Disney MOANA

I was able to see Moana with my nieces and nephews a few weeks ago. My niece Jacq walked out repeating, "That was so good. I would see that again!"
MOANA stars voices from Dwayne Johnson (Maui) and newcomer Auli’i Cravalho (Moana). It was directed by Disney legends Ron Clements & Don Hall (“Aladdin,” “The Little Mermaid,” “The Princess and the Frog,” etc.) with music by Lin-Manuel Miranda (“Hamilton”). 
The movie story celebrates the Pacific Island cultures and introduces new Disney characters that will keep you laughing and smiling throughout the entire film. It is a show that is great for the entire family.
The film opens in theaters November 23rd.

Enjoy some printables and games from the movie below.

Christmas Love Letters from God #BOOK #GIVEAWAY

I love Christmas. It is my favorite holiday. I love holiday movies, books, decorations, lights, and everything. Most importantly, I love the reason for the season.
I discovered a cool book for children ages 4-8 called Christmas Love Letters from God that tells the story of Jesus’ birth in a great way. The book includes 7 stories, beginning with Isaiah’s prophecy and ending with the visit of the 3 wise men.
After each story, children will find a letter addressed to them from God (there is a line to write his/her name). It is designed to make them feel special and inspire them with messages of love and hope.
I love this book. Check out this video of it.
It can be purchased on Amazon, Barnes & Noble

PROMISE RING

What's love got to do with it? What has happened to our world where your relationship isn't official unless you post it on social media?! People used to give a promise ring to show their love and commitment to each other. I find it really romantic.
Is this ring a passing fad or a new way for couples to declare their love?
Brilliance.com has a new Promise Ring collection. It is a lovely way to say "I Promise" to love you and be faithful to our relationship. Check them out and let your loved one know your promise of love.

DOCTOR STRANGE

Marvel's DOCTOR STRANGE opened in theaters November 4th.
Marvel Studios’ “Doctor Strange” follows the story of world-famous neurosurgeon Dr. Stephen Strange who, in his quest for healing his hands after a horrific car accident, discovers powerful magic in a mysterious place known as Kamar-Taj. He quickly learns that this is not just a center for healing but also the front line of a battle against unseen dark forces bent on destroying our reality. He makes new friends and discovers a new set of magical powers in his grasp. 
FUN FACTS ABOUT THE FILM: 
For those of ya'll who like to travel, you should know this film was shot in London, New York, Kathmandu (Nepal) and Hong Kong. 

To research his character, Dr. Stephen Strange, Benedict Cumberbatch spent time with neurosurgeons, and the director, DP and production designer all visited New York City operating rooms and emergency rooms to guide them towards the lighting and textures they would need to create a realistic hospital environment onscreen. 

Doctor Strange’s car in the film is a Lamborghini, which he drives when he is a surgeon. Six Lamborghinis were required for filming. 
Here is a clip of one of my favorite parts:

DreamWork’s TROLLS

I was given the opportunity to view the DreamWork's Trolls movie. It is hilarious! Combine voices of some very talented actors (Anna Kendrick, Zooey Deschanel, James Corden, Gwen Stefani, Russell Brand, and a ton more), an amazing soundtrack including a song from Justin Timberlake, and gangs of hilarious lines and you have a movie that you absolutely MUST see.
I promise the entire family will love this movie and every character in it.
Don't believe me? Watch the official trailer:
Below are some fun printable pages for your kiddies to get excited for the movie to hit theaters November 4th.

NIGHTMARE ON 13TH HAUNTED HOUSE

One thing I hate to love and love to hate about Halloween time is going to haunted houses. 
There are some really awesome ones in Utah to visit starting in September to get you in the Halloween spirit.
 One that I make sure to visit EVERY year is Nightmare on 13th
 The building is located on 13th (1300) South and is super spooky.
Turn out the lights and it is even spookier at night.
Every year, the haunted house changes the theme to really give you a fright.  
This year's theme is Phantasms.
There are plenty of characters and decorations to feed on your fears. 
 There are freaky photo opportunities outside you can take with your cell or camera
or you can have a professional photographer snap a photo of you that you download and share to social media for free. NO PHOTOGRAPHY INSIDE.
Do you have what it takes to make it all the way through? Buy tickets at the door, go to their website to find a coupon and purchase tickets online, or text NIGHTMARE to 31996 to save some cash and get updates on deals/events.
