Things Change

In 1995 the first Toy Story came out and our first born was 5 years old. She fell in love with the toys, their personalities and their adventures.

Another movie followed in 1999 our youngest just 2, our middle one 5 and our first born 9. We had many of the toys in our house by this time and the movie played on the TV over and over.

Tonight we went to the drive-in to see Toy Story 3 and it became something we couldn't have imagined. See Andy is all grown up now and it is the end of his childhood. Sitting next to me was our first born, who turns 20 next month. It was for her, and us, the end of one season and the beginning of another rolling right in front of us on a huge screen.

Hannah and I both shed a tear. The sweetness of Andy passing his toys on, but not forgetting the happy childhood he had. As our oldest moves from one season to another I can rejoice that she has had a happy childhood and moves into adulthood with wonderful, precious memories.

Go see the movie, you may shed a tear also...

the siblings.

Or act goofy and cute like the two younger ones!!
