Last but not least for Caturday my precious Tuesday, my Russian blue baby. She loves napping in the sun.
Buddy loves his meow mix so much that he sings the meow mix jingle at the door until I give it to him.
Apparently Mystery doesn't want me to put clothes in my laundry basket. Lol. I love this sweet baby! Happy Caturday!
Twitches is a Disney Channel Original Halloween Movie that my kiddo and myself like to watch every year during Disney Channel "Monstober". It has my two favorite twins in it, Tia Mowry -Hardrict and Tamara Mowry-Housley. They both discover they are witches. I think Amelia from my book, Amelia and the Secret of Stoney Manor, could relate to them and would love this movie don't you. Ha ha ;)
I give Twitches 5 out of 5 stars as it is definitely a favorite of my family. Kuddos to everyone involved. "Go Twitches! Go Twitches!" This movie has a great story line with some quite funny moments, fantastic characters, and some neat effects. I love the moral behind it too.
Moral: Love is stronger than fear and to quote the movie, "Love is infinite. You can always make more when you need it."
Illeana: You defeated the darkness once before.
Camryn Barnes: You mean when I was one? All I did was cry, and wet myself and wonder "What the heck is going on?" Apart from gaining some decent bladder control, nothing has changed!
Illeana: I just walked through some '70s wallpaper that will leave me seriously scarred for life!
Karsh: You just double-dipped, you ruined the entire dip- just go, just... go.
I love the music on the movie too. Please enjoy "Rush" from Twitches performed by Ally & AJ. I included the movie trailer at the bottom of this as I always do. Enjoy!
(Tia, I would love to interview you about your cooking show. I also hope to work with both of you, Tia and Tamara, one day. :) )
FreeForm's "13th Nights of Halloween" starts tonight. Who all is going to watch Hocus Pocus? I know I am since I watch it every year. Here is my review of it.
If you were to ask a random passerby on the street if they have seen the movie Hocus Pocus they would more than likely say they had. It is definitely a Disney classic that one must watch when October rolls around.
I love the fact that it is a clean movie that I can watch with my 6 year old without fear of it being too scary. We both cackle and giggle as we watch three centuries old witches, Winifred, Sarah, and Mary, try to navigate through the modern day 90's. We hiss as they turn poor Thackery Binx into a cat ,but cheer as Max, Dani, Allison, and Binx try and thwart the efforts of the Sanderson sisters as they try to collect the children in the town's life force. And if you know Disney then you know their movies are going to have music. You better believe my son and I belt it out loud when "I Put A Spell on You" comes on. I give this movie 5 out of 5 stars as it a movie the whole family can enjoy. If you haven't seen it then you need to watch it today. I promise you it will put its spell on you and have you coming back to watch it for years to come. (Btw, who had a crush on Thackery Binx when they were growing up. I know I did. ;) )
Sarah: [singing in the sky] Come little children, I'll take thee away / Into a land of enchantment / Come little children, the times come to play / Here in my garden of magic. (YES, I sing with this one too. )
Winifred: Sisters, All Hallow's Eve has become a night of frolic, where children wear costumes and run amok!
Sarah: Amok, amok, amok, amok, amok.
[Winifred punches Sarah in the stomach]
[Sarah is pushed onto the "black river", but lands straight up]
Sarah: 'Tis firm! 'Tis firm as stone!
Winifred: Why, it's a road!
Please enjoy this Hocus Pocus Parody by The Hillywood Show. ****Hilly Hindi and Hannah Hindi if you see this we love your work and would love to interview you. :) ***
(Btw, if you and your friends have dressed as the Sanderson Sisters we would love to share your photos on here.)

I remember seeing this movie when it was in theaters. I loved it then and still love it to this day. I give it 5 out of 5 stars as I love the thought provoking aspect in it and the moral behind it. It's a movie about a man finding his faith again. M. Night Shyamalan, one of my favorite directors, directed this. I love the emotion that pours from his movies and this one is no different. All the emotions in Signs make his characters easy to relate to as you could see yourself in their shoes. Awesome job M. Night Shyamalan. I hope to work with you one day. :) Bravo to the entire cast, as well, for a great performance. (On a side note: Wasn't Abigail Breslin adorable in this movie!)
Everything happens for a reason. There are no coincidences. Good can be found even in the darkest of situations.
Graham Hess: People break down into two groups. When they experience something lucky, group number one sees it as more than luck, more than coincidence. They see it as a sign, evidence, that there is someone up there, watching out for them. Group number two sees it as just pure luck. Just a happy turn of chance. I'm sure the people in group number two are looking at those fourteen lights in a very suspicious way. For them, the situation is a fifty-fifty. Could be bad, could be good. But deep down, they feel that whatever happens, they're on their own. And that fills them with fear. Yeah, there are those people. But there's a whole lot of people in group number one. When they see those fourteen lights, they're looking at a miracle. And deep down, they feel that whatever's going to happen, there will be someone there to help them. And that fills them with hope. See what you have to ask yourself is what kind of person are you? Are you the kind that sees signs, that sees miracles? Or do you believe that people just get lucky? Or, look at the question this way: Is it possible that there are no coincidences?
Graham Hess: Ahh! I'm insane with anger!
Merrill: There are a lot of things I can take, and some things I can't. But what I can't take is when my older brother, who's everything that I want to be, starts losing faith in things. I saw that look in your eyes last night. I don't ever want to see that look in your eyes again.
A house shrouded in mystery.....a grumpy, old, reclusive neighbor.....possible murder. Sound intriguing enough to watch yet?
Monster House is a favorite October movie in my house that we watch every year. Every time I watch this it makes me of think of Rear Window with James Stewart in it...a childlike version of Rear Window anyway. DJ and Chowder spy some weird goings on across the street through a telescope in Dj's room. They soon learn the horrifying truth that the house is ALIVE.With the help of their new friend, Jenny, they must discover the secrets that are trapped inside before it's too late.
With the voice talents of an all star cast and a story that draws you in from the very beginning I give this movie 5 out of 5 stars. I definitely recommend Monster House as one of your Halloween movies to watch this year. As far as the little kid scare factor goes my 6 old did jump a little when the house came to life, but after some reassurance it is "just pretend" he was fine. Just be aware.
Chowder: I paid 28 dollars for that ball! I had to mow ten lawns and ask my mom for a dollar 26 times!
DJ: I've just... murdered a guy!
Chowder: Naw... when it's an accident, it's called manslaughter.
Chowder: (whispering) It mocks us with its... *house-ness*!
Officer Lister: That sounds like the 'dangerous creature'! I'm gonna go check it out.
[sneaks toward the house]
Officer Landers: Gosh, just like tryin' to wrangle a puppy...
Nice job to all who worked on this movie!
I give this movie 5 out of 5 stars as this was a very creative and intriguing idea for a movie. It is Frankenstein meets Pet Cemetery. As far as the little kid scare factor goes my 5 year old liked it as a whole, but some things did freak him out a little so be aware.
The moral: What makes us different makes us unique not scary....and MAYBE the very beings that scare us are really just misunderstood.
Mr. Rzykruski: Science is not good or bad, Victor. But it can be used both ways. That is why you must always be careful.
Mrs. Frankenstien: When you loose someone you love they move into a special place in your heart.
Nice job to all who worked on this movie.
Mr. Burton I want to work with you one day. I hope you will be directing a movie based on one of my books in the future. :)
Saturdays are for.....
