Warm & Fuzzy Weekend

Enough with the humor. Let's have a cry. 
This is the sweetest, most heartwarm-alicious video. Makes me tear up Every. Single. Time. (and no-he's not going to attack them.;)

Have a great weekend!

For just a second I thought Christian was going to have himself a manface taco.

JenniBeanV said...

I saw that on the news! It's sweet and a little frightening at the same time!

And LOL @sheildmaiden96 "manface taco" ::::snort::::

Brittany said...

OK, seriously, what kind of person does it make me to admit I totally thought he was going to eat them?

Pleasing Procrasinator said...

I came here thinking I would LOL and instead I got tears.
Great Post!!

Alice said...

Crap. My sister had JUST sent me that video. I'll cry again if I watch it. Sooo sweet.

Lynette said...

Awwww....you tricked me! I was expecting a good laugh, and got myself a good cry.

sinisterdan said...

I saw this video a few weeks ago, and was expecting carnage. The sweet, life-affirming message sickened me.

Gettysburg Mom said...

Awwwwww.....gush gush gush

Firefly said...

My BFF just sent me a much longer version of this video, but set to Whitney Houston singing "I Will Always Love You" - I like your version much better!! Thanks for "awww's" and tears to start my Friday!

ali said...

Love it! It's much better the second time you watch it. The first I saw it, I admit, I was a little nervous for them:)

Blessings From Above said...

Okay, I'm a big dork. I just watched this twice. I teared up the first time. Bawled the second time. This is so sweet!

Have a good weekend! :)

Diane said...

Oh my goodness, how ridiculously adorable!

While I was watching it, I was a little nervous that Christian was charging them to bite their face off. What a relief that wasn't the case!

Val said...

I saw this the other day....it was great! Hubby had me look it up on snoops because he didn't believe it was true. It totally is!

Mama Dawg said...

I've seen that on a couple of other blogs and I agree, it makes me cry as well.

mammadawg.com said...

My son and I were just watching this a couple days ago - it still makes my eyes water.

I LOVE seeing how giddy they are. All of them!

Tami said...

I hadn't seen that yet. It brought tears to my eyes! It's absolutly amazing!!

Kelly said...

When I first saw this I was like, "is this for real?" then I totally thought he was going to eat them. If you want to know more of the history, go to you tube, put in lion and in the side bar there are like 5 or 6 different 10 minute videos about getting him to africa, letting him go, etc...
It's heartbreaking in a zillion ways!

The Mom said...

I can see where everyone though (including me) that the guy was going to be dinner...did you hear about that guy that was studying bears and the last movie he shot he was a mansicle?

Okay i think that was true, but now i'm not sure.

Aubrey said...

No. Way.

I too thought they were going to be dinner & dessert.

I want a lion...

amanda said...

Totally thought this was going to be a practical joke... but well, it was totally sappy and fun! Love it. :) Made for a feel good Friday! :)

Kelly said...

omg, that is so sweet!

threeboys1mommy said...

Thanks for sharing that I had never seen it... for a moment I hoped you were lying about the no attack thing, but I guess that was equally gratifying.

Ann said...

Why?....Why do you make me cry?
It's just so sweet!!!

scargosun said...

Such love is so rare. I love how he mushes his face all over them, claiming them again as his won.

{Anissa} said...

Oh my God -- At first I did think it would eat them -- Love it that was a special moment.

Swirl Girl said...

Freak me out!
A better cat story than mine, for sure.

Kimberly said...

The bear story is true...they made a movie about it called Grizzly Man. From IMDB:

"For thirteen consecutive summers, the American Timothy Treadwell moved to Katmai in the Alaskan Peninsula to live among the grizzly bears, with the pretext of studying and protecting them. In 2003, his girlfriend Amie Huguenard and he were surprisingly attacked and eaten by a bear."

Which just goes to show ya, Mother Nature is a twisted ol' gal.

e.m. said...

That is crazy!!! Yes, I cried!

Tenakim said...

that is sweet! I've watched a documentary on Grizzly Man and he was fascinated by the bears, but he didn't raise them- I'll say it again- nurture vs nature.

Merrie said...

Darnit -- don't make me cry at work!!
*sniff*

Anonymous said...

I love this one!!! Just when I think that it's gonna get all sigfred and roy it turns into a love story-truly classic!!!! What's with the hairdos on those guys though-mabye the lion thought they were members of their tribe???

Lipstick said...

Love this video!!! How old is it? Did anyone else notice the console tv in one of the pics? I know everyone saw the hair and those tight ass pants.

Jen said...

That is one of my favorite videos. I get all choked up watching it no matter how many times I have seen it.

Jen said...

Awwww! sniffle, sniffle.

FlowerGirl said...

This is the first time I've seen this! It is the most precious thing! Totally made me tear up...

Russ said...

Was I the only one waiting for these guys to be eaten?

Russ said...

Am I horrible for asking that last question?

Kristi said...

I don't think I would have waited to see if he remembered me. That is freaky!

Scary Mommy said...

That is so damn sweet. Totally teared up too!

April said...

Allikaye's Mama said...

georgie said...

Such a heart-warming video-

B, Esq. said...

Maybe it's the pregnancy hormones, but every time I see this I bawl; it just is so sweet!

SuburbanCorrespondent said...

I'm with the ones who thought it was a joke and those people were going to get mauled. I had the cursor positioned on the "x" button and my hand at the mouse, ready to avoid traumatizing my children forever.

Oh, wait, I've already done that.

andrea said...

I know this comment is on a really old post, but I just found your blog and am reading the archives. That video was just so sweet. I remember watching a documentary about this and I was shocked to see that Christian still remembered them. Makes me tear up every time!
