Toy Story 3

Toy Story One entered our lives in 1995....Jared was 1 yo, Jamin was 4 - the perfect Toy Story Age.....I can remember scouring the shelves for a Woody....ah the fun memories.


Today, Toy Story 3 hit Misawa Air Base. We will be out all day tomorrow. I dreaded trying an Opening Day showing, but knew if I didn't do it today, we might miss a movie the kids were looking forward to (Ok, me too). We went to the 3 p.m. showing. No line at all, lots of space in the theater......

Great movie....I knew it might tug on the heart strings a bit as Andy is going away...but I was NOT prepared to have a memory loop of Jamin at four running through my mind during the whole movie....and I lost it totally when Mom saw his empty room, Andy driving away......Ah man...growing up is GREAT and we long for our children to be functioning members of society....but  I sure miss those days when we had all the chicks at home in the nest.

If you had a Woody Lover, your husband is deployed and your Woody Lover is thousands of miles away....take kleenex....but come to think of it....many with children in college wouldn't have the excuse of a pre-schooler to take the movie to and may not even go. ::snort::  I think God is letting me live a rather extended childhood through the past few decades. LOL

Thanks for the warning! :)

We have young ones at home and our first is heading off to college this fall. We'll be seeing the movie this weekend and I'm glad to be prepared!

One doesn't need a preschooler to see Toy Story. We went this weekend with a 10, 11 and 15yo...... loved it. cried at the end

Yeah, I just think about mine leaving and can start to bawl. I guess I should plan on a "no make-up" day when watching this movie!

Yes! Having a little one around at this age in life is really my 2nd childhood - and I'm enjoying it a lot!

Yes, Kim, exactly. Love the new photo.
