The Ultimate Life

This touching story of hope, love and family values is the much anticipated follow-up to the heartwarming film and best-selling book The Ultimate Gift. Three years after receiving life-changing gifts from his grandfather Red, Jason Stevens finds himself in need of guidance once again. When the foundation his grandfather left him is challenged in a courtroom battle, and the love of his life travels to Haiti to support a hospital in need, Jason realizes he's lost all direction. But just when it looks as though he may lose it all, he discovers his grandfather's precious journal. With everything he loves hanging in the balance, Jason embarks on an incredible journey into the past - through the journal - to learn what it truly means to live...THE ULTIMATE LIFE.

REVIEW:

More than meets the eye.
When I first saw the disc and read the synopsis fully along with seeing the stills from the film, I wasn't so sure it was going to be as good as I initially hoped. I admit, being a Peter Fonda fan, he is a HUGE part of why I wanted to see it. At this point, it looked like a made-for-tv movie to me.
Man, I was wrong!
Charming, heartwarming, emotional, and lovely are just some of the words I can use to describe this movie. Circled around the life of an incredible man, his story is told from his journal through the eyes of his grandson. He is passed on when this happens, which puts more emphasis on it all too. 
I tell ya, this movie has the same qualities of 'The Notebook' or 'Big Fish'. That story within a story, with love, so much love. Gets me every time.
This movie has such a strong message of love and importance of family relationships. It's also romantic enough for date night. I just really loved it!

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.

#ChristmasInJuly #Win A Onesie Or Pajamas Of Your Choice! (US/CDN)

The most wonderful time of the year is back, (a little early)! It's Christmas in July!! You too can celebrate with a wonderful gift right here. UglyChristmasSweater.com has the funniest, traditional and branded goodies on the planet! Here is a sneak peek at a couple of things I personally love on their site.

Last year, I reviewed one of the sweaters. You can view that post here. It is easily my favorite holiday sweater. It's so warm and I love the quality of it. This year, I was asked if I wanted a onesie or pajamas to check out. You know I had to jump at the chance, knowing what great quality clothing they have.

I got the Grinch on my onesie! I got an extra large size, and before you go crazy knowing that is big for me, I don't like my pjs to be tight and constricting. I always go a size up on my night clothes. I must have been traumatized in a past life.... These Grinch pajamas are soooooo soft and comfortable. The best part is that it's A/C season so I can actually wher…
