About Me

My photo
Mysteries, polka dots, California Rolls, TJ Maxx, cozy blankets, rainy days and getting the first spoonful of peanut butter out of the jar make me smile. Spiders, rude people, cold fingers and toes, baby leashes, people that don't wrap their packages before going to the Post Office, poison ivy and Math (pretty much all of it) make me want to scream. My perfect day would be spent with my wonderful husband and sweet girls- watching movies in our jammies! Of course, having the movie theater to ourselves would be great, too. Please pass the popcorn and M&M's.:) I am saved by the grace of God. He is my constant companion and hears my every prayer. What a blessing! I'd love to hear from you!

Christmas Lodge review and giveaway!

Ericka is the winner of the Christmas Lodge movie!:)


   My 8 year old daughter and I just finished watching the sweetest movie, Christmas Lodge.  This type of movie is, sadly, hard to find.  The story line was heartwarming, the location of the movie was beautiful, there was no foul language, no inappropriate behavior or clothing, and the characters had a close relationship with God.  I loved seeing that the grandfather read from the Bible, that people respected each other, apple cider was enjoyed at the holidays (instead of alcohol) and that kissing was minimal.  One part of the movie involves a dating couple staying at a hotel.  I was pleasantly surprised that they had separate rooms!  I wish there were more movies like Christmas Lodge!  Here is a synopsis of the movie:


   Thomas Kinkade presents Christmas Lodge: a place where a heart-warming past and loving future meet for one remarkable group of people. During a weekend trip to the mountains, Mary (Erin Karpluk) finds herself at the now- dilapidated lodge where she spent the holidays with her family growing up. She becomes determined to restore the building to its former glory. Inspired by her grandfather and guided by her grandmother in heaven, Mary throws herself into the project, and during the process finds herself drawn to Jack (Michael Shanks), a handsome man who loves the lodge as much as she does. Historically unlucky in love, this chance encounter allows Mary to renew her faith in life and discover her one true love. For an uplifting story about the importance of faith, family and the true holiday spirit, go to the Christmas Lodge.


  Christmas Lodge is a precious movie to share with your family.  It will definitely put you in the mood for Christmas- and I am not referring to stress the holiday often brings.  It will leave you feeling warm and wonderful- and wanting more.:)   You can watch the trailer for the movie here.


Christmas Lodge would be a wonderful holiday gift and you can purchase it here.


 We plan on watching this on Thanksgiving with the whole family.

It IS hard to find a decent movie these days. We try to watch oldies (Andy Griffith Show, Johnny Tremain, Davy Crockett, etc.) with the kids because so many modern ones are terrible--but there are only so many. I wish more like this would come out! ; )
