From reading my blogs you know I have boys, there is only one girl in the family and that is me. These boys are 100 percent farm raised boys, they love the animals, the tractors and even the work that the farm brings. I would have never thought that one movie would change our lives as much as Frozen has. On long car trips to visit the family what do we watch? Disney’s Frozen. Max (6 years old) loves Frozen so much that he spends his time on the iPad watching Frozen videos of kids singing the songs or playing Frozen games. Our lives have been filled with the Let it Go song. During a before school shopping trip, Max found an Olaf shirt and he had to have it. I thought he would grow out of the movie, but what the heck it’s just a snowman shirt.
For those of you that have never seen the movie, Olaf is a snowman that the princess makes to play with. He has some pretty good jokes in the movie and even Ryan and I like Olaf. There are some cute songs in the movie and lately there have been some awesome parodies of the Let it Go song and even a great farm parody to the song Do you want to build a snowman? called Do you want to ride in my tractor? I would suggest watching that one. YouTube has been Max’s first click on the iPad for weeks. It isn’t uncommon to hear him break out in song every once and a while. If it isn’t a Frozen song it is usually International Harvester by Craig Morgan or Cruise by Florida Georgia Line (but only if it is not the Nelly remix).
We were really starting to think the Frozen craze was coming to an end but October 4 changed everything. It was a typical Saturday morning, except I finally didn’t have to work and could have slept until 9 a.m. except a little boy jumped in my bed and broke into song….
“DO YOU WANT TO BUILD A SNOWMAN? DO YOU WANT TO COME OUT AND PLAY?”
Me: “Max please it is the first weekend in a long time I could sleep in, just come rest with me.”
Max: “But it snowed outside and I want to build an Olaf!”
Well, we built our very first Olaf of the winter season, good thing he only lasted a day. But, I bet there are lots of Olafs in our future.
