For the Love of Disney

Ever since I was a little girl I've been a fan of Disney movies.

When a new one came out to theatres, it was cause for celebration. I can still remember the time I went and saw Little Mermaid. I went with my best friend Rose and saw a boy from elementary school and hid from him.

I remember when my Mom bought me Aladdin and my sister, brother and I spent the entire summer vacation watching it.

I started collecting the videos (this was before DVDs were truly popular and affordable) so that one day when I had kids, I could share my love for Disney movies with them.

And while I'm tickled pink that I'm finally able to do that, I think I may have kicked myself in the pants with this one. Especially one of my favorites, Toy Story.

I found this movie while unpacking a long lost box from our move three years ago. I unearthed the Toy Story movie, dug out the VCR and popped it in for Roo.

And the rest is insanity.

We've watched Toy Story 1 & 2 (I found the second one at Goodwill for $2), every day for the past two weeks.

I mean, I'm not too disappointed in this because like I said, I enjoy the movie. But I can quote the entire movie from heart. I don't even need to be watching the screen to know exactly what Buzz and Woody are doing.

I do have to tell you though, I love how my girl lights up and jumps up and down when I mention watching the movies. She races as fast as her toddler legs can take her to the bedroom shouting: BUZZZZZZZZ!! WOOOODDDYYYY!!!

And I melt.

Sure, I've tired the Little Mermaid and Beauty and the Beast, but the Princesses will have to wait. For now, Toy Story rules this house.

Get used to this! My boys still do this especially in the truck. Right now its Italian Job and Bolt.

Huge Disney fan here too! My kids LOVE Toy Story and we watch it all the time. It is to the point that when they here the song (we have the soundtrack too) they can tell me what is happening in the movie! But it is fine with me since, like you, I have been a Disney fan since I was quite young!

I just posted a comment, but typed my url wrong, so when you click my name it will take you to a Bible page (rather than my Disney Mom page) . . . interesting! Sorry about that, I must have typed something wrong! I'll get it right this time around! :-)
