I was also delighted by some figure skaters that were not Canadian. American Ashley Wagner was so beautiful to watch. She was very graceful in her movements.

Sinead Kerr & John Kerr are the British champions. They were exceptional and the skating mixed with the music was incredibly powerful. I could definitely see why they are champions.

But you know what?! I went with all the intention of screaming the loudest for Kurt Browning.
For his whole career I have been a fan. So to have the opportunity to watch him skate, let alone skate to "Singin' In The Rain", (which I got to see him perform twice in a row!), I was in awe. Here is a little teaser video for you all.



I also had my heart stolen during the last olympics. Remember, Canadian olympian Joannie Rochette lost her mom. When she performed her routine during the olympics, I cried. Oh, how I cried. And to see her last night, looking like an angel, I had to choke back the emotion.
Her mom is definitely looking down on her very proudly.

That brings me to the sponsors from last night. Investors Group, Lindt and World Vision.
As these skaters have wonderful families and sponsors to help them on their journey to competitions and shows, there are places like World Vision that help those who don't have that support that every child needs.  A commercial was played at intermission, and I couldn't help but cry. Sad to think of what we take for granted, and all over there are children who need, even just a nudge of love and emotional support. I was able to give a small donation after the show, but it's not enough. I hope you reading may find time or money to give too.

And now to close, I want to thank Jergens for the most amazing experience a lady could ask for. I have memories that will never be replaced, and a swipe off my bucket list. Also a huge thanks for the goodies that were handed out! You're the best!

REVIEW:
Such great animation!
There was always something going on in this movie. Even though it was a story I have seen played out a million times and a million different ways, they all are different too. This had more of a story. It was very magical and is definitely fun for the whole family.
Want to point out, Max, the dog, stole the show for me. He is so adorable, even if animation. Such a good dog.
This is one of those Christmas movies that you really can enjoy all year round. It has enough laughs, fun and morals to be played anytime. Plus there is nothing wrong with Christmas cheer in February.

REVIEW:
A superbly made movie!!
Seriously, the scenes were pretty phenomenal. It made for some pretty intense moments along the way. The space scenes were incredible. I loved how much real footage they used as well.
I thought I knew a lot about the moon landing of '69, though it was 8 years before my time. Even thought I knew a far amount about Neil Armstrong, but after watching this film, I realize I knew nothing at all. Had no idea he was up in the atmosphere so many times before the famous landing, but alas, he was. It really was a wonderful depiction of such an iconic event.
I also didn't know he had suffered such loss. It seemed …
