“When You Hold My Hand I Feel So Grand” Precious Moments Review

Precious Moments figures have always held a special place in my heart. For as long as I can remember, my grandmother collected Precious Moments. She had figures to commemorate special occasions such as birthdays, anniversaries, holidays, and more. I always enjoyed admiring her Precious Moments collection when I went to visit her. Each of the figures were adorable and shared a message of love – whether it be the love of a spouse, mother, child, or God’s love. When my grandmother passed away, I was given a few of her Precious Moments figures to remember her by. They now decorate several rooms in my home. Whenever I see a beautiful Precious Moments figure, I am reminded of her and the love she had for her family.

Welcome to this month’s Blogorail Orange Loop. Today we are sharing our Disney Bucket Lists and what you should add to yours.


There are so many fun and unique experiences on my Disney bucket list – dining at Club 33, visiting Walt’s Disneyland apartment, touring the Cinderella Castle Dream Suite…and the list goes on and on. At the top of my Disney bucket list is what I think may be the best way to experience all of the magic Disney has brought to the world. Someday I hope to visit all six Disney resorts around the world. While many of the parks feature similar attractions, each Disney resort is unique in its own way and offers an experience you can only get at that particular resort.

Pete’s Dragon Digital HD Giveaway

Pete's Dragon Digital HD Giveaway

© Disney

Available on Blu-ray™, Digital HD + Disney Movies Anywhere November 29th!

For years, old wood carver Mr. Meacham (Robert Redford) has delighted local children with his tales of the fierce dragon that resides deep in the woods of the Pacific Northwest. To his daughter, Grace (Bryce Dallas Howard), who works as a forest ranger, these stories are little more than tall tales…until she meets Pete (Oakes Fegley). Pete is a mysterious 10-year-old with no family and no home who claims to live in the woods with a giant, green dragon named Elliot. And from Pete’s descriptions, Elliot seems remarkably similar to the dragon from Mr. Meacham’s stories. With the help of Natalie (Oona Laurence), an 11-year-old girl whose father Jack (Wes Bentley) owns the local lumber mill, Grace sets out to determine where Pete came from, where he belongs, and the truth about this dragon.

Families will be captivated by this magical movie followed by never-before-seen bonus features, including a revealing look at director David Lowery’s personal diary kept during the filming of “Pete’s Dragon,” the design process behind the lovable dragon Elliot, deleted scenes, a tour of the film’s breathtaking production location of New Zealand, audio commentary by filmmakers and actors and hilarious bloopers.

“Pete’s Dragon” stars Bryce Dallas Howard (“Jurassic World”) as Grace, a forest ranger in the Pacific Northwest who happens upon 10-year-old Pete, played by Oakes Fegley (“This is Where I Leave You”). Oona Laurence (“Southpaw”) is Natalie, the 11-year-old daughter of Jack, a lumber-mill owner played by Wes Bentley (“The Hunger Games”). Karl Urban (“Star Trek”) is Jack’s bumbling brother Gavin and Oscar®-winner Robert Redford (“Captain America: The Winter Soldier”) portrays Mr. Meacham, an old wood carver who delights the local children with tales of a fierce dragon.
