five favourite family films

adventures-in-babysitting-remake-coming-to-disney-channelWhen I first began this blog over two years ago, I had a regular series entitled ‘Talkie Thursdays’. It was on this particular day of the week that I would list a movie that I had recently watched, and review it, in the most casual way that I know how. Not being one to recognize all of the hidden messages in films, I tend to have a more love it or hate it attitude. 

These are five films that I grew up with, and have recently watched, that centre on fun and families. It can go without saying that I also adore them.

1. Adventures in Babysitting (1987)

2. Mrs. Doubtfire (1993)

3. Beethoven (1992)

4. Uncle Buck (1989)

5. Now and Then (1995)

What are some of your favourite family films?

  2. Uncle Buck was one of my favorites too. John Candy was a real great entertainer. I wish he had stuck around even a little longer.

  3. Awww Now & Then! After I watched that movie I tried duck taping a radio to my bike so my friends and I could listen to music as we cruised around town. Thanks for the nostalgic throwback :)

    I’ve never even heard of Now and Then. Looks like I have some catching up to do :) Great list! Adventures in Babysitting has always been a fav! Nice!

  5. I grew up with all of these too! I’d add The Great Outdoors, Goonies, and Troop Beverly Hills to the list. I have seen The Goonies at least 20 times, and still notice new things every time.

  • Hello, friends. My name is Emory. I live on the Canadian prairies with my husband, daughter, and animals. Welcome!

  • Thank you to all those who liked, commented, and sent me messages yesterday. I am overwhelmed by your love. I would like to share one more thing. Since 2013, I have used my blog as a creative outlet and my Instagram account as my diary. I feel it’s a much better platform to reach out to others, and to be more truthful (if we dare). I try to only follow those who don’t always show the ups and highs of their “perfect” lives. While I think that the more popular, beige square, ad-infused, California chic, glam mother accounts are beautiful, I also find them to be depressing and unoriginal. A miscarriage is real. It is nothing to be ashamed of. If you don’t choose to discuss yours, that’s totally fine! I needed to share mine in order to begin my grieving and healing process. I am now a mother to two children. This is something that I did not want to, nor will I ever hide. Yes, our second child came much too early and did not survive, but that does not make his/her life any less worthy. Our baby was alive at one time. Our baby has a soul. Now, our baby has a name and will forever be part of our family. We are a family of four- three on earth and one angel in heaven. So, thanks again all. Sadness. What a difference a year can make. Last holiday season, Remy turned 10 months old. She had just gotten her first two teeth, and on Christmas morning, had learned to crawl. This year, we are mourning the loss of our second child. I suffered a miscarriage this week, and it has left a deep void in our family. This was going to be our Christmas card where we revealed to friends and family our joyous secret. Now, it remains one of our only photos as a family of four. Because of this, I want to share it with the world. Give your children an extra hug and kiss for me tonight. You are so blessed to have them. All my love, Emory.
