|CC rebuilds the "Frozen" landscape.|
Ever since we saw Disney's latest animated film Frozen, CC has been talking about sisters Elsa and Anna, Sven the reindeer and Olaf the snowman.
Let's just say, it made an impact. She already wants to see the film again. (You can check out our video review of the movie here.)
What was even better was when she used her amazingly vibrant imagination (yes, I'm her mom; I brag sometimes) to re-create the icy snowscape from the movie during play time.
She gathered up her wooden blocks and built the town of Arendelle, where the sisters are from, and placed one of Will's white blankets on top of a step stool to make Elsa's ice castle.
It was pretty creative, I have to say. She even built a makeshift sleigh with a little Sven made of wooden blocks!

When I talked to CC about the movie -- and how brave and persistent the characters were -- I asked her if she's ever been scared of something that she later overcame (not in those exact words, but you know).
"When I had my first spelling test," she said. (That was this year in 1st grade.)
"And what did you do to keep going, even though you were nervous?" I asked.
"I just did it. Now it's really easy."
Just like Anna, trekking up that mountain with Kristoff and Sven. She just did it.
