As always, this holiday season has had us bustling from place to place, visiting family, and taking the kids various activities with their cousins and friends. Amidst all of this busyness, there have been a few times when both kids and parents needed some down time. Even though the Christmas classics were a hit before school got out, there are two non-Christmas movies that won out for making the kids happy over the break.
First, the kids and their cousins were thrilled by Brave. Our cousins hadn't seen the movie yet, and they loved it. My girls would watch it over and over again if we let them. If you have some Brave fans in your home, continue the fun (and education!) by adding a little Scottish to your New Year's Eve celebration.

The other movie our kids have begged to watch is Adventures in Lalaloopsy Land: Search for Pillow. This movie came out earlier in 2012, and is one of the top new DVDs for preschoolers. The reason my kids have wanted to watch the movie so bad, is because Lalaloopsy dolls have taken over our house. Did this happen to anyone else this year? I think the dolls are adorable, and I absolutely love that my girls play with them, using their imaginations to create all kinds of stories, for hours (and I mean literally, for hours). I will say, however, that having watched Coraline, I will never be able to look at one of those adorable Lalaloopsy dolls without getting just the tiniest bit creeped out.
Which movies have been your family's favorites this holiday season?
