And that's when I just went on and on about a movie that has just the best story of true love: sister love. We all know that I'm an observer of sister love day in and day out. When Avery's school had a movie night, they showed Frozen and it was the first time I had seen it. We were outside all sitting on blankets, and all these sweet little kids were singing along. Really, when Let It Go started all you heard were the sweetest sounds of soft songbirds, and then after it was over they went back to running a muck, but during that song, I teared up, and I'm fairly certain others moms did too.
We then had to get it, so we have it on our iTunes and when the girls get to watch TV, or "a show" we watch Frozen in parts. I have a video of Avery singing Let It Go that I'm sure will be viewed years from now and I won't know what to do with myself.
I love that this movie tells of story of true love through sacrifice. That's our love story with Jesus, that he gave his life for us, sacrificed everything so that we could live. In this, Elsa separates herself from her sister Anna because of fear of hurting her, which was out of love, and then at the end, Anna's curse, or whatever, was broken when she stepped in front of Elsa when Hans was trying to strike her (Elsa) with a dagger. The movie ends with everything resolving not because a prince kissed the helpless girl, but because of the bond of sisterhood. Throw in the fact that Let It Go is sung by
And a little added bonus. Ken was looking through our big box of pictures last night, and we found these little diddys. Our friends were over and they thought some were our kids, but really, just us as babies.
That's a baby Ken right there, looking JUST like Ivy.
That's a baby Melanie looking a lot like Eliza.
Eliza also looks a lot like Ken's sister Julie's baby pictures.
But the winner goes to toddler Melanie looking IDENTICAL to Avery. I mean, crazy!
Moral of the story: watch Frozen and make babies to look like you.
