Angela’s Christmas (Netflix)

I agree with this blogger’s review. It is a good show especially for younger children. Thank you Rachael at rpbooklist.wordpress.com for reviewing this short movie!

AngelasChristmas.jpgAngela’s Christmas is a cute Christmas story geared towards young children and based off of a book called Angela and the Baby Jesus by Frank McCourt. The movie tells the story of Angela who notices that the Baby Jesus in the manger has no clothes. Concerned he is cold, she steals him in an attempt warm him up.

While the movie is geared towards children, adults will enjoy watching the show with their child/children as Angela’s genuine sincerity as she tries to warm Baby Jesus will put a smile on your face. I will be putting it on my “favorites” list for those with young children.

Miraculous: Tales of Ladybug and Chat Noir, or just simply called Miraculous Ladybug, is about two young superheroes- Ladybug and Chat Noir- who defend Paris from citizens-turned-villain. These "akumatizations," the term for when a special butterfly called an akuma possesses an ordinary citizen, are the work of a super-villain named Hawk Moth, who desires the Miraculous of Ladybug and Chat Noir.

Thank you, Veterans

Gabby's Gabbing

Here is a poem from the bottom of my heart. It is dedicated to you, veterans, whether you served at home or overseas. And active military – I haven’t forgotten you. You deserve so much gratitude too! (Unintentional rhyme 🙂 )  Family of veterans- you provided so much support for your relatives- whether they are your parents, aunts, uncles, cousins, grandparents, great grandparents, great-great grandparents, E.T.C! You were their loving sta-bil-i-ty. (ETC rhymes with stability. Did you catch that? It started off as unintentional too 😀 ) 🙂

Thank you, veterans.

We can’t thank you enough.

You offered up your time,

Your limbs, or even your life.

You missed so many holi- and birth-days, working out on the field,

You sacrificed those days so the bad would yield.

How can we thank you, veterans?

You who gave so much?

How can we thank you, veterans?

You were there when times…
