It’s Puzzling!

For this vacay day, I decided to pull out just a few of some of the David Archuleta related puzzles we have posted, and two new ones, to get your brain thinking at the start of the week!  And just to have a bit of fun.  After all we are (supposed to be) on vacation :)

First up from Janel from April 1, 2013.  A very comprehensive list!


Word list here!  I’ll post the solution tomorrow.

Last but not least …

And Joanie took the #ALSIceBucketChallenge!  In style, and with a Canadian accent no less!  She got suitably soaked and passed the baton to a few others including David from Texas and Karin/Zerogravity.  Awesome job Joanie!  Source

A Family Movie Adventure~ “How To Train Your Dragon 2″

How To Train Your Dragon 2 ~ Hiccup and Toothless

David’s family had a GREAT movie adventure together and it made an impact on him~

Ahhh a movie after my own heart!!! My family LOVES “How To Train your Dragon 1″ (yup, we own it) and had it not been for our uber B U S Y summer, we would have already seen the sequel which came out in June! Now I’m really motivated to see this sequel!!

How to train your dragon 1

In the first movie, a young Viking named “Hiccup”goes against the “grain” and becomes friends with a dragon named Toothless. Their friendship takes them on an unforgettable adventure and mission to protect all that’s important to them. If you haven’t seen it yet,  it’s a GREAT movie and I definitely suggest it no matter what your age.

In part 2, (which takes place 5 years later,) it sounds like there are big surprises in store for Hiccup, and he finds himself on a path to understand his family past and realize his destiny. I can already guess a few reasons why David may have “loved” it so much. :) Below is the Dream Works “How To Train Your Dragon 2″ Trailer.

Pocoelsy’s HTTYD with Zero Gravity!

David has a fan who has a HUGE passion for “How to Train Your Dragon” and David Archuleta music! Earlier this summer, Pocoelsy created a montage for the movie/sequel and without hesitation chose ZERO GRAVITY as the backdrop! :) Love it!

And back in 2010, “Welcome To my Channel” showcased Zero Gravity in this movie montage as well! (Great minds think alike!)

My dearrrrr friend and colleague Mary Lou Pastel may have nominated me to take the challenge as (we) were driving our daughter cross country to move her into college :( . Well, since I’m back, and it’s such an awesome chance to have fun while donating to a great cause that’s directly affected a few dear friends of mine, you might just see a vid pop up today or tomorrow…However, it most certainly won’t match the effort, creativity and grace of Mary Lou, Holly, Joy,Sunny, and of course David along with so many others. :)
