Walt Disney Animation Studios released it’s newest film, “Moana,” over Thanksgiving break. If you haven’t had a chance to see it yet, I urge you to go. No matter if you only have boys. No matter if you don’t even have kids. If you love and appreciate Disney animated films, you will not want to miss seeing this one in theaters. “Moana” may just call to you for all the right reasons.
“Moana” is the story of a 16 year old chieftain’s daughter with a passion for her people and the sea.[more ...]

We are not typically folks who start Christmas traditions right after Halloween. That’s just never been us. Growing up, my mom was very adamant that we celebrate all
the seasons throughout the year, so it really offended her sensibilities to see Christmas decor popping up in stores before Halloween. I’ve got a lot of those same sentiments, and I usually stick to them, but I have to admit something this year.[more ...]
The turkey has been eaten. The lights are being hung. The tinsel is appearing in store windows. It’s time for the most wonderful time of the year!
Christmastime is my favorite season. It’s hard to be in a sour mood listening to Christmas carols and drinking hot cocoa, am I right? I love seeing all of the lights and decorations popping up all over town, and I can’t wait to begin the countdown to Christmas day excitement with my girls.
Meaningful Holiday Traditions
Another one of my favorite holiday traditions is our family’s yearly Christmas card. It’s like pulling teeth to actually take
said photos, but once we get our proofs back, everyone is glad we did it (I only ask for this once a year, so I figure they can tough it out for an hour)![more ...]
I have been waiting and waiting and waiting
for this movie to come to the theaters. As a lifelong Harry Potter fan, I can never have enough of the Wizarding World in my life. From the books to the movies to the theme parks, I’ve been loving Harry and the gang for most of my life (I started reading the series as a freshman in high school, so I really feel like I “grew up” with the characters), so you can imagine my excitement upon hearing of another possible series.[more ...]
Have you heard about the new animated feature “Sing
?” From Illumination Entertainment, the same studio that brought you the summer hit “The Secret Life of Pets” and the beloved “Despicable Me” franchise, comes the sixth animated installment of family friendly fun. My kids are DYING
to see this film, and I’ll admit that it looks pretty cute.
I usually don’t mind paying for family friendly movies (especially if I can get the super bargain matinee price!), but it never hurts to go for free, right?[more ...]
