MICKEY’S CHRISTMAS CAROL: 30th Anniversary Special Edition Available on Blu-ray Combo Pack

I’ve always had a special place in my heart for Mickey Mouse! I was very excited to share this movie with my kids a few weekends ago. Every Saturday night, we have a Family Movie Night, providing we don’t have other plans, of course. Even though this movie starred the cute and adorable Mickey, the story line still remained a bit dark for my kids’ liking. They are very sensitive to “scary” or “darker” movies. This fear includes any “bad guy”, regardless of the outcome. Hubby and I enjoyed this movie as it is a classic tale, and I thought … Continue reading

THE LITTLE MERMAID: DIAMOND EDITION on Blu-ray & Digital Copy from #Disney

While the movie, The Little Mermaid was originally in theatres back in 1989, over 20 years ago, the story is just as appealing to my 8 year old daughter as it was to me when I first saw it (and I was in grade 9).

I can’t wait to watch it over and over and over again with my children. The Diamond Edition of The Little Mermaid, Blu-ray Combo Pack comes out TODAY, October … Continue reading
