May I be the first...

to recommend the new Disney movie, The Princess and the Frog!  What a delight!  It truly was as advertised; ready to take its place among the other Disney classics.  A true test for me was that, as I was entranced by its charm, I also had the thought "I can't wait 'til this comes out on video".



I think among all my favorite parts, and there are many, there was a particularly magical scene with fireflies lighting the way through the bayou.  You must see this; amazing!

And the music was delightful.  As Miranda commented, "It's nice to have some new Disney music to fall in love with".

I think the most lasting influence of this movie will be that I think I will finally find a way to make it to New Orleans.  It is funny how some places continue to drop mental invitations until I succomb to their persistence.  It has been that way with New Orleans.  I have received several promptings lately, reminding me that this is one classic destination that has alluded me thus far.  That will have to change...

I liked the music. Especially Mama Odie's song. I'm still singing "Don' matta whatcha look like..."

I am planning on seeing it sometime. Erica said it was great.

P.S. I'd love to show you how to do the picture title.

Ivon and I were in New Orleans the week after Thanksgiving. We spent the night there. It was a very interesting place with LOTS of character and charm. Now I have to see the movie you fell in love with!

I loved the hotel we stayed at when I went there for Steph's 30th. If you need any recommendations, talk with Steph or I and we'll fill you in on some must do's. :-)

I LOVE New Orleans! It was a place I always wanted to visit and I'm so glad I did. Laura and I went in March and the weather was perfect. And our hotel was AMAZING!

I'm excited to see this movie. I'm taking my nieces this week to see it.
