PLOT:

via Marvista Entertainment:

Elise MacReynolds is no fan of Christmas. Growing up on a tree farm meant every holiday was spent selling Christmas trees on a cold street corner. But when she loses her job and her dad breaks his leg, Elise agrees to run the family tree stand for one last season. Unfortunately for Elise, the family business that has always hosted the MacReynolds' Farms tree lot has been acquired by home decor conglomerate Brook Glen Elise gets off on the wrong foot with surly Brook Glen CEO Gary Dixon when she almost knocks him down while unloading a big tree. Gary thinks the trees are bad for business and sets in motion a plan to get rid of the lot, for good. Despite her battles with Gary, Elise finds herself catching the holiday spirit as she helps the denizens of NYC find their one perfect tree: Everyone from a baby-on-the-way couple, to a professional basketball team, to a young boy picking out his first tree. Christmas also proves to be the season for romance when charming repeat customer Darren admits he's been buying trees simply in the hopes of talking to Elise. But when Gary convinces the NYFD to impound the trees and shut down the lot, Elise must find a way to crack his scrooge exterior and make up for lost time. Can Elise pull off a Christmas Eve miracle in time to save the family business? With help from her new beau, family, friends and customers, and a little holiday magic, she just may have a shot.

"Duck the Halls" Christmas CD - featuring the Robertson family of Duck Dynasty

We were so excited when we first learned in the early part of June that the cast of Duck Dynasty would be creating a Christmas CD. It seems our entire family enjoys their half-hour shows on the A&E network, their personal stories, funny moments, faith in God, commitment to family, and Hey, .... Uncle Si!

Duck the Halls: A Robertson Family Christmas

A Christmas CD - with the cast of Duck Dynasty!

Available: October 29, 2013

CD to be released through Universal Music Group Nashville.

*The creation of this Christmas CD was first announced at the CMA Music Festival (pictured above!)

Duck Commander CEO, Willie Robertson told Entertainment Tonight, “Faith, family and ducks — in that order — have always been our priorities. Christmas is an important holiday for us not only because of our strong faith but also our holiday family traditions. We’re having a great time making this album. We hope you enjoy it.” (info via: kyxy 96.5)

Korie Robertson added, "The whole family is going to be involved. It'll be kind of a variety show-style music CD, and we've got some surprises for you. So it's going to be a lot of fun." (info via: examiner.com)

So…. Who exactly will be participating? From information we have gathered on the internet – it looks like the entire family will be involved to some degree – from the oldest to the young ones, too! Singing on the CD, will be: Willie, Korie, Jase, Missy, Phil, Miss Kay, Uncle Si, and the rest of the Robertson family… including the grandkids!

Here are a few images of the family recording in studio...

"Pete's Christmas" starring Zachary Gordon and Bailee Madison


MOVIE REVIEW

Pete's Christmas

Network: Hallmark Channel

Original Air Date: November 8, 2013








CAST:

Zachary Gordon ... Pete Kidder
Bailee Madison ... Katie
Bruce Dern ... Grandpa
Molly Parker
Rick Roberts
Wesley Morgan ... Jake
Peter DaCunha ... Kenny

you may recognize...
*Zachary Gordon from the "Diary of a Wimpy Kid" Movies.
*Bailee Madison from "Smart Cookies", "Taste of Romance", "Parental Guiance", etc...
*Peter DaCunha from "Mistletoe over Manhattan", "Home Alone: the Holiday Heist", etc...
*Rick Roberts from "Eloise at Christmastime", "The Note", "The Town Christmas Forgot", "The Night before The Night Before Christmas", etc...


PLOT:

At fourteen, Pete Kidder (Gordon) is sick of being the middle child in his family, always overlooked by his parents (Parker and Roberts). Unlike his brothers, jock Jake (Wesley Morgan, “The Rocker”) and bookworm Kenny, (Peter DaCunha, “A Dark Truth), Pete hasn’t yet developed a distinct personality that sets him apart, and he often feels left out. With the kids’ grumpy grandfather (Dern) unexpectedly in town for Christmas, the pressure is on to make the day as great as Grandpa remembers with his late wife, but the holiday is filled with disastrous moments, including a toppling Christmas tree and a bout with food poisoning. Just when things can’t get any worse, Pete wakes up the next day and realizes he’s reliving December 25th all over again. Stuck repeating the day over and over, Pete panics, but slowly realizes, with the help of his new friend and next door neighbor, Katie (Madison), that he can use his unique gift for good and give this Christmas day the do-over it deserves.

“Pete’s Christmas” is an Eh-Okay Productions / Pete’s Christmas Productions Inc. in association with OutPost Media Inc. presented by Arc Entertainment, Walden Media, WalMart and Procter & Gamble.





Movie Review:

Pete’s Christmas was everything I expected it to be! There were definite similarities to the ABC Family Movie “Christmas Everyday” starring Erik Von Detten, yet since I already expected it- I didn’t mind it all. Instead of Basketball, Pete had some trouble with football and in “Christmas Everyday” the father and brother are having a disagreement, and in Pete’s Christmas it’s the father and the Grandpa.

I also saw things that reminded me of “Home Alone”, too…. The pizza delivery boy bringing the stack of pizzas and the younger brother drinking too much and wetting the bed. Also, in one scene Pete and his Grandfather decide to lick a pole, just like “A Christmas Story”.

I thought it was an interesting story about this family. Pete was such a real character, with relatable everyday problems and an usual problem, too… of re-living Christmas Day over & over!

I enjoyed the movie with my family and the great "unexpected" message behind it! I don’t want to give it away, but a small empty box, given to Pete, from his Grandfather will, in the end, give you the answer to true happiness!


See or Skip:

See, if you love Christmas Everyday and Diary of a Wimpy Kid. If so, you will sit back, laugh, and enjoy this movie, too!

Family Friendly!
