Darrion tagged my for the #OneLastTime Award.  Thanks you, Darrion; I appreciate it:)

The Rules;)
1. You Must be tagged to take the Q&A quiz
2. You must tag(notify)at least three other bloggers(or whatever they are on)for this Q&A
3. You must answer the following questions to the best of your ability
4. You must have seen The Battle of the Five Armies to be tagged/take the quiz

(don't read unless you have seen the movie; there will be *SPOILERS*)

1. Tell your story of how you came to see the movie(s) or got into Tolkien in the first place.
I was about eight when I started watching the LOTR movies with my dad.  My dad had to see if out DVD player worked, and so he put in LOTR to check.  Every time he would check the DVD player he would always put LOTR in.  That's how I got into LOTR.  Then several years later, I found the Hobbit book in my mom's bookshelf.  I read it and really enjoyed it.  More several years later, I heard that Peter Jackson was coming out with the Hobbit trilogy.

2. Who are your three favorite characters in the Hobbit Trilogy?
Thorin, Fili, and Kili

3. Did you cry in the Battle of the Five Armies, and if so, which scene(s) and what type(sniffling, sobbing, choke-crying)? 
Yes, I did(no way, right?)  ;)  Well, I got teary-eyed during the Bard and Bain scene in the tower,(because who doesn't tear up at a father/son scene?).  I had tears flowing like fountains during the Durins's deaths and when Bilbo was crying(obviously).  I didn't make any sounds while crying, but my cheeks were constantly wet.

4. Were the deaths compelling to you, and if so, who's?
Fili was so brave in his last soul...and when he said, "Go, Run!"...*tears*...Oh. the. feels. when Fili fell in front of his brother:(
I agree with Darrion, I was more sad when Kili died then heartbroken when Fili died, because Kili's so young and you wouldn't expect him to have such a brutal death*weeping in the background*  Kili has always been the mischievous one of the company, the lighthearted, and the reckless one.  It pained me to see him in so much pain.  But who am I to talk, talk about Fili..*may he rest in peace*  The moment when Fili stops Kili from going into the tunnel and tells him, "I got this.", I knew exactly what was going to happen.  And then when Azog drags him out...just...*choking here*...just noooo!  Then Kili goes insane for his brother*weeps*  When Thorin said, "I'm glad you're here.", to Bilbo I just about lost it.  I lost it completely when Bilbo started crying*sniffle*

5. Over all, were you satisfied with the movie itself?
Yes, I love the movie!  It was better then I ever expected it to be=D

6. Describe the movie in one word.

I tag...

Merry Christmas BTW=D

The Twelve Days of Thanksgiving

Thank you, Megan, for tagging me!  Awww, Frodo, Thanksgiving...*sorry just had to*  Apple Cider, Cranberry Bread, Pumpkin Pie, Candy-Corn, etc...  I love Thanksgiving!  Although we need to remember to be thankful all the time, Thanksgiving is a nice reminder to give thanks to the Lord:)  *and it's not just about food*

1) My family!  I don't know what I would do without my AWESOME familyXD  They are the best and they've always been there for me=D  Love you, Fam!

2) My Bible!  There are some many wonderful verses that I love to go to for comfort=D

3) My Savior!  Thank you, Jesus, for coming down to this sinful and wicked earth to save us from our sins:)

4) Books!  Books make my imagination bigger, better, and brighter=D  I could read books all day and get lost in worlds of imaginationXD

5) My Friends/Blog Friends;)!  I just want you all to know that I hold each and every one of you dear to me!

6) The Ransom, the Interlock, and The Extremity!  They are books, but thought I'd mention them since I am thankful for themXD

7) Woods, forests, trees, grass, leaves, forest floor, etc with natureXD

8) My deer friends and cat friends=D

9), not the tornado kind of storms that make destruction.  When the the sky grows dark and it becomes 'calm before the storm' kind of storms;)  So I guess I could say I'm thankful for the 'calm before the storms':)  If no one understands, Megan, I'm sure you will=D

10) Soundtracks/Music!  There's just something about music that gives me stunning, vibrating, and wonderful chills in me:)  I could listen to music all day=D

11) Tolkien and Peter Jackson!  *don't laugh*  XD  Tolkien wrote us lovely stories and P.J. made them come alive!  Thank you, Tolkien and P.J.=D

12) The R family!  They are such a blessing to us(I think I can speak for my whole family:)  We've known their family ever since I can remember and I have a special friendship with each and every one of theXD

I now tag Knight of the Prince and Lili;)  You both don't have to tag anyone else since this is the Thanksgiving tag.  But anyone who wishes to participate, may join in a comment:)

Praise You In This Storm-By Casting Crown

 I was sure by now, God You would have reached down

 And wiped our tears away

Stepped in and saved the day

But once again, I say, "Amen",

and it's still raining

As the thunder rolls, I barley hear Your whisper through the rain

"I'm with you"

...and takes away 

For You are who You are, no matter where I am 

And every tear I've cried, You hold in Your hand

You never left my side, 

I remember when I stumbled in the wind

You heard my cry to you, and you raised me up again

If I can't find You

But as the thunder rolls, I barley hear Your whisper through the rain

"I'm with you"

...and takes away

I will lift my hands

For You are who You are, no matter where I am 

And every tear I've cried, You hold in Your hand

You never left my side,

'Eye' Love Jesus!

(p.s. this is not my eye;)
Corinthians 4:18
"So we fix our eye not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen in temporary, but what is unseen is eternal."

City On Our Knees-By Toby Mac

If you gotta start somewhere why not here

If you gotta start sometime why not now

If we gotta start somewhere I say here

If we gotta start sometime I say now

Through the fog there is hope in the distance

From cathedrals to third world missions

Love will fall to the earth like a crashing wave

Tonight's the night

For the sinners and the saints

Two worlds collide in a beautiful display

It's all love tonight

When we step across the line

We can sail across the sea

To a city with one king

A city on our knees

A city on our knees

Bonus for those of you who sang this song as you read through this post:)

New Hobbit 3 Posters

Did anyone notice the Durins fighting just above the 'Hobbit' words?  Then there's Gandalf giving a death glare, Bilbo looking extremely brave, Bard looking so grim in knowing what is to come, the elves all together, Azog being creepy, the dragon, the Lonely Mountain, the eagles, Dale, EEEEEKKK!
...and then there's Thorin looking...can we all say it together?...MAJESTIC...yet he looks somewhat sad:(

Poor Thorin.  He looks like he's having a flashback; probably about Frerin*tear*...which, btw, needs to be in the Battle of Five Armies

Do you all remember the 'grim faced warrior' in the book?  Well, the first time I saw Bard I was thinking, "That's the grim-faced warrior!"

I really like Thranduil's armor:)  Elven armies are just so graceful and gorgeous in the sun

Wouldn't that stink if Gandalf died?  ;)  Phfft...I like how this poster doesn't look cheesy.  Galadriel doesn't look like, "Eh, help me I'm going to die."  No, she looks like she is seriously concerned for Gandalf.  Her face reads, "If either of us make it out, it as to be you."

I think it's funny how the trailer makes us so concerned for Gandalf:)  Will he die?  Or will he not?  Hmm, nice try;)

not. okay.

Who else needs a trailer?  =D
