So I haven’t really talked a lot about my family on here. I tend to try and stay away from making posts about people I know as if they ever read this I don’t want them getting upset with me. So I have two older siblings, Paige and Holly. Now I love Sleeping Beauty a lot, in fact Aurora is my favorite princess (second to Princess Leia). I wanted to be her (and was for two Halloweens) and used to act it out every year. Now I don’t know if my sister Paige was trying to be mean to me or create a bond between the three of us girls (when I was a little girl I always thought it was the first one), but she would tell me that I couldn’t be Aurora I had to be Merryweather. Paige was to be the leader Flora, Holly Fauna, and I had to be Merryweather. Now as a kid I hadn’t having to be be her, but you know what, the older I get the more I realize what an awesome character she is. She is smart, caring, sassy, and just plain hilarious. And she sounds just like me.
Like wanting to turn the people you hate into a toad? I agree, let’s take them out.
She’s not afraid to speak her mind and give her opinion on things, although sometimes it bites her in the butt.
Plus you gotta love Merryweather for the fact that she’s the smartest of the three fairies. First of all she saves Aurora’s life.
And then saves it again
“Flora: I’ll turn her into a flower.
Flora: [chuckles] No, no, dear. The princess.
Fauna: Oh, she’d make a lovely flower.
Flora: Don’t you see? A flower can’t prick its finger.
Merryweather: It hasn’t any.
Fauna: That’s right.
Flora: She’ll be perfectly safe. Merryweather: Until Maleficent sends a frost.
Flora: [laughs, then stops abruptly] Yes… oh dear.”
Plus she is the only one who actually knows how to do any thing without her wand.
[preparing for Aurora’s birthday party]
Merryweather: But, I never baked a *fancy* cake.
Flora: Oh, you won’t have to, dear!
Fauna: *I’m* going to bake the cake!
Flora: Oh, she’s always wanted to, dear, and this is her last chance.
Merryweather: [doubtfully] Well…
Fauna: I’m going to make it 15 layers with pink and blue forget-me-nots.
Fauna: And *I’m* making the dress.
Merryweather: But you can’t sew! And she’s *never* cooked!”
Yep Merryweather’s been doing it all.
Plus Merryweather doesn’t care whether or not Aurora marries a prince, she just wants her to be happy.
“Merryweather: [irked] Ooh, I don’t see why she has to marry any old… prince!”
I don’t know about you all, but I’m excited for Christmas! If you couldn’t guess already I LOVE holidays and am so excited!!!!!!! EXCITED 😀
As you know I talked about doing an everyday movie post of my favorite Christmas films like I did for Halloween, but I won’t be able to do that until the 13th as I am in crunch time :0 for finals. I haven’t decided what exactly to call it, but thinking around the lines of the Merrymaking and Joy: The 12 Posts of Christmas, but that’s just a tentative title; I’m not fully in love with it and thinking of altering it.
Since I can’t give you a full length post just yet, I thought I’d leave you with a taste!
Even though I can’t stand Mr. Elton, I think he says a true fact about Christmas:
It’s so true. We’ve been having all kinds of storms where I live and yet I had a Christmas party and everyone came out to enjoy it; even braving these stormy elements.
One of the best things about Christmas is that fact that there is such joy and unity in the world. Everyone wants to hang out and spend time together; the parties, caroling, white elephanting, family gatherings, christmas cookies baking, christmas movie watching, etc!
So I hope you are preparing yourself and getting ready to countdown to one of the best holidays throughout the whole entire year.
