Little Red Riding Hood – Tiggerific Tuesday!

Little Red Riding Hood

The year: 1922. The series: “Laugh-O-Gram”. The title: “Little Red Riding Hood”.

Today, July 29, 2013, is the 91st anniversary of the release of the Laugh-O-Gram cartoon Little Red Riding Hood. Here it is straight from This Day in Disney History:

1922:
The first Laugh-O-Gram cartoon Little Red Riding Hood is released. A silent black & white short, it is written, produced, and directed by Walt Disney and animated by Rudolph Ising. It is considered Walt’s first full-length short cartoon as prior to this only minute-long cartoons have been produced.

Now, why don’t you enjoy the YouTube video of the cartoon? After that, make sure you check out the rest of the entries in this week’s Tiggerific Tuesday Trivia! Thanks as always goes to my friends Heidi from Heidi’s Head, Jenn from Disney Babies Blog, and Jodi from Magical Mouse Schoolhouse for co-hosting with me as well!

Prayers for the Week – Praises!

mdod-prayers of the week

 

Hello everyone, welcome to this week’s Prayers for the Week!  We’ve got a quick post today — but I have a few prayer requests and praises to share with you.  First, the praises!

Praises!

My biggest praise is that we have had a wonderful trip meeting and visiting with friends old and new.  It has been a relaxing, peaceful week and we have truly enjoyed our time here.  It ends today, though, as we head home, but it was a great trip!

We also give thanks for my niece Stephanie’s baby Zazzy, who had dog surgery last week and is recovering well.  Thanks, Lord, for all of our blessings, even the four-legged blessings such as Zazzy!

Prayer Requests!

Prayers for a safe journey home, thank you everyone.  Bigger prayers for my niece Stephanie, who has a surgical procedure on the 31st.  Lord, please be with her and guide the surgeons skillfully so that she can have this taken care of easily and please make it help her out.  Thank you Lord!

Thank you everyone for reading and praying for these prayer requests and praises!  Please leave your requests here and we’ll pick back up in force next week!  Thanks everyone!
