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.
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.

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.

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:
