My Princesses, The Princess & the Frog & A Little Princess

We had a great Christmas & New Year's. Here are some pics from the last few weeks:

More sweetness...
Here are the girls right before we left to see The Princess and the Frog...tutus and all! I've been wondering when Disney would get around to creating a dark skinned princess. Well, they finally did it & the movie was pretty good. According to Mia, the best part of the movie was the lightning bug...according to Emy, the best part of the movie was the popcorn!

Christmas Day

I just watched this again with my girls and I wanted to share one of the songs from the movie. This is a remake of the Shirley Temple movie. If for some reason you don't know the story, it's about a girl who leaves India to go to a girls school because her father is being sent off to war (her mother has passed). While there, they get word that her father has died in battle and she is forced to work at the school and serve the other girls. She escapes the harshness of her new reality by telling the other girls stories of India. The remake is a great movie and I nearly cry every time I watch it. If you have kids and haven't seen the movie yet, go rent it! Here's the movie's original trailer and here's a song from the movie:

I just loved that book and can't wait to read it to Anya Rashi, but I've never seen any of the movie versions. The Secret Garden (by the same author) is a wonderful story too, but has no India connection. :o) Thanks for the recommendation!
