have their famous graphic tees that start as low as $5 and jeans that start at $12. You can’t beat that price! Their clothes are functional, fashionable, and hip.

STRANGE MAGIC – In Theatres Everywhere!!

Are you all excited?! The wait is finally over and STRANGE MAGIC (which is from the mind of George Lucas) is now playing in theaters everywhere!

Synopsis: “Strange Magic,” a new animated film from Lucasfilm Ltd., is a madcap fairy tale musical inspired by “A Midsummer Night’s Dream.” Popular songs from the past six decades help tell the tale of a colorful cast of goblins, elves, fairies and imps, and their hilarious misadventures sparked by the battle over a powerful potion. Lucasfilm Animation Singapore and Industrial Light & Magic bring to life the fanciful forest turned upside down with world-class animation and visual effects. Directed by Gary Rydstrom (“Toy Story Toons: Hawaiian Vacation,” “Lifted”) from a story by George Lucas, “Strange Magic” will be released by Touchstone Pictures on Jan. 23, 2015.

To get you excited here are some FUN FACTS!unnamed 24 STRANGE MAGIC   In Theatres Everywhere!!

NAME THAT TUNE – “Strange Magic” weaves together new versions of favorite songs from the last six decades—including songs made famous by artists ranging from Mickey & Sylvia and Elvis Presley to Kelly Clarkson, Beyoncé and Lady Gaga.

HE LOVES ME, HE LOVES ME NOT – Filmmakers needed to concoct a magical love potion for the film, so when they discovered that primroses grow where shadow meets the light (part light/part shade)—they knew they had their chief ingredient for Sugar Plum Fairy’s love potion. In the movie, primroses aptly grow on the border of the Fairy Kingdom and the Dark Forest. In an effort to do away with love forever, the ruler of the Dark Forest, Bog King, orders every primrose destroyed.

FLY AWAY – Artists referenced monarch and blue morpho butterflies to create the look of fairies like Marianne, Dawn and Roland. Animation was customized for each fairy and designed to reflect individual personalities and where they were in their character arc. Marianne, for example, goes from clumsy to athletic during the course of the film.

BUGGY BOG – Artists looked at dragonfly wings and grasshoppers when creating Bog’s look. As far as Bog’s performance, animators took him from hunched over and angry to elegant.

SO SURREAL – Executive producer George Lucas, who’s behind the story of “Strange Magic” considers Sugar Plum Fairy to be more magical than your average fairy—“a little more Salvador Dalí,” he says.

GOOD GOBLIN – Artists and animators referenced frogs, lizards and other amphibians and reptiles to perfect the look of goblins like Stuff and Thang.

ANOTHER FINE MESS – Stuff and Fang, Bog’s loyal goblin assistants, were created in the spirit of famous comedy teams like Laurel and Hardy and Abbott and Costello.

THE TRAMP – Charlie Chaplin and his best-known character, The Tramp, served as inspiration for Imp. Both characters cause trouble for no good reason, so animators added Chaplin-esque flourish to Imp’s movement.

REAL ROCK – Lucasfilm artists tasked with creating the royal palace for Fairy King and his daughters found reference in Big Rock Ranch, a property George Lucas owns. A smaller rock was discovered on the property that looked like the signature rock. It was scanned and used as a 3D model for Fairy Rock in the movie—which hosts the great ball.

FRIGHTENING FERNS – Filmmakers found fun foliage to help illustrate the spookiness of the Dark Forest. Fiddlehead ferns, which feature furled fronds, were very effective tools in the film: one unfurls as Marianne makes her way through the forest.

JUST DREAMY – “Strange Magic” is inspired by Shakespeare’s comedy play “A Midsummer Night’s Dream,” and includes a controversial love potion, the theme of love and the spirit of feminism, as well as an infusion of comedy. But the characters in “Strange Magic” are wholly unique—with striking looks and compelling personalities.

SISTER, SISTER – Just like her character Marianne, actress Evan Rachel Wood has a little sister and says she can relate to Marianne’s desire to look out for Dawn. Likewise, Meredith Anne Bull, who provides the voice of Dawn, has an older sister.

PLAYING FAVORITES – Elijah Kelley, who provides the voice of Sunny, says his favorite character in “Strange Magic” is Bog King, who’s voiced by Alan Cumming.

THAT’S NUTS – Roland, a knight in shining armor (at least in his head) makes his way through the forest atop his loyal steed Chipper. But Chipper’s not a horse—he’s a squirrel.
